Collaborative learning is an interactive learning methodology rooted in Lev Vygotsky's concept zone of proximal development. Collaborative learning helps the students to achieve tasks with active knowledge sharing and discussions. Collaborative learning has already implemented in many schools within the classroom learning. Collaborative learning helps the students to attain various skill sets that include critical thinking, effective communication, idea development, presentation skills, and creativity.
Augmented Reality enables students to interact with the subjects much deeper. Development of higher-level thinking can achieve through the interactive learning system that combines digital objects and the real world. Moreover, it can make group-learning fun and exciting. The facilitators can decide the type and criteria for the AR contents based on the age group of the students, learning capability of the group, and topics. Individual participation in a collaborative space creates a space for higher level learning.
The AR-enabled Collaborative Learning model can boost the thinking level and learning efficiency for the students in both school and University level systems. Students can actively be involved in solving a problem or research with the aid of augmented reality to learn and understand the concepts completely. AR-enabled Collaborative learning can improve individual participation in group learning. AR-enabled Collaborative learning can improve individual participation in group learning. It can eliminate socio-economic discriminations within students.
