In this paper, an innovative teaching model to reinforce the teaching performance of teachers and the learning performance is proposed. Based on the digital image processing courses, an interactive teaching method containing immediate image retrieval, visual analysis and processing, imaging control, theoretical narration, and the extensive applications using AR technology and wearable devices is designed. This method converts the mode from teacher’s traditional theoretical lectures and the student’s passive learning behaviors into immediate and dynamic operations, immersive observations; changing combinations; and bi-directional interactions, exchanges, and discussions. It is expected that this method can improve student’s interest and motivation in learning and help them comprehensively understand the abstract concepts of course content and technology theories, as well as the skill in practical application, through real-time and immersive surrounding observations and interactive interface operations, thereby can enhance the learning performance.
