Abstract

Scientific models play a vital role in science learning, representing major characteristics of scientific phenomena. A useful visualization of models that matches target concepts to source objects can facilitate students' learning of abstract and complex structures of chemical elements and compounds. This report will show the importance of visualization and innovative technology (such as augmented reality), which has the potential of supporting students' learning of stereochemistry and interactions among molecules. Examples (including organic compounds, chemical elements of 1A and 7A in the periodic table, water polarity, and carbon nanotube) are drawn to illustrate the potential use of augmented reality in chemistry instruction.
