Abstract / Summary

Augmented reality is a field with a versatile range of applications used in many fields
including recreation and education. Continually developing technology spanning the last decade has
drastically improved the viability for augmented reality projects now that most of the population
possesses a mobile device capable of supporting the graphic rendering systems required for them.
Education in particular has benefited from these technological advances as there are now many
fields of research branching into how augmented reality can be used in schools. For the purposes of
Holocaust education however, there has been remarkable little research into how Augmented Reality
can be used to enhance its delivery or impact. The purpose of this study is to speculate regarding the
following questions: How is augmented reality currently being used to enhance history education?
Does the usage of augmented reality assist in developing long-term memories? Is augmented reality
capable of conveying the emotional weight of historical events? Will augmented reality be appropriate
for teaching a complex field such as the Holocaust? To address these, multiple studies have been
analysed for their research methodologies and how their findings may assist with the development of
Holocaust education.
