Reduce cognitive load with an augmented reality learning environment: discover how to use augmented reality to help students visualise organic mechanisms

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationFeatured article

Abstract

Students struggle to understand Johnstone’s triangle and part of the problem relates to cognitive load. A recent study looked at how we can use augmented reality as a teaching tool in the chemistry classroom to help solve this problem. High school students in Germany used the tool and answered questions about the cognitive load they experienced and their attitude towards the tool’s use to learn chemistry. The results were very positive. Find out how you can apply this in your own classroom.
