During this time, children must explore and learn through daily life. The majority of children's teaching materials in Taiwan are currently written, which may lead to a lack of solid concepts regarding the physical appearances of objects. Therefore, this study used augmented reality to present a three dimensional appearance for the creation of a series of children's teaching materials. These were used to investigate the differences in six- and seven-year-old children's ability to describe physical appearances before and after using augmented reality materials. This study was divided into "problem verification," "materials production," and "results assessment" phases. The problem verification phase aimed to understand the current situation of child education and examine differences in children's ability to describe after using picture-based materials and video-based materials to establish this study topic. During the materials production phase, a series of augmented reality and six-sided image teaching materials. These materials were then used during the results assessment phase to investigate differences in cognitive ability regarding physical appearances and descriptive ability in children who used the image teaching materials, children who used the augmented reality teaching materials, and children who did not used these materials.
Results showed that after using the augmented reality teaching materials, children (1) had an increased vocabulary when describing physical appearances, (2) used more concrete "representational vocabulary" or "location vocabulary" when describing physical appearance, (3) could encircle and observe the entire three dimensional model to understand the changes to the appearance when changing the angle of perspective, (4) could zoom in to observe minute details and zoom out to observe the entire contour of the model, and (5) had improved desire to learn and learning outcomes.Therefore, incorporation of augmented reality into childhood education can effectively help children improve their cognitive and descriptive abilities.
