New Report From JISC: “AR and VR in Learning and Teaching: Survey Findings”
From JISC’s Introductory Blog Post:
In working to shape a technology-enhanced vision for Education 4.0, Jisc is always looking for ways to collaborate with members, listen to their experiences, and learn from their ideas. It’s in this spirit that we launched our survey into the use of immersive technologies in teaching and learning.
Experiences and Aspirations
More than 100 lecturers, researchers and learning technologists at universities and colleges responded to what we believe is the first survey of its kind in the UK. The results offer powerful insights into the value of immersive tech.
The findings highlight an appetite for augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR). In fact, 82% of all respondents said they were very interested in their institution making more use of AR and VR technologies in future (rated 4 or 5 on a scale of 1 to 5).
The key benefits of these new technologies are described as the immersive and engaging learning experience (32% of respondents), and the opportunities for situated and experiential learning (28% of respondents). Meanwhile, 8% said using AR and VR improves learning outcomes.
