The Future is Now
Bring learning to life with our augmented reality app McGraw Hill AR
McGraw Hill and Verizon have partnered to create McGraw Hill AR, a free app combining proven content with powerful technology to engage your students in unique and impactful ways. See what's possible in your classroom.
What is McGraw Hill AR?
McGraw Hill AR is an augmented reality app that provides engaging, bite-size experiences that promote deep conceptual learning. These standards-aligned experiences give teachers flexibility in how they integrate them while helping students learn a concept in minutes. The app can supplement any core curriculum by:
- Stimulating engagement on challenging topics through interaction, exploration, and multi-sensory experiences.
- Encouraging student agency through self-directed activities.
- Working with existing technology in your classroom like tablets, smartphones, and Chromebooks (coming soon!).
How Does McGraw Hill AR Work?
Each activity offers a familiar, three-step approach.
- Observe: Students watch a narrated animation within the app.
- Explore: Students interact with 3D objects and experiment at their own pace.
- Evaluate: Students apply knowledge by answering interactive questions.
