Publish date:

(ATLANTA, Georgia)June 13, 2017Alive Studios will be introducing the Learning alive™ Plus Station for Sprout Pro by HP G2 at ISTE in San Antonio later this month. The Sprout Pro by HP G2 is a next-generation immersive learning station that features 2D and 3D capture capabilities, dual multi-touch displays, and hi-resolution cameras. Now, it can show off its amazing and highly innovative feature set even more so in the early education space.

“We’re super-excited to introduce our unique reading and math solutions on the Sprout Pro by HP G2 to early educators!” exclaimed Cynthia B. Kaye, CEO and Chief Zoo Keeper of Alive Studios. This revolutionary new reading solution has also been catching tremendous attention in several school districts with a high population of English language learners.

Alive Studios is an early education software developer based in the Atlanta area with a line of classroom solutions that helps early learners become proficient in reading and math using hands-on augmented technology. The Learning alive Plus Suite is the company’s bundled solution for reading and math and is the first of its kind to incorporate 3D augmented reality magic, which allows their 26 animal characters (A to Z) to spring to life and interact with children.

Letters alive® Plus, the reading portion of the learning suite, teaches the foundations for reading English and is aligned to state standards for kindergarten. In addition to its eye-popping and interactive 3D graphics, Letters alive Plus uses a cross-curricular approach by tying in sciences via 26 beautifully animated animal characters. Early learners learn animal facts alongside letter names, letter sounds, sight words, word-building, and sentence-building.

“By incorporating a differentiated learning experience that taps the key learning modalities, we’re able to increase engagement and retention across all learners including ELL, at-risk, and special needs students,” added Kaye. This non-conventional, technology-based instruction is credited by many of its users as one of the biggest contributors to improved literacy scores.

The multi-touch display and high-definition HP Touch Mat technology offered in Sprout Pro by HP G2 will be fully utilized with the Learning alive Suite. With ordinary-looking flashcards, early learners will be able to build words and sentences that come to life in beautiful 3D animation.

“I love watching our software run on Sprout Pro by HP G2. They simply go together so perfectly,” said Kaye. The software also uses the built-in projection capabilities of Sprout Pro by HP G2. In the program modules, virtual buttons are projected onto the 20-point Touch Mat, allowing children to touch and interact as they complete each exercise.

HP’s Director of Education for Immersive Computing, Laura Vidal-Borrell stated, “Alive Studios has taken the cutting-edge technology on Sprout Pro by HP G2 to create a super fun and engaging learning experience. We are very excited to see the Learning alive Plus Station for Sprout Pro by HP G2 used in schools and libraries across the world to support early learning and literacy.”
