Construct3D is presented, a three-dimensional dynamic geometry construction tool that can be used in
high school and university education. This system uses Augmented Reality (AR) to provide a natural
setting for face-to-face collaboration of teachers and students. The main advantage of using AR is that
students actually see three dimensional objects which they until now had to calculate and construct
with traditional (mostly pen and paper) methods (Figure 1). By working directly in 3D space, complex
spatial problems and spatial relationships may be comprehended better and faster than with traditional
methods. This paper summarizes the development of learning objects and content specifically
designed for teaching dynamic 3D geometry in Augmented Reality. It concentrates on pedagogical
findings while working with teachers and students in more than 500 teaching lessons.
