In the digital age, new technologies like Augmented Reality (AR) are becoming important in many fields. Education is one of the most open and affected fields. Students have access to more and more information, so traditional lectures aren’t enough to keep them interested and motivated. So here we will know the reasons to use Augmented Reality(AR) in trainings.
Here are a few of the things we think are good about using AR in education and training:
Researchers say that VR & AR can motivate students and trainees to learn and help them improve their educational practices that are based on reality. “AR has the potential to make learners more interested and motivated to find resources and use them in the real world in ways that have never been done before,” say some other authors.
Encourage intellectual curiosity and teamwork:
In the digital age, new technologies are important. Traditional ways of teaching aren’t as effective as they used to be. With AR and other technologies, students can now take charge of their own learning, and teachers can make students more interested in learning and thinking critically about the world around them. AR technology lets teachers and students work together by letting them talk to each other about shapes or arrangements.
Augmented reality lets students learn in a different way, which helps them remember more for longer. Students can access augmented models of anything from a part of the human body to a molecule (in augmented biology) to a famous landmark by scanning them with their phones. To finish the cycle, they can go directly to websites from the Augment app and get more information in an easy-to-understand way.
Manual Skills Training:
Some studies show that Augmented Reality (AR) is a good technology for training in the field of maintenance and assembly because instructions or location-dependent information can be directly linked and/or attached to physical objects. Another benefit of AR-based training is that the real devices used in the training scenario are used in the training. So, the trainee also gets to use the tools in real life, which helps train the right sensorimotor skills.
Another example is AR welding, which is a simulation of welding training. It helps future welders get the skills and confidence. And they need it before they go to a real workshop. This kind of training system is proving to work, last, be safe, and keep people safe. It also saves money and time when training professional welders in training centres and industries.
Here are those 4 reasons why we can incorporate Augmented Reality in trainings.
