Augmented reality holds the power to transform the educational system: it makes learning a far more engaging (and FUN) experience.
AR is coming to the classrooms, whether you like it or not. Simply because the technology opens up brand new ways and methods of learning for students, helping them easily understand the complex information in any subject.
Not to mention that kids these days are strongly infused by technology. They can’t imagine life without Apple, Google, and apps, so education must adapt to their new perception patterns.
