Augmented Reality in Edu competition
Australia’s schools are among the most technologically advanced in the world, such that proficient digital capabilities are considered an essential skill for teachers to be effective.
The School of Education’s unique eLearning Program assists pre-service teachers in developing cutting edge technological-pedagogical skills through a range of learning activities, workshops and competitions.
Among these is the Augmented Reality (AR) in Edu Comp, which focuses on the great potential that AR holds in ushering in a new era of immersive learning experiences. The competition invites School of Education students to creative innovative lesson plans and resource by using AR. This year’s winner is Zach Lamont, Bachelor of Teaching student, who has a passion for this cutting-edge technology.

"As a media student and aspiring teacher, I have a passion for innovating the use of technology within the classroom. By using AR as a pedagogical tool, teachers can engage students by immersing them in a new world without detaching them from the educational environment. I'm excited at the opportunity to use AR to create quality learning experiences in the future."Zach Lamont
