How will we engage the next generation of learners-the A (ALPHA )generation? In aviation specific tasks such as maintenance, inspections, and air traffic control and aircraft operation require an understanding of several interrelated components requiring practice and immersion. Augmented reality (AR) is useful to engage, train and immerse the next generation of learners in technology driven education to make the information easier to understand and engage the student.
