GOMEZ GARCIA, Gerardo; RODRIGUEZ JIMENEZ, Carmen  and  MARIN MARIN, José Antonio. The transcendence of Augmented Reality in student motivation. A systematic review and meta-analysis. Alteridad [online]. 2020, vol.15, n.1, pp.36-46. ISSN 1390-8642.

The arrival of information and communication technologies (ICTs) in the education system has meant that many new resources of great didactic interest have reached the classroom. This is the case of Augmented Reality, a technology that has become popular due to its ability to combine virtual and real elements at the same time. This work has attempted to investigate the scientific literature to see if the application of Augmented Reality in the classroom promotes a motivational improvement in the student body of the various educational stages. For this purpose, the methodology corresponding to the systematic reviews and meta-analysis proposed by the PRISMA declaration was used, taking as data source the databases Scopus and Web of Science. A total of nine quasi-experimental methodologies were analysed around the measurement of the motivation variable. The results elucidated a favourable diagnosis to the experimental groups, so it could be inferred that experimentation in the classroom with Augmented Reality motivates the student body of different educational stages. Nevertheless, it is necessary to carry out a greater number of experiences with Augmented Reality in the classrooms in order to be able to establish an opinion around a more solid body of scientific work.

Keywords : Augmented Reality; motivation; emerging technologies; systematic review; meta-analysis; education.
