An augmented reality sandbox - 0 views

  •  
    This box can be informative and fun AR environment for primary or elementary school students to form topographies and simulate real time water flow in geology and science lessons.
  •  
    I hated geography lesson when I was in high school and while I see those kinds of application, I wish studying at high school now with those technological tools :) I think it can be really beneficial and also gain creativity of students.
  •  
    I thought besides making sand castles on the beach, primary or elementary students can play sand to learn topographies and water flow at the same time. And yeah why not, for high school students it can also be fun and beneficial for improving their creativity :)

    I say the similar things at the comment of Kutay's share. I think our sport habit can change in time with these device and application. There were some arguments related to integrate Google Glasses into some sport type at the time that was popular. Maybe, in a near future we can see these kinds of changes.
  •  
    Selcuk you are right but it is still very expensive to use it. on the other hand, such as in Football, Soccer, Ice hokey money is not a big problem for federations and they can find a lot of sponsors about it. That is why i believe in a short time they will start to use these kind of augmented reality features to make sports much better.
  •  
    Maybe after federations start to use and these application become widespread, the personal model of those can be produced at cheaper price. However, I agree with you, price is one the biggest problem at that sector.

    It gives you a big opportunity to be in the game when you do sport. You can challenge with yourself by seeing yourself in the real sport field. Also you can improve your performance and learn with enjoyable games.

    How fun it looks! It gives immediate feedback about the time and velocity. It visualizes the invisible; such as a map. Yet, it looks practicing more than teaching a new concept as I understand. Also, the user interacts mainly with physical objects rather than accessing the virtual information. So, can we call it lightly augmented reality?
  •  
    I agree with you Busra, it is very lightly augmented:) We may say that in time you may learn how to run in which distance and which tempo but that is all for now.
  •  
    I agree with büşra, it a kind of visual version of runtastic with that form but it can be developed. For example, think about you run at treadmill (maybe upgraded version for VR) and with the VR glasses you can go to the any environment from the list you can choose. I think, it would be fantastic.

Augmented reality in sport - 0 views

  •  
    A short trailer for the future of sport with augmented reality. We can imagine how it will change the performance and also popularity of sports. Furthermore, it seems that augmented reality will change the way of playing, more challenged games in every sport field.
  •  
    I watched it before and when I watched Nintendo Wii come to my mind. That changes to habit of game console and I think it is revolutionary. With those applications, maybe our sports habits can change in time.
  •  
    Actually when i watched it I thought Xbox which recognise you and put you in diffirent games. But Wii also not a bad example. I had a Wii platform but the limitation on that is the equipments which gives you a chance to move without doing the real move because of their calibration, i guess.

Doodle 3D - 0 views

  •  
    Doodle3D Transform is a new 3D app that you can transfom your 2D drawings easily into 3D designs. Beside drawing by hand, you can also scan your photos or upload existing ones. After completing designs, you can send to 3D printer and have it. This project attract much attention at Kickstarter and they collected enough fund. This application can not be a sort of augmented reality one, I don't know but I want to share. I think, it is very usable and helpful for especially kindergarten students. Besides, while STEM is gaining many attention at the education society; this app can also be usable at other level with developing some extensions. Creativity is very important for all students at education and it is very appropriate for that mission. Using pen at our mobile education is still can be spectacular sometimes and I cannot imagine what will possibly happen if developers of that application succeed.

    Thanks for sharing! It looks really beneficial and inspiring for not only kids but also for all the people who want to make a tangible product which they have created by just a simple drawing. And the best thing is that they don't need to know any programming language to design.
  •  
    I want that! Where we can buy it?:)) Especially for kids it is really helpfull and enjoyable to realize which they draw something. It is like dreams come to the reality:)
  •  
    :)) Now the beta version is accessible for Kickstarter backers and the final version come out at February. You can get detailed information from their website; http://doodle3d.com/ I continue to follow that project, I will also share the developments at there.

Microsoft HoloLens - 0 views

  •  
    Microsoft HoloLens is the first self-contained, holographic computer, enabling you to engage with your digital content and interact with holograms in the world around you. It is a miraculous device, I think. When watched the video, it is einevitable not to be excited. Its sale is only for app developer and it is also expensive, 3000 $. However, as it become widespread and develop, it may be a routine device. Also there is another video video, shot at Case Western Reserve University, shows doctors examining bodies as they float in midair, creating a new way to teach anatomy. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SKpKlh1-en0 Think about the time when that device become reachable easily, think about using it at the classes commonly. Maybe changing curriculum according to these or another augmented reality ones. I think, there could be revolution at education with these steps in the future. That pictures are taken from the presentation of that device; http://s01.shiftdelete.net/img/general_b/15-10/06/hololens.jpg http://s01.shiftdelete.net/img/content/15-10/06/hololens-2-1444146365.JPG Also, there is a funny(or sad) photoshop work related to possible usage of device at our country; http://s11.postimg.org/cukj78a4z/holoturk.png

