Explore how augmented reaklity can provide “students a window into the unseen parts of the environment” to deepen their scientific understanding
Context: Harvard University.
Program: Students are challenged with solving an environmental mystery and capitalize on augmented reality fetures to reveal information about the natural environment. Students capture photos, video, voice recordings as evidence and use environmental probes to collect real-time data in a virtual representation of a pond ecosystem (EdoMUVE) and in the natural environment. This experience allows for connection between real world, virtual world and mobile learning environments for students.
The technology drives the students deeper into authentic observation and interation with the environment and with each other.
