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 PreK and elementary classrooms.
Alive Studios is introducing their first published book in a series of 26 short stories featuring the lovable animals from Letters alive® and Math alive®. Amos Alligator Arrives at the Airport is a fun interactive story that springs to life via augmented reality (3D) when used in combination with a free downloadable app. Amos and all his friends will appear on your smart device and interact with your young reader as he/she touches the screen. This book is perfect for the classroom and at-home story time. Several games and activities are included in the story that create opportunities to engage parents in their child's reading experience.
Dr. Tamara Ogletree, Associate Professor of Reading at the University of West Georgia, recently conducted an independent study on improved student outcomes as a result of using the Letters alive™ program.
