Augmented Reality (AR) is a growing field of technology where real life is modified and enhanced by computer-generated sights and sounds. The most common use of AR can be seen through mobile apps. Point your device’s camera at something that the app recognizes, and it will generated a 3D animation or video superimposed over whatever is on your camera’s screen. The effect makes the computer-generated item appear like it’s really there.

    apps today are great and give classrooms so much to interact with. But anyway,
    it rests on the hands of Augmented Reality developers and the end-users that are made
    specifically with AR in mind, taking advantage of its possibilities.
