The aim of the current study is to reveal the effectiveness of a training program using an educational platform on developing the skills of employing augmented reality apps to enhance the teaching of mathematics among elementary school teachers. The experimental approach with a quasi-experimental design, a one-group pre-/post-test design, was used in this study. The study sample consisted of 36 elementary school mathematics teachers in Saudi Arabia, and an achievement test and an observation card were used as measurement tools. The study identified a statistically noteworthy distinction, with a significance level of 0.05, in the mean scores of the study group before and after the administration of the achievement test and the observation card, favoring the post-application results. The study suggested the importance of directing those in charge of developing training programs within the Ministry of Education to incorporate educational platforms as a key component of distance education methods.
