Augmented Reality (AR) is at the forefront of the debate on how to improve education with the use of new technologies. As Europe is set to become a global leader in VR and AR, Augmented Reality is considered to be one of the candidates for the education of the future.

ARETE aims to:

  • develop, integrate and disseminate interactive technology via AR methods and tools to create and connect existing digital systems, and to build a pan-European competitive ecosystem that supports fast dissemination of augmented learning content to a wide audience.
  • strengthen the research and industrial capacities in Europe to develop future interactive devices and content for education.
  • support the existing effort to seek opportunities offered by multi-user interactions with AR technologies in education.

From three pilot studies carried out in primary schools across Europe, ARETE collects baseline data in terms of user needs and education practices to inform the pedagogical content of the ARETE toolkit.
