This study aimed to compare and contrast educational presentations prepared with the help of PowerPoint (PPT) program and augmented reality (AR) and to explore teacher candidates' presentation experiences in terms of impact on learning, motivation, usability/employability, and positive and negative aspects. In this context, a qualitative study with a phenomenological design was conducted. The study group was composed of teacher candidates attending the Department of Computer Education. Study data were collected via the interview form developed by the researchers. Research results show that AR applications are superior to PPT presentations in many respects, and while both AR and PPT presentations have positive and negative aspects, traditional learning environments with PPT presentations are no longer sufficient to attract the attention and interest of today's students and meet current demands. Moreover, there is a need to increase educational content and infrastructure to improve the use of AR in addition to providing training to teacher candidates and teachers.
