Augmented Reality - Digital Creator Classes for Tablets

Age 8-11+
Suitable For Workshops; After School Activities
Augmented Reality Workshops for Primary Schools

Primary school children create their own Augmented Reality (AR) content!

Our exclusive program introduces students to the 'magic' of Augmented Reality (AR) taking real-world items and enhancing them with computer generated imagery. They make their content 3D and even 4D with the help of avatars, 3D models, animations and their own creativity. This powerful technology allows students to create and publish their own Augmented Reality content.

Augmented Reality (AR) workshops for school children from KS2 and up

Students will develop their knowledge of Augmented Reality bringing the static world to life and creating content-rich interactive experiences. Talking newspapers, holding a NASA spacecraft in their hands and bringing lip syncing avatars to life will become their new augmented reality.

Looking for more interesting uses for your school iPads or android tablets?

This exciting and unusual class is a great way to get more value from your school tablets. Children become digital creators using a range of apps to create their own Augmented Reality (AR) content and exploring other commercial applications. This class can be run on iPads or android tablets - it is not available on desktop/laptop PCs.

Perfect for an innovative and exciting computing workshop or extra-curricular after school computer club

After class, friends and family can download the free app and experience the students' interactive, engaging content come to life!

Students will:

  • Develop an understanding of Augmented Reality**
