Kickstarter Campaign to Bring Learning to Life on Mobile Devices Using Augmented Reality


CHRISTCHURCH, NEW ZEALAND (PRWEB) June 28, 2014

Today, MindSpace Solutions Ltd launched a Kickstarter campaign to bring learning to life on mobile devices using Augmented Reality.

Their product, Imaginality, uses Augmented Reality to enable playful learning on over 60 topics, while also supporting teachers with curriculum relevant resources and worksheets. You can even have fun creating your own experiences and sharing them with the world.

Imaginality enables children to hold a beating 3D heart in the palm of their hand and see how blood flows through it, investigate solar eclipses, or even become a dinosaur.

Imaginality is already available on Windows computers, but the Kickstarter campaign aims to bring it to other platforms, particularly tablets and phones.

Mobile devices are perfectly suited to Imaginality, as you can look through them like a window into another world, walk around a desk interacting with virtual objects, and you can easily share them with others around the classroom says Eric Woods, Managing Director of MindSpace Solutions.

MindSpace is offering rewards of Imaginality, with versions for home users, schools and businesses. They are offering steep, Kickstarter-only discounts, and a remarkable Get one, Give one promotion: for every pledge made to Kickstarter, MindSpace will make an equal donation to a school of your choice! This enables teachers to promote Imaginality as a fundraiser with kids being able to take it home too.

Sometimes I wish I could be a child in this era. They [my students] are very lucky said Nigel Eames, teacher at Paparoa Street Primary School.

A MindSpace partner, CARE, will be demonstrating Imaginality and an early mobile prototype at the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) conference in Atlanta, Ga., from 28 June to 1 July.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Augmented Reality?

The easiest way to understand it is to watch one of the videos on our page, but Augmented Reality, or AR, is technology that takes a view of the real world and places virtual content on it, as if it was in the real world. Using this technology, Imaginality enables students to hold a beating 3D heart in the palm of their hand and see how blood flows through it, investigate solar eclipses, or even become a dinosaur.

What is Imaginality

Imaginality topics currently focus on Science, Social Studies and Maths in mid-primary to mid-secondary school levels, however, they are also expanding into literacy with Story Creators, where students can arrange characters, props and environments on screen, type a story and take a picture. In addition to learning these traditional topics, Imaginality can also be used with Sketchup to create or import 3D models from a library of over 200,000, add images, audio and text, choose simple interactions and then share the experience online. This can be used to teach creativity, higher-order thinking skills (HOTS), media, technology and even programming in a fun, visual way.

“Augmented Reality has been used for the last couple of years for marketing, but Imaginality is pioneering its use as a comprehensive learning tool” said Mr Woods.

How does it work?

Imaginality uses a set of 12 generic, handheld paddles, but when you choose a topic and view the paddles through a camera, the paddles come to life with virtual objects attached to them. The display allows you to see yourself moving the 3D virtual objects as if they were real objects. These objects then interact in various ways: scale to relative sizes, lock together to build a machine, or perform interactive simulations of systems like the Phases of the Moon. You can even hold a paddle up to your head to wear Mori artefacts or to become an endangered animal. Each 3D object includes supporting information, which can be read as text, or after the Kickstarter, narrated out loud as you look at it. Despite using the latest technology, Imaginality is surprisingly easy to use as it is based on simply moving around physical objects. And if there is no webcam or paddles available, you can still use everything by moving virtual paddles around with a mouse.

The best part about it was how you spend so little time setting it up – a brief demonstration and they are off said Nigel Eames, teacher at Paparoa Street Primary School.

Part of this ease of use is due to careful design: We knew we would have to design a new set of interface standards, and stay consistent to them said Mr Woods, We now take these standards for granted on desktop and touch-screen computers, but with Augmented Reality, we are essentially starting from scratch. They also paid careful attention to enabling playful learning.

What is Playful Learning?

In our first few years, we all learn so much, and have so much fun doing it says Mr Woods, We want students to keep this passion for learning throughout their whole school lives.”

Albert Einstein was quoted as saying Play is the highest form of research, this sentiment is shared by many prominent researchers including Jean Piaget and Rochel Gelman, who developed the PrePS system.

The Many Possibilities of Using DIY Solar Power

DIY solar
by serkeros

You can make the most of solar energy with DIY solar power projects that you can do around your home to save money and create a positive impact on the environment.

Maybe you enjoy being handy, or maybe you’re just looking for ways to save money now and in years to come. The solar energy information highlighted here will give you some helpful tips for getting started and great ideas for do-it-yourself projects.

Why Consider DIY Solar Projects?

The benefits of DIY solar projects are multi-faceted but easy to see.

Return on initial investment in three years rather than 10-15
Less damage to environment
The sun provides an endless source of energy
Saves money
Save on electricity costs and will use less of it overall
You can add solar amenities at your convenience
Store excess energy to use when needed or sell back to utility company
Tools required are basic
Quality information often offered for free

Drawbacks to DIY Solar Projects

The two major objections most often spoken in reference to DIY solar power projects are:

Initial cost of materials – can be expensive for some, even if you’re doing it yourself
No sunlight = no power for the home. It’s true, cloudy days and rainy days are not ideal conditions for using the sun’s energy to power your home.
The good news is that there are backup systems available to stand in the gap and provide power for your home even on those “no sun” days.

Easy DIY Projects Using Solar Energy

What projects can you take on yourself without a ton of knowledge? There are hundreds actually, but we’ll list some of the easiest ones here to get you thinking. You’ll quickly realize that solar power is well within your reach if you simply know how to begin.

Solar Stills – produce purer water for cooking and drinking
Solar fans – for cooling the attic space so that your AC unit doesn’t require as much energy to run (it will run less often)
Solar panels – build your own to place on the roof, on a pole, or on ground level to capture sunlight and power your home
Solarize your home by adding passive solar elements
Solar water heaters
Solar powered outdoor lights
Solar water pumps
Wind turbine
Solar wood drying kiln
Solar battery charger
Solar oven
Solar pool heater

Lower Your Homes’ Energy Requirements

You can also make an impact on how efficiently your home utilizes solar energy by doing the following:

Install Energy Star energy saving appliances into your home to help reduce your overall energy requirements
Use fluorescent and compact fluorescent lights to reduce electricity needs
Install skylights if possible to take advantage of natural daylight
Opt for waterless toilets, composting toilets, or toilets that require less water to operate
Learn landscaping techniques that reduce your energy requirements
Properly insulate your attic
Insulate your windows and doors efficiently

How To Get Started With DIY Solar Power

First, you must figure out and understand how much power your home requires and how much energy you need to generate. Once you have this knowledge, you can figure out how many solar panels you’ll need to build in order to generate your minimum energy levels.

Seek out your local zoning board and request a permit to install solar panels on or around your home. You’ll also want to contact your local power company to obtain permission to connect your solar panels to the grid.

Obtain a good manual with detailed instructions on how to build your own solar panels or any other beginner’s solar project so you know you have a good blueprint.

Make a list of the items you’ll need to complete each project and estimate the cost of the project before launching it.

You’ll be using free energy from the sun in no time!
