Abstract

In Peru, Quechua-speaking people decrease every year due to disinterest, discrimination, lack of motivation for language learning even more in educational centers, lack of teachers willing to teach the language and lack of teaching materials with which children can interact during His learning. Augmented Reality (AR) is a great ally of education providing efficiency, productivity and increasing the interest of students in their academic activities. This paper is structured and implemented an application with AR for the learning of Quechua in preschool children, which will give children the possibility to connect with their environment, their own history and their ancestors in a fun way, and grow with a different awareness of the others, in addition to providing linguistic stimuli achieving greater ease for learning other languages, since after mastering this language develops skills for new learning.
