Human beings are visual in nature, but most education is still driven by textbooks and recorded lecture videos. Here’s an exploration of a new approach to encourage learning in kids using fun Augmented Reality games. Let’s talk about the user interface challenges that AR presents, and some tricks of the trade as AR settles in as an entirely new medium:

– Visual Learning: State of the Art
– Augmented Reality on Mobile phones: What’s the big deal?
– Kids and their mobile games
– Interactive AR worlds: Learn by playing, walking around
– Gestures & Interface for AR apps: Work in Progress
– Spatial Gestures: Your Phone is a Wand
– The Math Behind It All
– A Fresh Start for Computing
