Our friends at Alive Studios are changing the way pre-kindergarten and elementary students develop reading and math skills. Using this series of powerful augmented reality learning tools, students will engage more, learn more, and retain more of the key concepts they are learning in the classroom!
The mission at Alive Studios is to equip teachers with engaging solutions that help young students become proficient in reading and math by third grade. Their products are the first of their kind to utilize augmented reality within a full-year curriculum. Kaplan is proud to partner with Alive Studios to bring these new augmented reality tools into Pre-K and elementary classrooms.
