This week, we were doing the presentation of our Augmented Reality teaching materials. Designing teaching material isn't easy when it comes to the emphasis on pedagogy and educational outcomes. Before this, I thought designing AR material is as easy as coming up with a video and let my target audience scan and watch the video. Actually it could be something meaningful and educational when we include introduction, objective, learning outcomes and instruction on how to use it. This is crucial because myself, as an educator, may not always be available when students are studying or need help. As a future educator, I am hoping to distribute teaching material in an appropriate manner, which mean accommodate different learning styles and facilitate students' learning. So, I was thinking about what are the potential of using AR materials in the teaching and learning process?
Firstly, AR materials is able to builds self-knowledge, self-confidence and encourages me to take responsibility for my own learning. Besides, it has also provide option for students to select learning materials that meets their level of knowledge and interest. This also allows students to learn and where it is more convenient and improve their interest and motivation in learning. On the other hand, AR materials would be disadvantanges when you have slow internet connections or older devices may make accessing course materials frustrating.
