Development of Augmented Reality Learning Materials for the Hearing Impaired Students in Primary I

Abstract—There are challenges in the education of students with hearing impairments, including difficulties in reading and writing the Thai language due to a lack of appropriate learning materials. The COVID-19 pandemic has further exacerbated these issues by necessitating the adoption of technology-based learning methods. In response to these challenges, researchers have proposed the development of learning materials to support the education of students with hearing impairments. These materials will not only benefit the students themselves but also their parents who may struggle to support their children’s learning. Furthermore, the use of these materials will contribute to the promotion of inclusivity and equality in education. To investigate the effectiveness of Augmented Reality (AR) books as a learning tool for first-grade students with hearing impairments in primary education, a study was conducted with a target group of ten students (whole level) from Thungmahamek School for the Deaf, selected through stratified random sampling. The results indicated that the development of AR-Books had an effectiveness of 85.33/87, with E1 and E2 values exceeding the established standards. In addition, learning outcomes after using AR-Books were significantly higher than before the intervention at a statistical significance level of 0.05. The students’ satisfaction with the use of AR-Books was also high.
