Abstract

In the English as a foreign language (EFL) classroom, students suffer from the difficulty of English language learning especially in reading comprehension in terms of various grammatical. Autonomous learning is the major factor that could help EFL students develop reading comprehension. To increase students’ motivation, the environment has become an important part because students need to play a major character in English language classrooms. The technology could be the vehicle that supports the positive environment, especially in mobile devices because students could be able to access the online reading material anywhere which allows mobile-assisted English language learning to be applied in English reading learning. Although previous studies would clarify the application of Augmented Reality (AR) in reading comprehension, AR in this article as a technology system would be analyzed to find the benefits of pedagogical reading comprehension in terms of autonomous learning. It is believed that autonomous learning might be an effective way for EFL students to develop reading comprehension along with the use of AR. Therefore, this academic paper aims to examine whether the development of AR can contribute to autonomous learning would be more clarified.
