Educating Spatial Intelligence in Augmented Reality
Research project in the area of Virtual and Augmented Reality.
Keywords: Spatial Abilities, Augmented Reality, Studierstube, Construct3D.
About this Project
Spatial abilities present an important component of human intelligence. Many studies have shown that spatial abilities can be improved by well-designed trainings. Geometry education has proven as one powerful means of improving these skills; recently, a number of training studies have shown the usefulness of virtual reality (VR) in training spatial ability. However, little to no work has been done towards systematic development of VR applications for practical education purposes in this field.
This project aims to introduce Augmented Reality (AR), a technology closely related to VR, to mathematics and geometry education. A comprehensive evaluation study will be conducted in order to study the general and differential effects of the training with Construct3D on several components of spatial ability.
