Abstract

This research examines how Tree Investigators supported families' science learning with mobile devices. Researchers coded videorecords of families at an Arboretum to understand how augmented reality elements influenced science talk related to observation and explanations about tree biodiversity. Findings suggested that augmented images that provided contrastive cases allowed for families to engage in observations and explanations as demonstrated by high levels of perceptual talk (such as describing and identifying).
