Dragon Companion

Augmented Reality Based Geocaching

What is Dragon Companion?

Dragon Companion is a prototype application that combines a story narrative, direct agent/actor communications, and math learning associated geocaches. It draws on learning science concepts including curiosity-driven learning, narrative and agent use for motivation and engagement, gamification, and context-driven learning.

Within the application, a series of augmented reality learning scenarios are used to engage contextual-learning and meta-cognitive questioning techniques.
