VirtualiTeach
August 14, 2018
In 2018 we conducted a pilot test research project on integration of their AR-based resources covering Geometry and Geography subjects into the learning process at K-6. Based on the feedback received from over 750 educators worldwide, augmented-based learning proved to increase children’s information retention rate by up to 100%, their engagement in the lessons and shown significant improvement on the test scores. The interaction with plug-and-play quality AR content combined with traditional learning activities helps primary age students develop creativity, problem-solving and critical thinking skills. The set of skills that according to The World Economic Forum 2018 will be required for the jobs of the future in the next 10 years.
