Augmented reality

Another trend to keep an eye on is employees using mobile phones for augmented reality experiences. Basically, when the phone is in a certain location, the phone’s camera will display an overlay with extra information.

This approach was used in the popular Pokemon Go game and has been used in museum experiences. In some cases, it’s similar to a scavenger hunt. An employee might trigger a lesson by being in a relevant location and have to use the information they see on their phone to perform a learning task. You might also use AR in a simulation-based approach as a group of employees collectively integrates information and makes further decisions.
