Out of Science Fiction and into the Classroom with Letters Alive
Limited Capacity seats available

Come take a peek at some mind-boggling new technology– the first teaching and learning application using “augmented reality.” The curriculum application, Letters Alive, is an exceptionally engaging way to teach children how to read. Learning is experiential. The more senses that are involved (sight, sound and touch) and the more emotional the connection, the stronger the learning experience.  Our patented technology works by overlaying seemingly-real digital experiences (virtual interactive 3D images, words, videos, sounds) in the classroom using a regular computer, document camera, and projector.
