Creating Reality-based Educational Experiences using Augmented Technology Enhancements

Creating Reality-based Educational Experiences using Augmented Technology Enhancements

Nursing and clinical education is ever evolving.  With nursing student numbers increasing, the provision of education requires innovation and creativity.  One method to enhance classroom learning incorporates Augmented Reality into classroom lectures and activities.  Through the use of the CREEATE (Creating Reality Based Educational Endeavors using Augmented Technology Enhancements) model videos, diagnostic images and laboratory reports are paired with static images to bring lectures and case scenarios to life.
