Pioneering the leap in creative education that teachers and students have long
been waiting for, Leap With Alice is a revolutionary tool for passionate educators -
serving as every “Teacher’s Aide”. Classrooms are transformed from a work
environment to an immersive experience where teachers and students can mutually
thrive. Leap With Alice provides templates and guides on how to create interactive
content, fast and free. Using simple drag and drop features, educators possess the
ability bring everyday lesson plans to life. It has the tools and is handing them directly to those
best suited to wield their power.
Augmented Reality grants teachers the resources to generate immersive and
deeply engaging content; taking the existing world around us and overlaying new
information on top of it. Students finally receive content that best suits the development
of their unique abilities. The classroom, as a whole, interacts and connects with
educational material that had previously been deemed tedious or dull.
Enhanced educational material is exchanged via the ALICE Exchange. For the
first time, educators can impact students on a global scale with a single lesson plan;
breaking free from the confines of a single classroom. The time and effort required to
creating individualized content has the opportunity to receive proper value, thanks to
blockchain technology. Incentivizing every step of the way, content creators and
curators are rewarded (in ALICE) for positive contributions to the Leap With Alice
community. Leveraging the innovations of modern technology and disrupting the
education system as we know it, Leap With Alice hands the power over to those who
should lead the way, passionate educators.
