Bojana Andjelković Mitrićeski

Position: AR - augmented reality in teaching

Bojana works in primary school as a geography teacher and has many years of experience working with children with special needs. She presented examples of good practice in Serbia and Europe and led workshops with the use of digital tools in teaching in Brussels, Ljubljana, Belgrade, Vidin, Warsaw and Niš. She is a certified teacher of National Geography, Microsoft teacher, Scientix and EDU ARTIC ambassador.

AR technology allows us to see elements that do not exist in real life with the application through the screen of a device, most often a mobile phone. These elements expand the reality around us, but only when we look at it through the screen. Applications such as A-class and Aurasma allow the recognition of concepts and topics from teaching in a customized way for each student. This way of working integrated into the teaching facilitates the progress of students who have learning difficulties. The advantage is that this form of work can be applied at home during the application of online teaching as well as under special working conditions when the teacher think it is possible.
