How Augmented Reality Visually Supports Students
The fourth theme in our AR Value series is how Augmented Reality Visually Supports Students.
Visualization of invisible concepts, abstract concepts, and events. How Augmented Reality Visually Supports Students
Ease of use for students and how AR affects laboratory material cost.
Furthermore, Wu, Lee, Chang, & Liang, found AR helps learners visualize abstract concepts (2013).
