Students suffer academic procrastination while dealing with frequent deadlines and working under pressure. This causes to delay their coursework and may affect their academic progress, despite feeling worse. Triggering students' motivation, like introducing technologies, helps to reduce procrastination. In this context, Augmented Reality has been used before to stimulate learning in Engineering Education, and this study reveals that introducing this technology has also a visible effect in reducing academic procrastination. It was observed that this reduction was visible even after two different groups of students had worked in several tasks before introducing AR. However, it is not possible to conclude if the observed reduction is just caused by a novelty effect and cannot be maintained over time, or if it is linked to a more intrinsic attraction that students perceive for modern technologies that helps to reduce academic procrastination more consistently.
