Froggipedia is an engaging augmented reality (AR) app for iOS that helps students to explore and discover the unique life cycle and intricate anatomical details of a frog. Created by Designmate, this constructive learning app provides an interactive, immersive experience that elaborates on each phase of the life cycle of this little amphibian. Students can observe how it turns from a single-celled egg in water to a tadpole, which in turn metamorphoses into a froglet and eventually into a full-grown frog. Students can further dissect and observe the complex structure of its various organ systems right on their iPad or iPhone using an Apple pencil or their finger. A fun quiz in the end helps students consolidate the knowledge they’ve gained through this innovative app. Cost: $3.99
