Abstract:Social media technology and corporate America are currently building an augmented reality (AR) dimension layered upon our everyday lives. A virtual world of augmented reality is being layered over advertisements, buildings, signs, clothes and more all over the world through the placement of indoor and outdoor tracking and the download of applications to your smartphones and tablets. 21st century activities such as device interaction, media management, gaming, and social networking are being combined with corporations to tag feeds to build “stories” among previously unconnected people. In physics, the term “fifth dimension,” is a hypothetical extra dimension beyond the usual three spatial dimensions and one time dimension of Relativity. The research suggests the transformative implications for 5th dimensional learning anywhere in the world are within our reach through the use of augmented reality. This paper discusses the current building of augmented reality blended with visual searches, facial recognition technology and real time data, and the inevitable arrival of the 5th dimension. It investigates the human clout or how to measure individual “spectrum” rights when your virtual encounters and identity are extracted and used to teach the world. The “Recognition-primed decision model” described as the learning that occurs through tacit knowledge gained through training, education and experience. Research on “situated cognition” or learning that is embedded into the social and physical context within which it will be used will also be explored.
