My students ❤️ to build sentences & watch the sentences come to life… https://t.co/XXmFmSSP9W


I saw this video on my Twitter feed the other day, and I was amazed. The letters and words were actually coming to life on the screen! This activity is from AliveStudiosK12, and it’s called Letters Alive Plus. It combines literacy learning with the latest technology.

AliveStudios uses a 3D technology called augmented reality.  Imagine watching a literacy 3D movie without the glasses. The teacher uses programmed cards under a document camera. That’s when the real magic begins! Her students get to see the animals pop out of the screen. I know my students would love to a cow pop off the screen and moo loudly! I use the Fundations® program in my Basic Skills classroom. This would a great additional resource. 

Watch the video above and check out their website!
