Kids learn programming with the help of AR
App helps children learn “logical thinking as programming” through interactive AR experiences in science, mathematics, society, and Japanese subjects
In 2020, programming became a compulsory subject in Japanese elementary schools. The app developers recognized the difficulties in having enough time to learn both existing subjects and the newly introduced programming curriculum. For that reason, they wanted to create an app that stimulated logical programming thinking in an engaging, easy, and fun way.
Ai.R-Cord was designed to be used for teaching various subjects across 1st to 6th grade while exposing students to programming. Through Image Tracking augmented reality technology, users can display various augmentations such as robots, drones, dolphins, and dinosaurs, and program them to move. The “programming thinking” part is extracted and made into teaching materials, however, students can also learn programming thinking step-by-step using flowcharts. Watch the video below to see other functionalities of the AR app.
