ISTE NEWS: Alive Studios Introduces Classrooms alive!™

Alive Studios, a provider of augmented reality-based literacy tools for early learners, has unveiled Classrooms alive! for pre-K and kindergarten classrooms. This research-based supplemental curriculum provides a multi-sensory learning experience where 26 animals come alive in 3D and interact with students to help them learn the foundational skills for reading and math. 

Teachers can boost their math and literacy blocks with zoo-themed lessons and activities aligned to kindergarten state standards. The complete Classrooms alive! package includes:

  • Learning alive Plus interactive reading and math software kit;
  • 12’ x 7’6” oval Alphabet Classroom Rug with Rugs alive™ mobile app;
  • My Letters alive Journals  20 pack with Journals alive™ mobile app;
  • My Math alive Journals  20 pack with Journals alive mobile app;
  • Supplemental curriculum lesson plans; and 
  • A 60-day trial of assessments for guided instruction. 

Learning alive Plus is a learning kit for reading and math that works on Windows-based and Apple computers. Children interact hands-on with 26 zoo animals while learning letters, letter sounds, phonetic word-building, and sentence-building—as well as 86 essential math skills. Lessons can be whole-group with a projector or smart panel, or small-group and intervention on a computer screen. 

The Alphabet Classroom Rug and free Rugs alive mobile app turn smartphones and mobile tablets into a window through which students can see 26 animals—one for each letter of the alphabet—come to life on the rug. 

My Letters/Math alive Student Journals and the free Journals alive mobile app provide children with their own book for mastering letters, shapes, numbers, and counting. 

Classrooms alive! also includes supplemental lesson plans aligned to kindergarten state standards.

Interested educators can experience a Zoo Tour in person at ISTE 2019 in Philadelphia at booth #3037 or at SDE19 in Vegas at booth #319.
