Abstract: This preliminary study aimed to explore the impact of using Augmented Reality (AR) technology as a scaffolding tool on senior high school students’ learning of geometry. Participants’ learning performance and motivation toward learning of geometry were examined. In this study, the AR-based learning scaffolds delivered via a tablet PC were implemented in contrast with the paper-based cubical diagram. The results suggested that (a) the AR group performed better than the cubical diagram group on learning performance; and (b) the AR group also revealed higher degree of motivation than the cubical diagram group in the aspects of intrinsic motivation, extrinsic motivation, ...
