The traditional printed textbooks and digital learning materials are taught separately to explore the difference of children’s learning motivation with the 5-point We attempt to understand the acceptance, purchasing willingness and factors considered of Augmented Reality(AR) through discussing the results of the questionnaire.
This study presents analysis and specific recommendations based on the results of the study, providing reference for teachers, industry/academic developers, sellers of children’s application, and researchers in future .
