This course introduces learners to the concept of Cultural Heritage, Storytelling, and explores how Augmented Reality (AR) can be used to create interactive learning experiences based on digitised cultural heritage assets.
Augmented reality uses digital technologies to bring interactive experiences to real-life physical spaces or items using digital devices such as smartphones or tablets
- In this presentation as part of Friday Frontiers, British Library Digital Curator Stella Wisdom discusses the challenges and surprises encountered in the process of curating the 'Digital Storytelling' exhibition: a physical exhibition using entirely digital resources.
- Learn how community-building projects can engage local stakeholders, pull insights from diverse perspectives, and influence urban redevelopment authorities. Hear state-of-the-art theories and approaches to sustainable heritage, with reflections from experienced architects, academics, and urban thinkers. Identify critical issues of urban gentrification, place-making, and the pressures faced by historic urban neighbourhoods in Southern Europe. See state-of-the-art technologies deployed for rapid 3D reconstruction, documentation, and urban co-design with non-experts. We specifically explore augmented reality as a possible solution to scalable public outreach.
- This video features Tamar Gordon, Professor of Anthropology at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, USA. In this video she discusses Mixed Reality and Social Engagement. Tamar talks about Augmented Reality as a tool that can make history come alive, while helping us to interpret cultural-historical environments and reflect upon our own experience and subject position within our own society.
