Augmented reality for education

Given the democratization of the internet, textbooks are no longer the only learning tool. They are no longer the dominant reference material and teachers can now use external resources and countless youtube channels to provide audiovisual resources and educational videos.

Learning based on creativity and interaction results in more seamless information integration, especially as new generations are particularly stimulated by multimedia and conversation. There is a famous Chinese proverb “Tell me and I’ll forget. Show me and I remember. Involve me and I understand.”

Today, 80% of young people own smartphones. Capture a growing number of students, fight against dropping out of school, take advantage of 3D images, videos and audio available on the Internet to complement printed materials and give a new dimension to your educational resources.

Augmented reality on print, how does it work?

Augmented reality technology enables the superposition of digital elements over the real world: such as Instagram filters or Pokemons. The camera on your cell phone is enough to reveal this parallel world!

Connect your multimedia content to a well-defined physical medium: from your catalog to your e-commerce website, from the leaflet to the presentation video, from the packaging to a contest, from a paper guide to the city application… Connect videos, URL links, images, audio, text, games, 3D animations… to the visual media of your choice!

Print and digital are complementary, augmented reality makes it possible to take advantage of the best of both worlds! Onone hand, paper remains physically in the visual field and conveys the notoriety of a brand, it offers a comfortable reading and is a guarantee of confidence as to the content delivered. On the other hand, digital is more reactive, multimedia, interactive and generates statistics. These two supports collaborate and form a virtuous combination.

Augmented reality gives a new dimension to your marketing and communication plans, create the customer experience of your choice: educational, practical, fun or commercial.

Without modifying the basic form of your packaging thereby preserving all its inherent qualities, augmented reality comes as a supplement, a complementary service made available to your customers. Thus, reconciling technophiles and technophobes!
