AstroReality’s Education solution is a technology bridge between tactile and digital to discover the space like never before! With their AR Solar System Mini set, students can interact and visualize the planets through the Augmented Reality technology by pointing their devices on the 3D printed planetary models.
Working with these AR replicas, students are engaged in an immersive learning process; they will see the planets come to life their location and their rotation speed around the sun. In addition, they will have access to information and data directly from NASA and other accredited sources at the tip of your fingers.
Each planetary model is crafted and designed to utilize the highest quality renderings of the planets. It’s also precisely made with up to 0.1millimeters per pixel precision based on NASA data.
Quiver new Digital Aquarium environment is incredible! It’s used to link the mobile Augmented Reality coloring experiences with large, shared, and public displays. Overall, it can combine different AR colored fish with other additional features and educational elements.
When students finish coloring the sheets containing different types of fish (Star Fish, Sea Shell, Jellyfish), they can scan them using the Quiver App to magically bring their fish to life with the Augmented Reality technology. Afterwards, teachers can submit all the classroom’s custom-colored sheets to the Digital Aquarium where students can watch their fish swim all together on the large screen!
This digital environment has become a quite popular product across schools, STEM Labs, events, libraries, museums, conferences, etc…
ANSTO released the new AR periodic table where students learn more about its elements through the Augmented Reality technology. It reveals a world of protons, neutrons, and electrons and illustrates how useful they are to science and industry when students point their tablets at it.
This AR Periodic Table could be printed on A3 or A0 papers and displayed in labs or in classrooms where students use their devices with the related App to see new and engaging information about some of the most popular elements; including the arrangement of the atom and information on how the element is used in everyday life.
zSpace is an AR/VR laptop that provides students with a new way of learning by bringing together the augmented and virtual reality technologies. Its learning methodology consists of a combination of hardware, software and educational content where students are completely immersed in a learning experience that facilitates the building of a curriculum around it.
zSpace: AR/VR laptop
zSpace applications offer a realistic study environment by providing virtual-holographic images that can be “lifted” from the screen and manipulated with the stylus. Some applications also provide multi-sensory feedback; for example, students working with a virtual heart can see it pumping, hear it, and feel it beating.
zSpace: AR/VR Laptop
The AR/VR laptop comes with glasses that work in conjunction with its tracking system to provide users with an interactive AR/VR experience and a stylus that allows them to bring the objects out of the screen and into reality. It also offers interesting K-12 applications; some of them are listed below:
Franklin’s Lab – guides students through electricity concepts and troubleshooting faulty circuits. Students can follow guided activities and repair broken switches and motors in Workbench mode.
Euclid’s Shapes – offers activities with math manipulatives and provides teachers with a guide to math learning. Students learn with Base-10 blocks, Square Tiles, Fraction Bars, and more!
Curie’s Elements – allows students to explore a periodic table with Bohr and atomic models for each element. Students can also build elements by adding protons, neutrons, and electrons.
MEL Chemistry – provides an engaging visualization and explanation of chemistry concepts – from atoms to molecules including the periodic table, gas laws, and isomerism.
Experiences – include experiential-based simulations of Earth, Life, and Physical Science topics allowing students to manipulate content while learning abstract concepts.
Human Anatomy Atlas – is an award-winning human anatomy general reference. Students can explore human body systems, over 4,600 anatomical structures, and more!
Geogebra Classic – allows students to better engage in math concepts related to three-dimensional topics. Students can explore functions, geometry, algebra, calculus, and 3D math.
Newton’s Park – allows students to run or create their own experiments to deepen their knowledge of Newtonian Mechanics. Students can build simulations while interacting with data.
Dinosaurs 4D+ by Octagon Studio is an AR dinosaurs App that gives the learners the prehistoric experience of unleashing extinct Dinosaurs which existed millions of years ago on Earth! By pointing their mobiles or tablets on the flashcards, learners can watch the dinosaurs in 3D action and catch glimpses of the history, features, and interesting facts.
They can rotate, zoom in, and out the Dinosaurs to see the actual details in a 360-degree view by moving the devices. They can also spot the origins of the dinosaurs from the enormous Sauropods to the tiny Compsognathus all over the globe, compare human body size with each dinosaur, tap to see them in action, and share the knowledge to others.
Bookful is an augmented reality books App that uses the augmented reality technology to bring books to life. The app merges the digital and the physical worlds to create an interactive reading experience that instils in children a passion for books.
It is an incredibly powerful reading tool that helps children better understand book content and even provides information that extends beyond the pages of the book. It’s an augmented reality books App that engages visual, auditory, and kinesthetic learners alike by enhancing a book’s interactivity and generating additional stimuli.
