Abstract

This paper presented about the augmented reality learning application for kindergarten education. This paper explains how the learning application is developed and used to increase the motivation and engagement of the children. Education is transferred from traditional way of learning to the use of immersive, interactive technologies. Game based learning environment is very useful for children to learn very efficiently. Marker based Augmented Learning application is developed using Unity 3D game engine and hardware used for viewing is mobile phone. Augmented learning application consists of two main courses - English, Mathematics. In every course, application is developed in two modes - learn and play. After learning each module, children are tested using the play mode. Children are able to interact with the 3D objects and animations, audio visuals are used for enhancement.
