about the project

Typical classes are based on knowledge transfer in form of lectures among a large group. Students learn dry facts, even if they are based on case studies, and lack the opportunity to learn by doing and being exposed to real workplaces. Classroom has become a comfort zone, a place where help and assistance is offered, one that is not present in a real environment. Only practicing a variety of real time interactions allows future graduates to enter the labour market with an adequate skill set. The above mentioned factors manifest in deficiencies in soft skills and practice of graduates and cause inability to properly react to the challenges at future workplace. Responding to above mentioned needs, we would like to enrich study programmes of all partners by implementing an innovative method for teaching and learning soft management skills based on augmented reality (AR). We believe that applying AR as a part of existing curriculum, will allow to achieve the main goal of this project, which is to improving the quality and efficiency of higher education as well as qualifications and competencies of students.
This project involves three target groups: students, academics and businesses.

outputs

The main output of ATOMIC project is an interactive AR simulation dedicated for enhancing training of future managerial staff. It will allow the students to gather both knowledge and experience. The main intention behind creation of such a tool is development of soft skills such as team work, collaboration, communication, self and group motivation, creativity, time management. The AR simulation will provide an will provide an attractive and engaging presentation artificial environment in which exercises can be performed. Additionally, it will be possible to use the application from different locations removing the necessity of users colocation distance learning.

The application will contain two types of exercises focusing on Lean Management and Health and Safety at Work. For both cases separate scenarios will be developed and incorporated into the application as an AR simulation.
