QuiverVision new AR digital aquarium environment is incredible! It’s used to link the mobile AR 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. Afterward, teachers can submit all the classroom’s custom-colored sheets to the digital environment 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…
KUBO Robot is a simple, intuitive solution that teaches coding for kids without a computer. It consists of a small robot on two wheels and a set of thin puzzle pieces that fit together to create programming chains and evolve the robot. These puzzles contain symbols, letters, and numbers that also allow children to learn some language skills, mathematics concepts, and music.
ANSTO XR released a 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.
The program is designed to make STEM subjects engaging and exciting for the next generation, according to the Minister for Industry, Science and Technology, Karen Andrews.
“It’s so important that we get as many children as possible studying these subjects, because so many of the jobs of the future will require the skills,” said Andrews.
How to Use ANSTO AR Periodic Table?
Teachers need to simply download the free app, get the students to point their device at the ANSTO periodic poster on a wall (or the pocket poster) and instantly students can 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.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown, several schools & universities turned to online exam tools to manage their distance exams.
Respondus Lockdown Browser is a specially designed web browser for taking online exams. It prevents students from copying, pasting, taking screen captures, using instant messaging programs, accessing other applications, or accessing other websites (unless configured to allow access to specified external sites).
How Does Respondus LockDown Browser Work?
Assessments are displayed full-screen and cannot be minimized
Browser menu and toolbar options are removed, except for Back, Forward, Refresh and Stop
Prevents access to other applications including messaging, screen-sharing, virtual machines, and remote desktops
Printing and screen capture functions are disabled
Copying and pasting anything to or from an assessment is prevented
Right-click menu options, function keys, keyboard shortcuts, and task switching are disabled
An assessment cannot be exited until the student submits it for grading
Assessments that are set up for use with LockDown Browser cannot be accessed with other browsers
How to Host a Free Virtual Graduation Ceremony with Microsoft Teams?
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many students will, unfortunately, miss out on the chance to celebrate their accomplishments with a traditional graduation ceremony this year. However, a virtual graduation can still go ahead with Microsoft Teams.
From early May through July 1st, holders of a Microsoft Office 365 A1, which is free for educational institutions, will have the ability to host online live graduation with up to 20,000 attendees. A pre-recorded graduation and a celebration with “photos & videos” are also available.
zSpaceis 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 laptop 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.

zSpace Laptop Applications
zSpace laptop 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.
