AR&VR in Education
The fourth BestEDU transnational meeting (M4) took place in Iceland on 29 August - 2 September 2022. The focus of the meeting was on best practice examples in Icelandic education during Covid19 as well as innovative use in educational methods and approaches. Project partners and teachers also participated in a training session on practical use of VR & AR in education.
"The training session at 1238 – The Battle of Iceland was a unique experience and showed me, how VR can be used in a way, which makes learning fully immersive and lively. As a history teacher I am focused on, how history can come to life through both the living word and rich resources. A continuous struggle is to let students experience history – because it requires a high level of abstraction. VR has potentials here to both let the emerge into the past and still experience artefacts and resources with historical accuracy. Same goes for AR, but here the students also can become producers of quality content. Highlighting the iterative process between analysis, reflections, and production. This way of using technology to enhance learning possibilities seem to hold great potentials." (Roland Hachmann, Unviersity College SydDanmark).
