This study aimed to identify the trends in the studies conducted on Educational Augmented Reality (AR). 105 articles found in ERIC, EBSCOhost and ScinceDirect databases were reviewed with this purpose in mind. Analyses displayed that the number of educational AR studies has increased over the years. Quantitative methods were mostly preferred in those articles and educational AR was often found to be used in science education (physics, chemistry and biology), engineering education and medical training. The reviewed articles showed that “undergraduate students” were used as samples for most of the time, the most often preferred sample size was between “31-100” and “surveys” were the most utilized data collection tools. While the majority of the articles used marker-based AR as AR type, mobile devices were utilized in many of these articles as the delivery technology. It is believed that the results obtained in this study will light the way for future research.
