SPEAKER SESSIONS

Immersive Technology Stage

25 February 2020 | 12:00 - 12:30 | English | Use of Augmented Reality in classrooms

The presentation will discuss the potentials of using augmented reality in the integration of teaching, learning and assessment. It will provide an overview of multiple mobile applications that help produce lessons and assessments that are both fun to work with on the part of the students yet very informative on the part of the teachers. It is an interactive workshop where attendees will be given a chance to use one of the free apps in the presentation of a lexical item and eventually its assessment.
