Curriculum To Watch: Letters Alive




Letters Alive is the first curriculum based on augmented reality. You can watch the video clip above; essentially, the program aims to teach young children to read and write through interaction with virtual, 3D animals. Cynthia Kaye, the CEO of Logical Choice Technologies (which developed the curriculum), explains it more here; in that video she’s surrounded by some of the animals that students are interacting with.

You can learn more about the program in this article from NPR, as well as this article.

Audobon Park Elementary in Orlando was the first school in the nation to adopt the curriculum, and it’s being beta-tested in several other elementary schools in California and Florida.

What do you think: Is this the future of teaching reading, or a technological fad?
