Using Augmented Reality to Teach and Learn Biochemistry
Vega Garzón, Juan Carlos; Magrini, Marcio Luiz; Galembeck, Eduardo
Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, v45 n5 p417-420 Sep-Oct 2017
Understanding metabolism and metabolic pathways constitutes one of the central aims for students of biological sciences. Learning metabolic pathways should be focused on the understanding of general concepts and core principles. New technologies such Augmented Reality (AR) have shown potential to improve assimilation of biochemistry abstract concepts because students can manipulate 3D molecules in real time. Here we describe an application named Augmented Reality Metabolic Pathways (ARMET), which allowed students to visualize the 3D molecular structure of substrates and products, thus perceiving changes in each molecule. The structural modification of molecules shows students the flow and exchange of compounds and energy through metabolism.
