Augmented Reality Capstone Plan Literature Review
This post reflects outlined themes that will be presented to the project audience. This is a summary of what themes will be used in this project. Augmented Reality Capstone Plan Literature Review.
Update 4/19/2019 – This original post is being expanded on our sister site Augmented Reality Based dot com, ARBased.com – links are being added over time. Theme one example completed. Leave a comment below. For consulting on any material on these sites visit vcmconsult.com
How may AR affect learner outcomes? Exploring the claimed areas including enhancing learning achievement, motivation, satisfaction, confidence, and spatial ability.
Research into how student attitude was affected, cognitive load and understanding.
One study, Harley, Poitras, Jarrell, Duffy, and Lajoie, 2016, found participants’ emotions influenced outcomes during their ‘underpowered’ experiment (Harley et al., 2016).
The researchers were not concerned about generalizing to other populations in this article.
Total participants totaled thirty-one students limited from one North American university.
How may AR affect pedagogical contributions such as enjoyment, level of engagement, interest for the student?
Explore collaborative opportunities, communication between student and professor.
Other contributors include self-learning, physical and virtual worlds, actually learn by doing, ‘student-centered technology’, ‘multisensory learning’, and ‘instant information retrieval. Furthermore, Chang, Chang, Hou, Sung, Chao, and Lee, 2014, found AR increases learning interest (Chang et al., 2014).
This example provided research to pedagogical contributions.
How may AR affect interaction by exploring opportunities for a student to student collaboration? In this theme, we will explore interactions for the student to the material as well as between student and teacher.
Furthermore, one study Kamarainen, Metcalf, Grotzer, Browne, Mazzuca, Tutwiler, and Dede, 2013, found AR technology promotes more interaction among students (Kamarainen et al., 2013).
Understanding these two sub-themes and exploring the interaction between student teacher will be researched.
How may AR affect other issues including, visualization of invisible concepts, abstract concepts, and events?
Ease of use for students and how AR affects laboratory material cost. Furthermore, according to Wu, Lee, Chang, and Liang, 2013, found AR helps learners visualize abstract concepts (Wu et al., 2013).
The two remaining sub-themes ‘abstract concepts’ and ‘events’ will be researched along with any additional ‘other’ category.
