In today’s world, there is a growing demand for professionals with skills in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. At the same time, teaching STEM subjects can be a challenging task, as students struggle to understand abstract concepts and complex phenomena in lectures and textbooks. This has given rise to a new approach to learning called active learning, with the use of interactive simulations and three-dimensional visualisations to improve conceptual understanding. In this paper, we focus on the use of mobile AR as a tool to facilitate active learning for a new generation of learners. We introduce a framework for choosing appropriate visual augmentations for educational purposes. As a practical use case, we describe the design, development and evaluation of a mobile AR Android app for learning about magnetism. Our findings indicate that the use of AR on mobile phones is indeed interesting to students, even with prior knowledge of magnetism.
