Learning in AR & VR

King Coronel

Founder & CEO
Lumos Education Solutions

Games are an important learning tool. They provide immersive, interactive, and creative spaces for learners of all ages.

Learning technologists and educators are finding ways to harness AR and VR, or also known as augmented reality and virtual reality, to enhance learning experiences. With AR and VR technology becoming more accessible and affordable, the possibilities it can offer to learners and educators alike, are endless. In 2016, Pokemon Go, a mobile game with Augmented Reality (AR) technology made it big in the world. Today, Pokemon Go has 147 million active users monthly.

But is learning with AR and VR is as effective as we believe it to be?
