What is ​​Augmented Reality?

If you've ever played a game that uses the camera on your mobile device to superimpose information or characters on the world around you, you've experienced augmented reality. As a field, AR includes any use of technology to add to the experience of being in a place, whether it's through the addition of informational resources or the use of your real environment to play a game.

In education and in many other fields, the ability to use AR to present an interactive set of visual resources can be very useful. As a multi-modal instructional practice, it allows for annotations on maps, artwork, and even entire rooms that invite students to explore the depth of information on the topic at a comfortable pace, and with an intuitive self-directed path through the content.
