Society for Information Technology & Teacher Education International Conference 2004 (2004) pp. 4637–4642
During the late 1990s, The Franklin Institute Science Museum recognized a synergistic opportunity within the science education reform culture. School districts were beginning to use research-based science activity kits as the cornerstone of their K...
Augmented hands-on: An evaluation of the impact of augmented reality technology on informal science learning behavior
(2011) pp. 1–145
This evaluative comparison study was designed to determine the extent to which the application of augmented reality technology increases realization of a hands-on exhibit device's intent and how augmented reality technology might influence family...
Augmented Reality in the Science Museum: Lessons Learned in Scaffolding for Conceptual and Cognitive Learning
International Association for Development of the Information Society (IADIS) International Conference on Cognition and Exploratory Learning in Digital Age (CELDA) 2012 (October 2012)
This research follows on previous studies that investigated how digitally augmented devices and knowledge scaffolds enhance learning in a science museum. We investigated what combination of scaffolds could be used in conjunction with the unique...
International Journal of Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning Vol. 7, No. 4 (December 2012) pp. 519–541
Although learning science in informal non-school environments has shown great promise in terms of increasing interest and engagement, few studies have systematically investigated and produced evidence of improved conceptual knowledge and cognitive...
How Augmented Reality, Textual, and Collaborative Scaffolds Work Synergistically to Improve Learning in a Science Museum
