The iPEAR (Inclusive Peer Learning with Augmented Reality Apps) is european project KA2 , with 36 months duration and 336,536 budget. The project combines collaborative expertise of technology-enhanced learning researchers, computer scientists, and educators to build a strategic partnership to streamline the adoption of Augmented Reality (AR) technology in educational practice.
The project will create innovative open educational resources for educators that help implement and integrate active and collaborative learning pedagogical approaches supported by AR. This will enrich the teaching practice and support inclusive, peer to peer learning relevant to the requirements and preferences of the students.
The main objectives of the project are to:
