ARducation – business education with Augmented Reality

In teaching and training, learning styles can be triggered in new ways, and trainings can be improved. All this calls for implementation of AR in vocational education of the sales and marketing staff, as well as the illustration of technical processes. Recently, AR has come to vocational education to promote the business and administration programs.
The Danish Vocational College Vestfyn holds the innovation project ARducation. Up to 10,000 students from Southern Denmark are involved in learning processes with AR and thus, get challenged and extended their STEM competences. The teachers create courses integrating AR, both in technical subjects and interdisciplinarily. Ordinary teaching content comes alive, when the students, for example, apply AR for illustrating a city map, for exploring theoretical business models such as SWOT analysis or simply for presenting themselves with AR-business cards to future work places.
Project manager Regina Lamscheck-Nielsen, Moeve, will introduce to Augmented Reality, its commercial use and ARducation. Vocational teacher Janne Fløjstrup, Vestfyns, will present a case from her teaching practice with AR and the impact on the students.
