This article summarises the results of five different studies on the use of Augmented and Virtual Reality (AR & VR) in education. The aim of this report is to show the different attitudes of gender and different age groups towards AR and VR. The different groups, learners in the primary, secondary and tertiary education sector (incl. teachers), conducted different activites or projects using the respective technology and were then questioned about interest, usability, usefulness, skepticism and availability of the AR or VR technology used. The results of the present study show varying degrees of differences in terms of attitude towards AR or VR depending on gender and age.
