Technology in education can influence students to learn with enthusiasm and can motivate them, leading to an effective process of learning. Researchers have identified the problem that technology will create a passive learning process if the technology used does not promote critical thinking, meaning-making or metacognition. Since its introduction, augmented reality (AR) has been shown to have good potential in making the learning process more active, effective and meaningful. This is because its advanced technology enables users to interact with virtual and real-time applications and brings the natural experiences to the user. In addition, the merging of AR with education has recently attracted research attention because of its ability to allow students to be immersed in realistic experiences. Therefore, this thesis paper is based on the research that has been conducted on AR. The review describes the application of AR on primary education using individual “topic cards” for different topics of primary school syllabus. The review of the results of the research shows that, overall, AR technologies have a positive result and potentiality that can be adapted in education. The review also indicates the advantages and limitations of AR which could be addressed in future research.
