Abstract:One of the noticible difficulties for students in the Electromagnetic Physics Course in El Bosque University may be observed in laboratory practices during the interaction of students with the available computerized simulation tools. These computerized simulation tools only allow for the configuration of some variables for the basic animation of studied phenomena, putting aside the natural perspective of the mentioned phenomenon and complicating the learning process as the context in with they occur is dificult to observe by human perception.
The Augmented reality can improve this perception. This article describes our completed investigation of the effects of computerized educative material utilizing augmented reality and its relationship with the learning curve for electrical phenomenons presented in Gauss’ Law, Coulomb’s Law and the field of electricity in physics for night class students attending The Bosque University.
Keywords: Augmented Reality, Computerized Educative Material, Learning Curve, Physics.
