Abstract: Augmented Reality (AR) has been a fashionable choice for educational initiatives for more than a decade, and has been seen as a potentially revolutionary technology for education How close is AR technology to being useful in the classroom, though? This technology, which overlays virtual information on the physical environment through the use of a hardware interface, has seen a rapid growth in terms of the number of mobile apps that have been designed to leverage its capabilities The usefulness of these apps has never truly been explored in any systematic way, though This session will focus on laying out the state of the educational AR landscape, with specific focus on providing context for the features of the various apps, their functionality and their relative benefits
