Augmented Reality is presently used in various arenas ranging from education to enterprise to entertainment. In the learning of Social Sciences, Augmented Reality plays a vital role by helping students perceive abstract information. Visual representation of information in a three dimensional form helps to comprehend information easily, thus helping to build concepts which are the cornerstone for any learning. This paper reviews some Augmented Reality Apps that can be used in teaching Social Sciences. The author has used few of these and also encouraged B.Ed students to use the same in their lessons. The insights garnered from this endeavor are also described in this paper.
