Abstract Title: Smartglasses in STEM laboratory courses – the augmented thermal flux experiment
Abstract: Realizing augmented reality (AR) learning scenarios with see-through smartglasses creates a wearable educational technology providing active access to various additional information without distracting from the physical interaction with the reality.
By displaying information directly in the user's field of view, the combination of real world and virtual objects creates a learning environment that enables students to evaluate their own measurements in more detail, to draw conclusions for further investigations or functional correlations between physical quantities.
In this contribution we present an augmented version of a standard experiment on heat conduction in metals, using physical data from external sensors for analyzing and displaying physical phenomena in real-time. We describe the design, material and methods as well as results of a first pilot study analysing the effects of learning with this tools in introductory STEM laboratories.
