Perceptions of the Effects of Augmented Reality in the Classroom
Mundy, Marie-Anne; Hernandez, Jose; Green, Marybeth
Journal of Instructional Pedagogies, v22 May 2019
Augmented reality continues to be lauded as a disruptive innovation in education. This research examines the perspectives of AR using educators who are Innovators and First Adopters in Roger's Diffusion of Innovation Scale. Attitudes towards AR were examined through a survey that included Likert-scale items and open-ended qualitative items. Results appear to show that educators were largely using downloadable AR apps, but found them highly engaging and enjoyable with students. A few teachers indicated that they or their students were also creating AR using a variety of platforms. Inferential analyses were also employed, but found no differences between groups. Issues and challenges in using AR are also discussed.
