Designed specifically for the classroom, StoryBox AR combines professional narration with augmented reality to create an immersive storytelling experience. Built specifically for iPad using Apple’s new ARKit technology, our industry leading app is bringing storytelling into the 21st century and is transforming the way that schools deliver stories in the classroom. Launching at the start of 2021, StoryBox AR will initially be available through our engaging workshops but will later be available as a yearly subscription through school iPads.Register Interest
Every story has been written in the second person to draw pupils in and make them feel like they are a part of the action. Each chapter is professionally narrated by voiceover actors and is combined with realistic and well-timed sound effects to create a fully immersive, engaging experience.
Pupils will step foot inside a story using the power of AR portals. Using an iPad, pupils will be able to place a magical door in front of them and physically walk through it to visualise a 360° environment. Each scene has been meticulously designed using computer-generated models to provide an engaging and a gamified experience popular with this age group.
Pupils will see characters come to life in front of their eyes. Each character is fully animated and voiced by a professional actor. Using an iPad, pupils can take photos or record videos with the characters which can then be used during follow up writing activities.
Designed specifically for whole class experiences, StoryBox AR is easy to use and gives teachers complete control. Teachers can lock pupil devices to ensure 100% engagement and guarantee a smooth delivery. StoryBox AR can also be delivered offline, meaning no WiFi disruptions or connectivity issues.Have a Question?
Each story is designed to inspire pupils with their creative writing. StoryBox AR places pupils inside a story, where they can explore their surroundings and meet characters firsthand. We have designed a range of writing packs, lesson plans and follow up resources which encourage creative writing and meet the objectives of the national curriculum.
StoryBox AR is available to schools nationwide through our highly rated workshops. Over the course of a day, our team can deliver a number of sessions across different year groups. We currently have two stories available: Romans and WW2. We are developing a number of other stories which we will continue to add to the platform.
We are also offering schools the opportunity to combine our AR and VR workshops into one day. If you’re interested in finding out more about what we can offer your school, please request a copy of our brochure or request a callback with one of our team.Book a Workshop
