Applying information technologies in the educational process is the main direction of modern education. However, "moving" information communication technologies to schools is the primary purpose of discussions held by pedagogical and scientific society as this is a very problematic field (Lamanauskas, 2006). Most of the researches show that the virtual learning environment help to achieve higher learning results. However, pupils' questioning in Lithuania, Germany, Romania, Malta and Czech (Lamanauskas, Vilkonis & Klangauskas, 2007; Lamanauskas & Vilkonis, 2007; Bilek, Zemanova & Turcani, 2007) showed that most of the respondents prefer real learning environment or combine real and virtual environments while learning natural sciences. The latest scientific research shows that along the real and/or virtual teaching/learning environment, a combined environment can also be acceptable. The introduced environment can be created using augmented reality technology (ART), i.e. augmenting real objects found in the environment and usual material visuals with virtual information in the real space. In Siauliai University, a pedagogical experiment was done, and it aims at establishing effective teaching/learning platform based on augmented reality technology (ARTP) influence upon the learning results. 110 pupils of the 7 th form of comprehensive school took part in the experiment. The analysis of the research data shows that pupils' achievement after use of ARTP in the experimental group significantly improved while completing some tasks. (Contains 1 footnote and 5 tables.)
