Our Augmented Reality resources
This page will explain our Augmented Reality resources. Augmented Reality is where you bring something into your reality using a smartphone or tablet. It allows you to interact with objects and environments. You can also watch characters interact on the table or in life-size around you. Augmented Reality has the power to inform in a deeper way than conversation and just reading texts.
Digital technology is a great tool to communicate a message or a theme and we have created a set of interactive Bible based activities and everyday life faith stories that can be accessed on your smartphone using Augmented Reality. These can be used within RE lessons, Chaplaincy spaces, prayer spaces, youth groups, residentials, around the table at home and as a personal devotion.
We’d like to invite you to download a sample of 2 Augmented Reality activities which we have created. These can be found by clicking the sample button. Our plan is to continue creating new digital resources. To download the MGAR app effectively, you will need to use wifi.
How to use our Augmented Reality apps.
Our new Augmented Reality app called MGAR allows young people and youth leaders to explore a range of experiences. These experiences help the user to explore faith, mission and evangelism and have been designed to be used with children and young people in a range of settings including churches and schools.
Our hope is that this resource will help children and young people discover afresh an understanding of the Christian faith as well as see many Bible stories come alive in front of them.
We want to help the Church grow in confidence in using digital technology as we believe this will engage with a generation of young people who love to use digital innovation as part of their daily life.
Steps to help you use our AR activities that are available through the MGAR app:
– Download our app by searching MG AR
