Introducing Children to Zoo Animals Is Now Made Magical, With The Newest- Rugs Alive

Technology has been embraced in so many ways and it has proved to be very beneficial and convenient. It has grown from strength to strength, especially in the field of education.

Online technology is reshaping the classroom experience. Teachers have new tools at their disposal which allow them to offer a quicker, standardised teaching experience to the children than pen and paper. Digitalization offers myriad options for tailor-made educational solutions for each student’s strengths and weaknesses, interests and pace of learning. These kinds of online tools make the learning environment flexible and less daunting for the child as learning is made fun with the use of characters and games and he can pick up from where he left off from school as well as home.

Augmented Reality is one such feature that is taking the education world by storm, especially in Dubai and becoming more and more popular in the learning experience for children. Visual cues have always led to a better understanding of the concept than just reading it in a textbook. Earlier videos were used with textbooks and now characters or environments are brought to life using virtual reality to give an almost real-life experience.
