The Application of Augmented Reality to the Education of Chemistry – Take the Course of Nature Science in Junior High School as an Example
In the modern society featuring developed information technology, the integration of technology into various aspects of life has been normal. Studies regarding the integration of technology into educational scenarios have also flourished. This study will integrate the augmented reality (AR) technology into the teaching of natural science for the eighth grade of middle school. This technology assists learners in learning about chemical units, such as “mole number”, “atomic weight” and “molecular weight”, to understand the composition and characteristics of matter. The concepts of this unit are relatively abstract, so the characteristics of AR combined with learners’ life experience can present the world of microscopic particles, which are invisible to the naked eye and complex and abstract, enabling learners to establish correct rules and imagine the microscopic particle world properly and paving a smooth way for future chemistry learning.
