Education icon, disabled. A purple mortarboard.

The research question being investigated is “can augmented reality(AR) and physical activity(PA) be combined using technology to create a beneficial learning experience for students with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder(ADHD)?” An educational learning app that uses AR and PA is under development. This semester a user study using the app will be carried out to aid progress in answering the question being investigated. Our goal is that this app would become a popular way for students with ADHD to learn new material or to contribute to a larger project in this field of study.
