Physics video experiences and augmented reality for schools

    I am writing this post in anticipation of the launch of our second project, entitled “Simple Physics”. The essence of the project is quite simple:

    1. to create high-quality and, most importantly, videos corresponding to the spirit of the time with experiments for the entire school physics course;
    2. create a complete set of virtual exhibits for experiments with which you can contact, including through augmented reality.

    Exactly one year ago, we launched our first crowdfunding project to produce books for children with exciting experiences. The project collected 2 times more than planned. It was decided to publish two books at once, which we did . How the project developed and how it feels now I describe in detail on Habré.

    To finance the project "Simple Physics" I also think to turn to crowdfunding. There is one big plus in this: everything develops organically and there is no pressure from the side of “interested” persons. By the word “interested” in the case of the release of books I mean publishers, and with “Simple Physics” I mean the Department of Education or other government bodies. The project will be regulated by the consumers of the product themselves: teachers, students and their parents. It seems to me that this is the most progressive path that could have been imagined.

    Video experiences

    Here are just a few ideas on how to use the resulting video for the benefit:
    Video Experiments in Physics
    • For electronic textbooks. Obviously, the education system is moving towards electronic textbooks. To create such - the procedure is quite simple: sooner or later, publishers will release new versions of interactive electronic textbooks. And by that time we will have a complete selection of quality shot videos for the entire course. Take and use!
    • For demonstration in the lesson. Now more and more often classes are equipped with video projectors. It is enough for the teacher to go to the site, download the necessary experiments and start the video during the lesson.
    • During the preparation of homework. While working on his homework, the student can go to YouTube, select the desired video, view experiences on the topic and refresh the memory of the material.
    • For children who cannot attend school. For those children who are not able to attend school, video experiences will help them to see the school physics course “live”.

    Virtual Interactive Exhibits

    Virtual exhibits - Augmented Reality
    • Virtual exhibits on the walls of the classroom. If you place exhibits in each class that you can twist and switch, I’m sure it will be easier to interest the child’s physics. Such exhibits can be placed on the walls of the classroom in the form of cute posters, pointing at which the camera of a smartphone or tablet, we get quite a real exhibit. And, most importantly, children will “play” with pleasure.
    • We repeat the experiments at home. By pointing the same smartphone to the page of an existing textbook, you can revive the picture from it or on the book page to watch a video experiment on the topic. This will help encourage the student to pick up the textbook with great pleasure.
    • Interactive for electronic textbooks. To turn an electronic textbook into an interactive product, you can embed such models there. Text, illustrations, video experiences and interactive exhibits - all in one textbook.

    It is very necessary to receive feedback, especially from readers of Habr. Well, for additional ideas and constructiveness - additional respect!
