Forest Classroom AR

 

Forest Classroom AR is an innovative immersive experience platform for students. Outcome of research and development supported by Berwick Lodge Primary School in partnership with Deakin University & Dreemar Solutions Pty Ltd. An innovative platform of multi-sensory learning experience created that uses Augmented Reality (AR) to engage students with their learning in classroom and assist with school readiness.

Augmented Reality (AR)

Augmented Reality (AR) is a technology that overlays a layer of digital content in your real world view using the camera on your smartphone and an app.  A variety of content can be overlaid including video (normal, green-screen or even 360-degree panning views), 2D or 3D models, animation, audio and even real-time spatial data can be displayed.

Experiences can be triggered by just about anything in the real world; whether an image, object or even a QR code.  Once a trigger is recognised by our technology almost any combination of content experiences can be delivered.

AR Childrens’ Storybook

The Forest Classroom is a Kindergarten to Prep/Foundation bridging curriculum program. After five years of research and development, Berwick Lodge Primary School, in partnership with Deakin University and Dreemar Solutions Pty Ltd, have created an innovative platform of multi-sensory learning that uses immersive technology and augmented reality (AR) to engage students with their learning at school and assist with school readiness.
In the #ForestClassroom program, students will learn about the natural environment, the senses and sustainability. Using hand-held technology (such as iPads and tablet devices) students will engage with their learning via an AR capable mobile app and book titled Hettie and Harry’s Forest Adventure – specially and specifically written and produced by the developers of the Forest Classroom program Henry Grossek, Liz Frances Symonds, Rob Kelly and Manjeet Singh Usma.

Hettie and Harry’s Forest Adventure will have a range of accompanying lesson resources and engaging real-world activities for educators, teachers and parents alike (such as drumming lessons, songs and mindfulness activities). These resources are under development and will be available soon.
