This session will describe and demonstrate the technology used in the Handheld Augmented Reality Project (HARP). Using GPS-enabled handheld computers, this project attempts to teach math and language arts content to middle and high school students. As students walk around a physical environment, they are tracked by an avatar on their handheld computer moving around a map of the students’ location. This avatar triggers characters and objects as the student moves around. This session will define Augmented reality, demonstrate the HARP technology, describe the HARP curricula development process, and describe preliminary results from testing the HARP augmented reality process using a pre-test/post-test control group evaluation design.
