Abstract: Augmented reality (AR) can be a useful educational tool which allows the representation of concepts that are otherwise invisible and difficult to visualize. We designed an augmented reality tool (the Holoboard) for learning about circuits and voltage, and deployed it in a summer school course for students to use. The students were hesitant to use the tool for several reasons, but those who did had a positive experience and found the tool to be helpful. Overall, tools were used by students who had an independent approach to problem-solving, and students preferred tools that were easily accessible and did not disrupt their workflow. We conclude with suggestions to improve the Holoboard to tailor it to the needs of students.
