eureca by imerzon provides deep learning experiences with augmented reality (AR) by placing animals, shapes, objects, and much more around users’ environment. For example, the app provides an interactable world using AR in which a child can play with an apple or a ball while he or she learns to identify the object. In one module, children find and associate animals with their sounds. Another module helps children to identify geometric shapes and associate them with real-life objects. Adaptive challenges are created for children to solve and advance to higher levels of complexity. By asking questions and providing answers, a Siri-like guide helps children to move through the levels. The app monitors children’s responses in real time and displays the information within Metrics, along with recommendations for improving learning outcomes. With separate Profiles, teachers can track complexities and performance for individual children. The app is currently available for iOS and will soon be available for selected Android devices. Cost: Free, with in-app purchases ($1.99/module)
