The article presents a project about design and implementation of Augmented Reality (AR) as a digital wearable in nursing education, more specifically in teaching lung anatomy and respiration focusing on visual learning. The project investigates how an AR application operated via an iPad and a tag worn by a person enhances learning of the relations between the physical lung and the visual representation of a lung. The investigation addressed draws on Design Based Research (DBR) and theoretical knowledge of AR and wearables, Inquiry Based Science Education (IBSE) visual learning, and visual cultures of medicine. The design tests show that AR and wearables promote visual learning in a positive way. Furthermore, the design tests show that even small technical adjustments change students’ focus from learning content to technological improvements.

Finally, we conclude that the combination between wearable and IBSE facilitate visual learning and support a holistic approach to learning anatomy which may be transferred to patient care.
