With mobile handheld devices becoming more readily available within classrooms, the once distant possibility of implementing augmented reality (AR) within the K-12 classroom is no longer. Augmented reality technology, when used as a tool to augment intentionally designed lessons, has the possibility to enhance peer-to-peer communication, collaboration, and student creativity. However, teachers are finding it increasingly difficult to implement augmented reality within their classrooms and research shows that K-12 educators are lacking the necessary support and information for augmented reality implementation. was designed to raise awareness of the benefits of augmented reality as a teaching tool and provide supplementary lesson plans, materials, resources, and research that incorporates augmented reality technology to help guide digital media educators and other K-12 teachers toward determining the best approach to implement augmented reality into their classrooms.
