MAVR at ACTC2017

  1. MAVR (Mixed Augmented Virtual Realities): The Future or a Fad?
  2. Augmented Reality Design Principles for Informal Learning
  3. Mixed Reality Gaming Session

In our interactive poster presentation and technology-enhanced learning session, Eric, Mehrasa, Erin, and I showcased some Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) applications, such as Aurasma, Blippar, Google Expeditions, and we also introduced a number of resources on the integration of MAVR in English language education; for example, Paul Driver’s learner-generated AR realia. Moreover, we discussed a variety of case uses of AR in informal learning environments (e.g., TEDxKyoto, refer to ARientation Project YouTube channel for more examples).

In our mixed reality gaming session, the audience worked in group to solve a series of puzzles and adventures using virtual (Google Cardboard) and augmented reality (Blippar) technologies in an augmented reality enhanced learning environment. We first introduced Fukuchiyama AR Rally 2017 as one of the case uses, and then the audience went through some of its steps to accomplish the mission.
