Platform for Creating Educational Augmented and Virtual Reality Content
On EON Reality’s platform, teachers can create a blended learning environment that allows them to combine 3D with PowerPoint, notes, sound effects, and more. EON Reality has developedCreator AVRspecifically to make educational augmentedandvirtual reality (AVR) content easy to create; no programming experience is needed. A marker lets users interact with lessons from the Creator AVR Library; they can modify prebuilt lessons or build their own lessons. EON Creator AVR’s drag-and-drop functionality enables users to quickly add interactions, different behaviors, and physics to AR/VR building blocks. Creator AVR lets teachers lead multiuser classes in touch or AR, guiding students through educational content and challenges. Shared gaze-tracking and a VoIP feature let students ask and answer questions as called on by the teacher, whether they are attending from home or working together in class around a shared AR marker. EON Creator AVR is available to download to iOS and Android devices.
Wonder Workshop is sponsoring the Wonder League Robotics Competition, a free global, virtual competition for students aged 6–14. The competition is intended to help students develop computational thinking, problem solving, and creativity by learning to code.
Vuforia Chalk delivers a unique communication experience enabled by the Vuforia augmented-reality platform. The app combines advanced augmented-reality collaboration tools with real-time video communications to connect students with their teacher or other educator so they can both see and discuss the instruction at hand.
Since Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventure in Wonderland debuted in 1865, the fantastical tale of a girl who falls down a rabbit hole and ends up in an alternative universe has inspired countless retellings.
