Using Augmented Reality for Teaching Chemistry
Keywords:Augmented Reality (AR), Education, Smart Learning Application
Different technologies have been implemented in the educational sector to improve the method of teaching and learning. Augmented reality is one of the most trending technologies in the f ield of computer graphics and is used in different departments, especially in education as a smart learning environment. Augmented Reality (AR) technology has effective potential that enhances and replaces the old way of learning into a new digitized smart learning environment by converting the school books into a virtual 3D environment containing experiments and object having animation, which helps students extracting and absorbing complex concepts in less amount of time. AR is a computer vision-based technology that works by tracking the surrounding using a smartphone camera and then superimposing virtual 3D objects into the real world. Capabilities of Augmented Reality make classes more engaging, collaborative, and interactive.
Studying may not be every student's cup of tea but with the help of smart learn-
ing environment school lessons become much more interesting, interactive, and
fun to learn. This research gives a brief insight that the interactive AR chem-
istry application may lead the students to grasp diff icult concepts of chemistry
more easily in an entertaining and engaging ways.
