Use of technology in education has been widespread in the last decade, thanks to developments and improvements in information and communication technologies, especially in mobile devices. Among the fields in which mobile devices play important roles, education is one of the leading ones. Mobile devices help teachers and learners access educational resources when needed. To increase the reality of virtual learning environments on mobile devices, Augmented Reality (AR) technologies were introduced for mobile platforms, and the term Mobile Augmented Reality (MAR) arose. MAR opens a new door for educators and trainers to experience new methods of teaching for mobile learners. In this chapter, educational use of AR on mobile devices will be explained. Throughout the content of the chapter, readers will be informed about how AR applications changed people's teaching and learning styles.
