The Effect of Augmented Reality Use in Science Education on Attitude and Motivation

Mustafa SIRAKAYA, Didem ALSANCAK SIRAKAYA

Abstract


The purpose of this study is to determine the effect of augmented reality use
in science education on students’ attitudes and motivations. A quasi experimental, random matched design with pre-test – post-test and control group was used in the study. The study group was composed of 87 7th graders attending there separate classes of a state school. Research findings show that augmented reality has increased the motivation of the students towards science education. Another consequence of the research is that the augmented reality learning material has positively changed students’ attitudes toward science learning.
