The people at disruptED are reimagining education by bringing learning to life through AR and VR technology and engaging, interactive and immersive teaching tools for PreK-3rd grade children. Their mobile AR/VR platform is affordable and easy to download from any app store. Using books, their story-based program provides both AR and VR mode options for each book so educators and learners can choose which one fits their learning style best. They also include gamified activities in each book to promote deeper learning on topics. A major asset of their program? Teacher Guides that include standards aligned activities, lesson plans, and assessment tools for that provide educators with the crucial roadmap to easily use the AR/VR products inside and outside the digital experience. Their unique approach of providing immersive digital choices, comprehensive materials and whimsical characters all combine to help them make engagement levels soar and comprehension and retention levels increased (by 25% according to their study).
