Abstract

The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of augmented reality laboratory on students' learning of science concepts. Two cases were implemented and examined, including learning of convex lens image forming for junior high school students and learning of electrochemistry concepts for senior high school students. The results revealed that (a) the use of augmented reality helped learners achieve better knowledge application performance and (b) students showed positive motivation toward science learning.
