Abstract

The aim of this study was to evaluate the opinions of students in learning physics and physics teachers in teaching physics during using augmented reality environments. In this study, focus group interview technique was used as a qualitative research technique. Semi-structured interview technique was used as a method of data collection. This study was executed with three physic teachers and 8 students of a secondary school at Trabzon in 2010-2011 school years. As a result, using augmented reality in teaching magnetism has benefits on behalf of the magnetic field by providing the visualization. In learning side, it helps the student for better understanding the events of the environment and make able to have more better realistic application. Through the obtained results, it is suggested that augmented reality should be used in other subjects of science which are difficult to comprehend.
