The purpose of this study was to document how teachers and students describe and comprehend the ways in which participating in an augmented reality (AR) simulation aids or hinders teaching and learning. Like the multi-user virtual environment (MUVE) interface that underlies Internet games, AR is a good medium for immersive collaborative simulation, but has different strengths and limitations than MUVEs. Within a design-based research project, the researchers conducted multiple qualitative case… 
Augmented Reality Teaching and Learning
TLDR
Research findings about AR in formal and informal learning environments are summarized, with an emphasis on the affordances and limitations associated with AR as it relates to teaching, learning, and instructional design.
A design-based approach to augmented reality location-based activities: Investigating immersion in relation to student learning
TLDR
A design-based research study with 11th grade students finds that the students who participated in the second iteration reported being more immersed in the AR activity, provided explanations of higher quality and managed to solve the problem-based case.
Application of the ubiquitous game with augmented reality in Primary Education
TLDR
The conclusion is that the dynamic activities managed in the intervention, which made use of augmented reality and localization, benefit teaching-learning processes, and encourage innovation and improvement through educational technology.
