Project deliverable Open Access
This deliverable reflects the work conducted for Task T3.3 involving the development of the ARETE Augmented Reality mobile app for Pilot 1 and also presents further research on the area of applied AR for advancing literacy skills.
WWL, is an SME with 30+ years clinical/educational experience and 10 years technical experience with our online literacy programme (including Web-AR), working with teachers, parents and children. We started research for the ARETE Project by considering the following factors for the cohort involved: age, educational limitations, access to technology in school and at home. It is important to note that our ARETE Pilot 1 cohort are schoolchildren between the ages 9 to 12 years old and as such, they are subject to restrictions for children of this age, that precludes using AR/VR wearable technology in school. Unfortunately, for this cohort, this significantly restricts the use of state-of-the-art AR technology that may be commercially available or available in research labs. According to information gleaned from our Systematic Literature Review, however, we can produce state-of-the-art for both content and technology for literacy improvement with the app.
Additionally, WP3 has taken the initiative to further explore areas of advancement beyond the state of the art with applications on vowel training and utilising eye gazing functionality for reading speed assessments (lead by UCD).
Over the last few years mobile device technology (tablets & smartphones) has advanced with significant improvements in using AR software and tracking systems. This has heralded a mass adoption of AR apps across many sectors e.g., Healthcare, Air & Space, Marketing and in particular EdTech which is growing, particularly in tertiary and secondary education. ARETE Pilot-1 focuses on the primary school sector, to provide the following:
Meaningful educational content
Effective AR object interaction with the real world
Added value over existing pedagogy
