Abstract

The primary purpose of the progressing international scientific project ARiSE – is to test pedagogical effectiveness introducing augmented reality (AR) into the classroom and creating remote collaboration between classes around the AR display systems. ARiSE will develop an AR platform and associated pedagogical use cases, enabling teachers to promote, with a moderate effort, new teaching practices for teaching scientific and cultural content in primary and secondary school. The aim of the project is to offer to the group of students the possibility of ‘playing’ with virtual objects and thereby to perform learning by doing instead of learning by reading.
The research was carried out at Siauliai University in Lithuania. 38 respondents - experts assisting students with special educational needs in teaching/learning (psychologists, speech therapy experts, special pedagogues and the specialists from the education department) took part in this research. The focus groups were formed requiring indiscretion i.e. the group members were not allowed to make any specific impact on one another (in terms of work place, competence and social status). Thus, 6 groups of respondents were set up.
