Abstract: In this paper, we report on a design based experiment on a mixed reality (an augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR)) application, called CI Spy. CI Spy was designed as a unit of instruction within a locally developed ambitious 5th grade curriculum, entitled My Place in Space and Time, to investigate a forgotten (hidden) local history through the derelict historic site of a former African American school, the Christiansburg Institute (CI).
