Supporting Diverse Learners with AR and Virtual Coaches
Augmented Reality (AR) can be used to embed supports into the learning environment in order to meet the needs of your diverse learners. For example, AR can be used to embed virtual coaches in the form of avatars or videos that are only triggered at a given location using the camera built into a mobile device. These virtual coaches can provide curriculum or behavior support. For curriculum support, the AR triggers can provide additional instructions or strategies for completing a learning task at the time of need. For behavior support, AR can be used to embed social stories that guide learners who have special needs in choosing the most appropriate behaviors for a given context. Join Dr. Luis Perez for a session where you learn how to create and embed your own AR triggers in order to create more supportive learning experiences for learners who have special needs.
