Apple: 'AR Is Going To Dramatically Change The Way This Generation Learns'

During today's education-focused event, Apple introduced some new AR applications during the showcase for the new iPad.


After declaring that iOS is the "largest AR platform in the world", Apple introduced a collection of new AR applications. ARKit is the foundation of Apple's AR functionality across devices.

Reported on The Verge, Boulevard AR by Boulevard is painting for the classroom that is visible via augmented reality. Free Rivers is an AR application by the World Wildlife Fund. It allows you to look at different environments, how they function, and how various elements impact their existence and ecosystems. Lastly was Froggipedia by Designmate. It takes the classic frog dissecting experience of classrooms and makes it a great deal less messy by allowing students to interact via AR.

The company also announced a new AR kit module for their Everyone Can Code curriculum, in addition to introducing the new Everyone Can Create session. The images you see in those post feature the new, Apple Pencil-powered iPad that announced during the event.

      Yeah it probably will, but not through a phone or tablet screen

        I agree. We have yet to see an AR product that defines how we will interact with augmented reality. There hasn’t been that multitouch moment.

      I have been studying foreign languages for a long time and have recently learned about time management, a site that has been personally helpful to me is I divide my time into breaks (usually 15 minutes) and work (45 minutes). That way I can focus on one thing at a time. Have you tried this before? I've been using this method for 2 months now and it's been very helpful.
