Technology in our hand becomes technology of the future and augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) become an essential part of educational technology. It optimizes learning, improves comprehension and increases motivation for learning, especially for young people who can’t imagine their lives without mobile devices and computers. Augmented reality helps with visual , auditory and kinaesthetic senses and it engages all of them and, therefore, improves the perception of reality. It is already crystal clear that augmented reality apps will change the way we educate our children.
