Mixed-Reality and Project Based Curriculum Development : Empowering STEM Learners and Educators in Southwest Virginia Appalachian Region

  title={Mixed-Reality and Project Based Curriculum Development : Empowering STEM Learners and Educators in Southwest Virginia Appalachian Region},
  author={Denis Gra{\vc}anin and Barbara Stewart and Timothy Duncan and Mohamed Handosa and Hendrik Schulze},
The recent advances in mixed-reality (MR), mobile and related technologies indicate a tipping point in our ability to go beyond the standard educational, and training settings and study adaptive processes during complex physical, social, and educational interactions in realistic complex environments. Such technologies are exciting because they permit educators to move beyond artificial experimental settings that have limited ecological validity. We hypothesize that using these technologies in a…

A learning environment for augmented reality mobile learning
In this study ARLE is used to add AR technologies into notes or books created by the teacher, thereby supplementing both the theoretical and practical content without any programming skills needed on the designers' behalf.
Where the Action Is - The Foundations of Embodied Interaction
This book addresses the philosophical bases of human-computer interaction and looks in particular at how tangible and social approaches to interaction are related, how they can be used to analyze and understand embodied interaction, and how they could affect the design of future interactive systems.
Evaluating wide-field-of-view augmented reality with mixed reality simulation
This work has built a system that uses full-surround virtual reality to simulate augmented reality with different field of views, with and without tracking artifacts, and experiments with wide-field-of-view annotations that link elements far apart in the visual field.
