ALIVE STUDIOS - AUGMENTED REALITY
Have you ever stumbled across a new teaching resource that actually made your mouth hang open? Well, one conference booth in particular did just this for little old me. I was absolutely mesmerized by what I saw unfold at the Alive Studios booth. I knew I needed one of these to use with my students (it's already on order)!
|I got to hang with the Alive Studios gang.|
Meet Cynthia (president and creator) and Faith!!
Alive Studios has created supplemental reading and curriculums infused with augmented reality for the classroom. I'm talkin' 3-D reading and math programs that don't require glasses. Yup . . . you heard me right, 3-D! This company has embedded high-tech graphics, sounds, and other highly-engaging elements into amazing software programs that provide kids with different ways to experience and interact with both math and reading.
I had the opportunity to sit and chat with Cynthia (ceo and mastermind behind this amazing idea). Her story just makes sense. With access to just the right people and technology, she came up with a way to drive attention, capture imagination, and foster long-term learning in our youngsters in a very powerful way. She is on a mission to provide young learners with the tools to become proficient in math and reading by the end of 3rd grade.
As soon as I get this in my classroom, I will be sharing success stories with you. I know there will be many. If you are interested in learning more, click the image below to hit up the Alive Studios web site, where they share a bunch of other videos and tutorials on their software. The possibilities with this product are ENDLESS and I cannot wait to get my hands on one.
Thanks for taking the time to visit me today as I gushed about my favorite PK1 Conference find. I hope you take a moment to check this company out. It's definitely worth your time. Merry Wednesday, y'all.
