Nowadays, students are more concerned with new technologies than they were in the 90’s. In fact, as children are more and more surrounded by new technologies, education has to fit to this habit. 

AR Code is a new technology that allows you to interact in real time with 3D content in your direct environment. With an AR Code, you can add 3D interactive contents in the real world that surrounds you.

You can scan by default an AR Code with an iOS or Android device. Augmented Reality Code can be printed on a brochure, a showcase, a packaging, or an educational book... The scanning process is simple, just point at the code, it will download the digital content then let you interact with the 3D model, video, sound, game or information that appear in Augmented Reality on your device's screen. The process takes a few seconds. 

AR Code in today’s educational system

Students are attracted to new technologies, the AR Code concept is quickly adopted by young generations. Introducing AR Code in educational field facilitates visual and interactive learning. The AR Code could be, for instance:

  • used to display games such as 3D logic games, 3D puzzle and memory games at elementary school.
  • used for the science courses to show the fauna and flora at college.
  • used in biology, to display the organs of the human body, their functioning at high-school.
  • used to display complexes datas at university.

Here is an example of a DNA molecule displayed via an AR Code:

AR Code can also be advantageous to dispense learning through videos or hologramsRegarding professional education, AR Codes could also be introduced for industrial learning while displaying machines operation, like the whole processes of their function or an expert explanation via a video. 

How can AR Code transform education? 

AR Code is advantageous for the education, both for the students and the instructors.
