Technology in education can influence students to learn with enthusiasm and can motivate them, leading to an effective process of learning. Researchers have identified the problem that technology will create a passive learning process if the technology used does not promote critical
thinking, meaning-making or metacognition. Since its introduction, augmented reality (AR) has been shown to have good potential in making the learning process more active, effective and meaningful. This is because its advanced technology enables users to interact with virtual and real-time
applications and brings the natural experiences to the user. In addition, the merging of AR with education has recently attracted research attention because of its ability to allow students to be immersed in realistic experiences. Therefore, this thesis paper is based on the research that
has been conducted on AR. The review describes the application of AR on primary education using individual “topic cards” for different topics of primary school syllabus. The review of the results of the research shows that, overall, AR technologies have a positive result and potentiality
that can be adapted in education. The review also indicates the advantages and limitations of AR which could be addressed in future research.

For more than 30 years, the Electronic Imaging Symposium has been serving those in the broad community - from academia and industry - who work on imaging science and digital technologies. The breadth of the Symposium covers the entire imaging science ecosystem, from capture (sensors, camera) through image processing (image quality, color and appearance) to how we and our surrogate machines see and interpret images. Applications covered include augmented reality, autonomous vehicles, machine vision, data analysis, digital and mobile photography, security, virtual reality, and human vision. IS&T began sole sponsorship of the meeting in 2016. All papers presented at EIs 20+ conferences are open access.
Please note: For purposes of its Digital Library content, IS&T defines Open Access as papers that will be downloadable in their entirety for free in perpetuity. Copyright restrictions on papers vary; see individual paper for details.
