Right now at Lifeliqe
Last year we began working with HTC as a strategic education partner for the Vive. We shared some of our lessons with SUNY Buffalo Professor Robert Lamb who tested learning gains with that medium and concluded,
“Meaningful use of technology in the science classroom that provides disciplinary convergence through underlying cognitive attributes, affective factors, and skills implementation."
We have just begun developing activities in mixed reality, using Microsoft HoloLens as our medium. In our first test:
- 76% of students involved in the study felt that these lessons captured more of their attention than traditional approach
- 80% felt that they were able to understand the subject matter more easily
As Michele Zimmermann of Renton Prep School in WA put it,
“The use of mixed reality with Lifeliqe can have a profound impact on conceptual understanding because of the visual nature and types of engagement possible."
So, we intend to continue developing 3D objects for learner to engage with and emerging technologies to increase that engagement and to enlist the aid of other academic researchers to tell us where we get it right. We want learners to be scientists, not just students of science.I want to try Lifeliqe in my class
