AR apps for education – developing augmented reality for learning

Information technology and innovation are useless if they cannot be adapted for learning, that is why FlexReality, among other things, is developing AR applications for education. We strongly believe that augmented reality will become a popular learning method in the future in schools, universities, colleges and even homeschooled children.

Already now, augmented reality in education is used and brings concrete results thanks to three characteristic elements:

  • contextuality;
  • interactivity;
  • spatiality.

The first concept implies the natural introduction of virtual objects into the surrounding space so that they do not seem like something superfluous and alien. The actual environment and virtual objects, which are, in fact, just pieces of code, are displayed simultaneously and complex – this is contextuality.

The second advantage of using augmented reality in education is interactivity. This means that you can interact with virtual objects as if they were real: move, reposition, and even destroy. Except for the physical sensations of touch, smell, etc. This level is still unattainable for our technologies.

The third element is spatiality. AR learning apps offer interaction with 3D virtual objects that have their own coordinates in space. The user himself can freely move in space to view the object of augmented reality from different angles and angles.

In education, AR applications are effective, because they allow you to visually study and work with devices or objects, access to which is extremely problematic in real life. Launch the hadron collider, conduct an experiment with a graphite rheostat, work with Tesla’s transformer, prepare a “fire snake” in a chemistry lesson – and all this without the slightest risk to the life and health of students.

The cost of developing augmented reality applications for education

Pricing depends on the following aspects:

  • technical complexity of the idea implementation;
  • scope of work;
  • the number of involved programmers, voice actors, artists, etc .;
  • terms of development.

We do not take numbers from “the ceiling” and always draw up a technical specification with a client before starting. The customer describes his vision of the future project, functionality, etc. In general, we sit down at the negotiating table and discuss the accompanying nuances, after which we create a detailed TS for the FlexReality team.

We consider two payment options:

  1. Hourly. The cost of developing augmented reality for education in this case depends on the number of specialists and the level of their qualifications. At the stage of forming the technical specification, we also draw up an estimate so that the customer understands what funds and what will be spent.
  2. For the project. We estimate the scale of work, negotiate deadlines and form the cost for the entire project. Services are paid in full, but can be divided into 5-6 payments.

In both cases, you can follow the development, we provide detailed reports at all stages of cooperation.

How Augmented Reality Works in Learning

The effectiveness of AR is due to three features: interactivity, contextuality, and spaciousness. A visual representation of the object of research and its visualization awakens interest in the child. Live animations with which you can fully interact are much more interesting than static pictures and schematic images.

An example of using augmented reality is the BookVAR AR application, developed by our web studio for the Kiev Department of Education and Science. By installing it on a smartphone or tablet, children will be able to point the camera at a specific page of the textbook and receive three-dimensional visualization of experiments in chemistry, physics, astronomy, mathematics and geography. This simplifies the presentation of complex material and makes the lessons more interesting and engaging.

We strive to emphasize interactivity and visuals in order to increase the effectiveness of education and make this process vivid and memorable. There is no better way to increase knowledge of a child than to show that learning is not only useful, but also can be fun.
