Augmented Reality in Education Research
Augmented Reality in Education 2022: Educator and Parent Perspectives
Augmented reality (AR) offers new and exciting ways for learners to interact and engage with subject material. That’s why we wanted to understand how educators are using this technology in the classroom, how students are using it at home, and find answers to questions like “What are the top benefits of AR?” and “What are the top concerns?”
To find those answers, we worked with Hanover Research to survey teachers, administrators, and parents. Here’s what we learned.
Preview Educator and Parent Perspectives on Augmented Reality
|Children who use AR use it very often–2-3 days a week or more|
|2 to 3 days a week||40%|
|Once a week||13%|
|Once every 2 to 3 weeks||3%|
|Once a month||2%|
|Less often than once a month||4%|
Q: How frequently does your child use AR? (n=387)
Student engagement is the greatest benefit of using AR in education according to both educators (78%) and parents (59%).
|Most educators that use AR use it often–at least once a week|
|2 to 3 days a week||44%|
|Once a week||16%|
|Once every 2 to 3 weeks||12%|
|Once a month||8%|
|Less often than once a month||5%|
Q: How frequently do you use AR for educational purposes? (n=146)
Because AR does not need to be used with special glasses or headsets, educators report that in school students commonly use AR with their laptops (66%) and tablets (55%)
