VIRTUAL REALITY

Technology that replicates an environment that simulates physical presence in places in the real world or imagined worlds and lets the user interact in that world.

Virtual Reality has the potential to render physical tools, equipement and instruments, digitally - and place them in the hands of students instantly, at no cost.

AUGMENTED REALITY

An enhanced version of reality created by the use of technology to overlay digital information on an image of something being viewed through a device (as a smartphone camera)

Today, AR can be seen in classroom applications, or other places such as office meetings or constructions sites. The possibilities are just beginning.
