If you want to learn about how we've run various projects using AR, you can always check our some of our case studies on our site here: Midwest Immersive
Augmented Reality is definitely a breakthrough in education! You can now create much more immersive in-person experiences, give needed context to the environment around you, or provide extra information seamlessly. Imagine a class of middle school students walking into a factory tour with phones or headsets and being able to understand, visually through looking at their surroundings, how each competent of the factory operates as an interdependent system. Even walking through a zoo or museum and being able to see extra fun facts or information about the animals or art around you, or being able to see how something in a museum (like a dinosaur) looked like at sale when alive! I'm very hopeful about the future of AR in education at all levels i.e elementary, secondary, high school, college, graduate school etc
Learn about AR kit in order to utilize AR on IOS devices. Unity is also great for designing AR experiences. With our team, we use Tensorflow for deep learning when it comes to AR. It depends on how complex of an experience you want to create with AR... Do you want to use object or image recognition? Do you just want to make a cool AR Snapchat filter? You can create your own designs very easily to make custom AR Snapchat filters with their own software. What are you looking to create with AR?
