Augmented Reality (AR) DATA GATHERING GPS - Satellite-basedpositioning system

  • Phones & cameras
  • picture codingto maps
  • video streaming
  • soundscapes

Sensors - physical objects - sensors reacting to other sensors Mobile apps - QR-codes etc - online databases - social communities 6. The very nature of ARis mobility DATA PROJECTION 7.

  • A virtual world isa simulated space or a world.
  • The infrastructure is createdand community of practise is defined by its users.
  • Experiential features:
  • immersion- identity
  • illusion ofunmediated interaction

  • Collaborative learning
  • A study group is making use of

  • European Literary History
  • Virtual learning pathway for 2nd level students
  • Compared learningin two secondary high schools
  • some students used SL
  • some students used text book

33. In literaturethe theory istext-based.Good place forthat is a book ora VLE. SL-pathway substitutes e.g. timeline-workor groupwork ofliterary history. Is was surprising how teacher got to know the students in many levels here in SL. The students remembered the learning matterwell - even aftera long time.
