LAWRENCEVILLE, GA (PRWEB) October 23, 2011
Logical Choice Technologies, an industry leader in educational technology, announced today the release of Letters alive (R) 2.0. Letters alive is a supplemental reading curriculum that uses the innovative technology of augmented reality to bring letters to life for students in the form of 3D, interactive animals. Students master the building blocks of literacy: phonemic awareness, phonics, concepts of print, and comprehension. Letters alive aligns with Common Core State Standards and applies best practices in phonics-based reading instruction.
Letters Alive pioneers the integration of 3D, augmented reality into the classroom environment. No special glasses are needed to render animals, letters and videos into crisp, clear 3D images. Sentences built using an animal card and three sight word cards demonstrate concepts of print and punctuation. Meanwhile, the augmented reality technology prompts the animals to answer and react to students’ questions and statements that are formed by using the cards.
Letters alive 2.0 makes learning to read even more fun and exciting with its faster response times and augmented reality tracking. Students interacting with the animals by using the cards learn about the animal, the letter and sentence building.
As a supplemental reading curriculum, Letters alive provides a full year of lessons, stories, and student activity sheets. Student progress and achievement can be monitored before, during and after instruction with the newly included assessments in version 2.0.
