Abstract:


This study aimed to identify the attitudes of secondary school students towards AR applications and to investigate the change in these attitudes according to different variables. The study also aspired to determine the relationship between attitudes towards AR and achievement. General survey model was used in the study. The study group was composed of 54 7th graders attending there separate classes of a state school. In order to determine student attitudes towards AP applications in educational environments, students were first provided with the experience for 4 weeks (16 lessons). Research findings show that students have positive attitudes towards AR applications. Gender, ownership of personal computers and mobile devices were not found to change attitudes towards AR applications. While daily internet use was not found to affect AR attitudes, it was found that attitudes differed significantly according to frequency of playing computer games. Research findings show a meaningful relationship between AR attitudes and achievement.
