Abstract

Recent research on Augmented Reality (AR) gaming suggests that place-based AR games embedded in larger curricular units provide contexts and scaffolding for developing students' scientific argumentation skills. This project explores the potential of one specific place-based AR gaming unit, Sick at South Shore Beach, to develop students' argumentation skills and increase their understanding of the role that social interactions play in the development of scientific arguments.
