Heritage education experience supported in augmented reality





Heritage education, Framework for heritage education, Augmented reality


Heritage Education is a process that traditionally takes place within the classroom, where the teacher transmits some knowledge to the student; however, new ways have been implemented to develop Heritage Education processes supported by different technologies where Augmented Reality is included. This paper describes the process of implementing the “Framework for Heritage Education supported by Augmented Reality”, which proposes guidelines for the development of technology solutions based on Augmented Reality in the context of Heritage Education, through the deployment of an application called “Social Heritage ”developed under the guidelines of this Framework. The paper describes the implementation process of the Framework in the city of Cartagena - Colombia and the validation process with the end users. For the evaluation of the experience, the motivation test was used for the instructional design that measures the categories: Attention, Relevance, Confidence and Satisfaction. This test was applied to a group of students and a group of tourists. The validation results show that the use of augmented reality motivated both students and tourists in the development of heritage education processes. This allowed us to conclude that augmented reality technology is pertinent when promoting learning processes in the context of heritage.
