Title: ASD Augmented: Influencing pedagogical perspectives and Practices
Description: This project begins with the hypothesis that the emerging technology of Augmented Reality (AR) will influence the pedagogical perspectives and practices for students with ASD. Research studies indicate that students with autism choose majors in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) at higher rates than students in the general population. They are “looking for patterns, and in Science it is natural to look for patterns that reflect natural law”. The aim is to identify the impact of AR in concentration for students diagnosed with ASD.
