Teacher Candidates' opinions about Augmented Reality as a supplemental educational tool
Abstract: As an innovative technology, augmented reality (AR) has gained much attention in recent years. AR technology superimposes digitally simulated information on a physical environment, which can facilitate an immersive, embodied learning experience. Despite the potential of AR, there has been relatively little integration of AR into the classroom. The purpose of this work-in-progress pilot study is to examine the acceptance and intentional use of AR technology by teacher candidates and their opinions of AR as a supplemental educational tool. A system usability approach as well as the threshold concepts framework were used in the study. Based on the participants' answers, research data has been analyzed and discussed.
