Abstract


This paper presents the framework for developing a Mobile Augmented Reality (MAR) for learning Chemical Bonds, which is believed to reduce misconceptions among the students. Misconceptions always occur in classrooms, especially in science subject’s which consist of abstract concepts. It is very important that these misconceptions be reduced, because they may affect the student’s understandings of topics they have learned about. These may interfere with the student’s education, and may also affect the student’s performances afterwards. Visualization is one key approach that has been proven to help when seeking to improve the understanding of students, which has consequently led to a reduction in misconceptions. There are many technologies that have been integrated within education, and that show strong potential for producing visualizations. One of the recent popular technologies that have the potential for visualization is Mobile Augmented Reality. Mobile Augmented Reality has the ability to visualize abstract concepts through 3D images
