Abstract

It has been shown in numerous studies that the application of Augmented Reality (AR) to teaching and learning is beneficial, but determining the reasons behind its effectiveness, and in particular the characteristics of students for whom an AR is best suited, can bring forth new opportunities to integrate adaptive instruction and AR in the future. Through a quasi-experimental research design, our study recruited 66 participants in an 8-week long AR-assisted learning activity, and lag sequential analysis was used to analyze participants' behavior in an AR learning environment. We found that AR was more effective in enhancing the learning gains in elementary school science of learners who prefer a Kinesthetic approach to learning. We hypothesize that these effects are due to the increase in opportunity for hands-on activities, effectively increasing learners' concentration and passion for learning.