Development taught by various authentic activities - 0 views

  •  
    Dr. Darren Kruisselbrink teaches collage students motor development and perceptual motor development by observing and interacting with babies and pre-elementary children. He changes the way he teaches after seeing slides and lectures bore his class and lead no learning. He then looks for ways to link theory with practice and comes up with in-class baby observation and a community service which enables kids to play, parents to relax, university to bond with community, students to learn and observe motor development of pre-elementary children. This is one of the best authentic activity I've ever seen and similarly with Lave's thoughts his class contains community service, group work, and learning by doing. Kruisselbrink says this kind of teaching makes students thirsty for knowledge, creates lots of questions and curiosity, higher participation, and deeper learning.

Augmented Reality App - Elements 4D - 1 views

  •  
    It is an application for mobile phones which you can view elements as virtual from your screen. You can view all elements seperately and also, if you put together them, they can from a product that you can see from the screen. The principle is very simple, after you install the application to your phone you can download the pdf of element cubes from the websites. You can also, view the demo from the website of app; http://elements4d.daqri.com/#demo

    If you ever use it in your classes, please let us know Selçuk :) A friend mentioned that a similar 4D app has great implications for biology. I was wondering if it also has implications for other branches of science.
  •  
    Chemistry and technology... Who you gonna call: SELÇUK :) That's an interesting app, however I think it's not enough on its own to teach anything. It still requires appropriate curriculum to make use of it. So, maybe we can think about how to use this technology as best as we could. What kinds of activities can be created?
  •  
    There are other applications like that, for example Anatomy 4D for biology classes. Maybe your friend could use that application, Ceren. There are also Animal 4D+ and Space 4D+ for another lessons as I know. I also see the studies of Bilal Özçakır who is research assistant at Ahi Evran University. He develop some applications for his doctoral thesis with Erdinç Çakıroğlu at our university. I use that application at my classes at university and even at that age, students enjoy it very much. Even after lesson, they continue to use it and the effect of it at smaller age can be more motivating, I think. Beside like Armağan said, it is beneficial only with the appropriate curriculum and also well-designed lesson, I think. The lack of micro level understanding can develop with these applications at chemistry. Thanks for the jingle, also :)
  •  
    I tried this application Selcuk. It s really entertaining :)
  •  
    I am happy that you find it entertaining. When I first use it, I cannot leave my mobile phone for a while :)
  •  
    I think this app looks fine to visualize an abstract topic which is elements. I agree with you Armağan about the necessity of appropriate curriculum. For example, an activity could be helpful that allows to students arrange the locations of elements based on their atomic radius in a periodic table. Therefore, the students can observe atomic radius of elements is increasing or decreasing when running left to right in rows and running up and down in columns of the periodic table. Like Selçuk said that those applications are used in other fields too. I've seen some works of Bilal Özçakır when I joined at a presentation. He visualizes the geometric shapes in 3D from QR codes. For example, you see a geometric shape from every perspective of it and you test yourself with how top or bottom perspectives of a geometric shape looks like by looking its one side. Thus, you have a realistic experience with virtual objects in immediacy.
  •  
    I wrote at OdtüClass forum that interested people get learn from the beginning about developing at least basic applications. When I talked with Özçakır, he also said to me he learned the whole process from the online sources with his efforts. Of course, instead of open-source applications; the aim will be be to gain money but I think appearing more amateur applications cause many advantages at these areas.

Learning to Think Mathematically - 1 views

  •  
    This link contains a small writing of Roy Pea, learning sciences pioneer. Putting on emphasis on the guidelines of mathematical education it also shares some ideas on how to use technology for mathamatic teaching. I find it interesting that although this is a 31-year-old document, ideas about teaching is quite up-to-date. Article contains ideas on the aim of the mathematical education which is to nurture problem solving skills and suggests softwares should be harmonious with this fact instead of drill and practice softwares.

    In this article Roy Pea, who is one of the pioneers of learning sciences, discussing how computers are changing our cognitive lifes beyond amplifying. Article first supports this proposition, then discusses implications of applying computer-based technologies into education. Lastly it suggests updating educational practices in order to be harmonious with this new emerging cognitive life. This article is also important for being quite early, it constitutes one of the foot stones of the learning sciences area.

  •  
    Patricia Benner published a book whose name is Novice to Expert in 1982 and at that book she mentioned 5 levels from novice to experts. These levels are; novice, advanced beginner, competent, proficient and the expert. All these levels and the book is about nursing but I want to share this short and funny video to you due to relating with expert and novices. You can examine the definition of these levels from the link below if you want; http://www.health.nsw.gov.au/nursing/projects/Documents/novice-expert-benner.pdf
