Learning is one of the most essential parts of human growth, especially kids. It helps to develop them into successful individuals and achieve their desired goals. To this effect, children are expected to read books, attend schools and colleges, and listen to lectures, listlessly, generally without any choice or motivation. We are creating learning tools for kids that shall redefine the way things are learnt. ‘Educards’ are one such product. They are basically Augmented Reality based flashcards that shall bring learning objects to life, virtually, for better understanding.
Text can bring a mind to imagine products, but cannot provide a realistic visual or feel. Whereas, education can become more interesting for kids if they are somehow enabled to interact with the objects they are learning. It shall make learning easier for kids to understand and grasp, interesting and effective for the knowledge to be transferred. This is where the ‘educards’ step in. Educards promote interactive learning for kids by giving them an AR education app experience. They are far ahead than boring text from textbooks, both in terms of attractiveness for the learner as well as the efficiency of learning gained. For example: A kid who has not seen a tiger before, but is made to learn T for tiger, may get uninterested and unmotivated. But, if T for Tiger starts roaring and walking in front of the kid, in a real-like manner, he is sure to get interested. He may actually end up learning much more about the tiger and its characteristics unintentionally.
Educards enable interactive learning from the learner’s home itself, helping their imagination go beyond books, pictures and stories. The AR Education App for Kids makes the learner enters a new era of interactive and brain-simulating learning, which they can explore at their own personal pace through mobile phones and tablets.
Educards are being created for kids of all levels. Thus, they are also a viable learning tool for the developing minds of secondary school levels. Currently, we are developing them as virtual laboratories of physics, chemistry, biology, mathematics amongst others. The learner shall be able to see, feel and experiment with elements, structures, mechanics, electronics, currents, etc. the way they are in real life, minus the danger aspect in their experimentation.
For example: we know well what an atom is as per the pictures seen in textbooks. But, its realistic power and functions require powerful microscopes to be seen and analyzed. These microscopes, telescopes and other hi-tech gadgets are a costly affair and thus, available only in well-stocked labs. It restricts the knowledge of a student, leaving him with partial or no realistic knowledge of elements/objects in question. With our educards, these kids can scan the card pertaining to oxygen, and see its gaseous form right down to its atoms as well as experience its feel, color, etc. It is the next generation of education transfer methodology that is interesting, interactive, innovative, effective and full of feelings. It simulates the learner’s mind, imagination and creativity, increasing the applicability of knowledge learnt manifolds. Educards truly are like a wand in student’s hand.
