Descrizione del progetto
Descrivete il vostro progetto con una frase (max. 500 caratteri): 
Augmented reality as learning environment - interactive collaborative elearning with "alive" learning materials.
Riassunto del progetto (max. 2000 caratteri): 
With using augmented reality apps, there are no borders for learning contexts or environment. Augmented reality allows to combine and connect real-life scenarios and objects with digital environment perceptions. Our project starts in autumn 2014, when project group students started to learn augmented reality apps - Aurasma and Collaraps. Then project-group students organized and aura-exhibition-workshop for younger school-mates (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jQ6qI2kRX2Y) about using mobile apps and making auras. In this way older students are working as menthors for youngers. The next step was organizing an exhibition of augmented reality objects made by students from 1st to 3rd grade. Next step in our project was to change it into an international project and we started common project with school on Faroe Islands (Denmark). We are using online workshops and Skype conferences as working tools and we are planned also student exchanges. Students will give an opportunity to practice their skills in real-life situation and practice new pedagogical methods: project-based, problem-based, inquiry-based, game-based learning, flipped classroom etc. Olders students can be in the role of menthors to teach youngers for innovative ways of using digital media. After common learning students will organize activities (exhibitons, workshops, conferences) to other students to show what they have learned. All materials, made during project, will use educational cloud services to made materials visible.

Obiettivi ed elementi di innovazione
Quali sono gli obiettivi specifici del progetto e quali sono i mezzi usati per raggiungerli?: 
Using augmented reality in learning helps develop equal opportunities in inclusive education and to promote creativity and innovation in education. Teachers and students are working as partners, advanced students are involved as menthors, all participants have good opportunity to try new digital tools for learning and teaching and to practice new pedagogical methods: project-, inquiry-, problem-, game-based learning, flipped classroom, BYOD-lessons etc. During projects only free apps are used (Aurasma, Collarapp etc), participants can use their own devices, but for workshops it is possible to use equipment at school. We will use Skype conferences for preparatory work, also social media for groupworks (Facebook groups, Edmodo),and different mobile apps (EdSelf etc), educational resource cloud services will be used.
Risultati
Ad oggi, quali sono i risultati raggiunti dal vostro progetto e quali sono i criteri per valutarli? (max. 2000 caratteri): 
Participating schools or groups are making during project learning materials to about different topics and subjects. Itis possible to integrate project-work with school-curricula, motivate informal learning and participation in local community. During each activity rapid response (voting) systems (Polleverywhere, Mentimeter, Kahoot etc) will be used. After learnig activities participants have possibility to demonstrate their knowledges in local community, using world-cafe type informal conferences to promote active citizenship. All materials collected and used during project will be available in open-source environments (Udutu Learn etc) for teachers as pedagogical resource, but also for informal learning and also for active particiapation in local community.
Quanti utenti interagiscono con il progetto mensilmente e in quale modo? (max. 500 caratteri): 
We have started the project between two school in Estonia and Faroe islands (from both schools 35 students) - and as students can be the project-managers also, maximum number of participants is not expired. We will use Skype conferences for preparatory work, also social media for groupworks (Facebook groups, Edmodo),and different mobile apps (EdSelf etc), educational resource cloud services will be used.

Che cosa possono imparare altri soggetti dal vostro progetto? (max. 1500 caratteri): 
All participants have good opportunity to try new digital tools for learning and teaching and to practice new pedagogical methods: project-, inquiry-, problem-, game-based learning, flipped classroom, BYOD-lessons, real-life based learning scenarios by using augmented reality.

Si
Informazioni aggiuntive
Ostacoli e soluzioni (max. 1000 caratteri): 
Project is based on practical using own digital devices (smartphones, iPads, tablets etc) - ifdevices are different or using different software - it means that more attention must be paid for instructional materials, video-tutorials etc. Of course ther can be some language differences, but it is also good change to learn more.
Progetti per il futuro e aspettative (max. 750 caratteri): 
Through similar projects it is possible for particiapating groups to share similar problems and similar visions for future. Participants can compare attitudes and visions between citizens of local communities and will try to find ways how can young people help to solve problems. Augmented reality can be as sample platform for simulations and for possible solutions.
