Abstract

As part of a recent change, Augmented Reality (AR) has filled engineering classrooms, being employed for various pedagogical purposes around the world. However, little is known about the different features and uses of this technology in Latin America. This Scoping Review asks how are educational AR systems designed, used and evaluated in the region, comparing this to the international literature. To address this question, we charted 36 conference papers and scientific articles, taking care of the quality gaps and methodological diversity within our sample. Our results show that, even though most converge on conventional research, design and pedagogical practices, engineering educators working at institutes are taking the lead of design, pedagogical and research innovation. Furthermore, we show that Latin-American literature distinctively reveals how teachers adapt to the particular contexts of teaching, and the special importance of the usually overlooked conference papers literature.
