What is the difference between augmented reality and virtual reality?
Augmented Reality (AR) is the layering of data over 3D spaces to produce a new experience of the world, sometimes referred to as “blended reality,” amplifies access to information, bringing new opportunities for learning.
Virtual Reality (VR) describes computer-generated environments that simulate the physical presence of people and objects to generate realistic sensory experiences. (Horizon Report, 2016)
With virtual and augmented reality (VR and AR), we are on the cusp of the next wave of the Digital Revolution. As we reimagine education in the digital age, immersive computing may offer us one of the greatest opportunities to transform learning.
