360ed’s approach to student learning harnesses children’s play and curiosity by incorporating mobile devices into the everyday learning process by developing AR apps. These apps are aligned with the Myanmar national curriculum and dramatically expand the capability of current textbooks to be engaging and stimulating foundations for learning. By scanning with a smartphone certain images within textbooks, 360ed’s technologies enable the student to see detailed objects rendered in either 2D or 3D objects, learners can visualize their learning and find it easier to understand. Likewise, teachers can also use the AR app to visualize the content of a particular textbook chapter and then display it on a projector or TV screen.
