Mobile Augmented Reality in the Backyard: Families’ Outdoor Spaces as Sites of Exploration about Pollinatorsde Vries, Erica ; Yotam Hod, Yotam ; Ahn, June (Ed.)
From the first iteration of a design-based research study with 16 families, we investigated at-home intergenerational exploration of pollinators and plants. The team developed a mobile augmented reality app focused on plant-pollinator interactions. We investigated how AR elements influence families’ learning in their backyards. This analysis informs the design of mobile augmented reality apps that are site-independent for families’ collaborative learning opportunities in outdoor, home-based settings.
