Although augmented reality (AR) has gained much research attention in recent years, the term AR was given different meanings by varying researchers. In this article, we first provide an overview of definitions, taxonomies, and technologies of AR. We argue that viewing AR as a concept rather than a type of technology would be more productive for educators, researchers, and designers. Then we identify certain features and affordances of AR systems and applications. Yet, these compelling features… Expand
Implementing Augmented Reality in the Classroom
TLDR
A conceptual definition of AR is identified that can be easily applied across contexts and then several guidelines for instructors looking to implement AR learning experiences at a classroom level are outlined. Expand
Benefits of Augmented Reality in Educational Environments - A Systematic Literature Review
TLDR
It is indicated that specific directions of AR applications are more likely to lead to certain benefits such as increased motivation, and future research is needed to investigate the cau- sality between benefits and directions ofAR in more detail. Expand
A Review of Usability Evaluation Techniques for Augmented Reality Systems in Education
Augmented Reality (AR) converts a gigantic amount of data and analytics into images and/or animations that are overlaid into the real scene. The emerging technology of AR has been investigated forExpand
POTENTIAL OF AUGMENTED REALITY IN SCIENCES EDUCATION A LITERATURE REVIEW
TLDR
The AR-sci framework for planning, development and evaluation of AR resources for science education is one of several frameworks presented in this article that show potential in regard to help students with among others things abstraction of science concepts. Expand
An Augmented-Reality-Based Concept Map to Support Mobile Learning for Science
Computer hardware and mobile devices have developed rapidly in recent years, and augmented reality (AR) technology has been increasingly applied in mobile learning. Although instructional ARExpand
Collaborative Augmented Reality in Engineering Education
A continuous trend in education is the use of new technologies like Augmented Reality (AR). These technologies are assumed to make teaching and learning processes more hands-on and more tangible,Expand
Affordances and Pedagogical Implications of Augmented Reality (AR)-Integrated Language Learning

Advantages and challenges associated with augmented reality for education: A systematic review of the literature
Abstract This study presents a systematic review of the literature on augmented reality (AR) used in educational settings. We consider factors such as publication year, learner type (e.g., K-12,Expand
Augmented Reality to Facilitate a Conceptual Understanding of Statics in Vocational Education
TLDR
The analysis of apprentices’ performance and their gaze behaviors highlighted the absence of clear advantages in exploring statics through manipulation, and showed that the manipulation might prevent students from noticing aspects relevant for solving statics problems. Expand

“Making it real”: exploring the potential of augmented reality for teaching primary school science
TLDR
Analysis of teacher–child dialogue in a comparative study between use of an AR virtual mirror interface and more traditional science teaching methods for 10-year-old children revealed that the children using AR were less engaged than those using traditional resources. Expand
Integrating a mobile augmented reality activity to contextualize student learning of a socioscientific issue
TLDR
AR could leverage students’ learning of SSI because it could enhance their senses of presence, immediacy and immersion and situate learning in authentic environments that may in turn result in students making more informed decisions considering all environmental-related factors. Expand
Affordances and Limitations of Immersive Participatory Augmented Reality Simulations for Teaching and Learning
TLDR
Teachers and students reported that the technology-mediated narrative and the interactive, situated, collaborative problem solving affordances of the AR simulation were highly engaging, especially among students who had previously presented behavioral and academic challenges for the teachers. Expand
Mixed reality classroom: learning from entertainment
TLDR
A MR classroom developed for a local primary school in Singapore is introduced, and there is little known work carried out to understand students' acceptance of the MR technology for learning, and the factors pertinent to influence their intention to use it. Expand
Human factors and qualitative pedagogical evaluation of a mobile augmented reality system for science education used by learners with physical disabilities
TLDR
The main focus of the paper is on highlighting the human factors issues and challenges, in terms of wearability and technology acceptance, while elaborating on some qualitative aspects of the pedagogical effectiveness of the instructional medium that AR technology offers for this group of learners. Expand
Augmented Reality for the Improvement of Remote Laboratories: An Augmented Remote Laboratory
TLDR
The effectiveness of this methodology for remote laboratory work is evaluated by comparing it to practical sessions in the laboratory at the university itself with the same group of students, and the results show that the use of ARL improves student outcomes. Expand
Augmented Reality Simulations on Handheld Computers
TLDR
It is argued that Environmental Detectives is 1 model for helping students understand the socially situated nature of scientific practice, whereby inquiry is a process of balancing and managing resources, combining multiple data sources, and forming and revising hypotheses in situ. Expand
Environmental Detectives—the development of an augmented reality platform for environmental simulations
TLDR
A development process in creating a development platform for augmented reality games that draws from rapid prototyping, learner-centered software, and contemporary game design methodologies is described and an approach to designing educational software on emerging technology platforms is articulate.
