TOOLS TO HELP STUDENTS VISUALIZE ABSTRACT CONCEPTS
MERGE Cube and MERGE Goggles are powerful learning tools that help students visualize and understand abstract concepts by giving them memorable, authentic, and tactile learning experiences using virtual and augmented reality technology. With MERGE Cube, students can explore their world in a new way by holding holograms of the Solar System, human body, and hundreds of other objects. The simple act of slipping their smartphone into MERGE Goggles transports students to virtual worlds. Mr. Body, a holographic anatomy lesson, and HoloGLOBE, AR visualizations of Earth, are among the many free apps developed for MERGE Cube.
