IRVINE, Calif., August 30, 2010 – EON Reality, the world’s leading interactive 3D software provider, today announced the formation of EON Kids2, a Joint Venture between Kids2, LLC and EON Reality, Inc. for the purpose of providing Education, Entertainment and Communication to the K through 12 Global Classroom.
One of the ways to accomplish this is to use 3D Virtual Technologies to bring the world into the classroom. « We can no longer expect students to have the same level of success using yesterday’s teaching methods as a means to understand today’s more complex theories and processes, » stated Thomas Smith, Executive Vice President of Business Development for EON Reality and a Member of the Kids2 Advisory Board. « Our methods are based on ‘Edutainment’ which entertains and educates the student at the same time. By entertaining the student, they will pay attention to the lesson; by paying attention, the student will understand the lesson; by understanding, the student will retain the information for a longer period of time. »
Learning a foreign language provides a great example of the value the technology has over other teaching methods, « In order to be successful in today’s business world, learning English is of prime importance, » according to Mr. Britton Lee, founder of Kids2, LLC. « Using the technology available to us today, we can provide U.S.-based English speaking instructors to any properly equipped classroom, anywhere in the world. »
Kids2 is in the process of launching a 3D Holographic « English as a Second Language » Learning Experience between the United States and Korea. » The value of having an instructor live from the United States inside the classroom in Korea will be readily apparent during our demonstration process, » stated Mr. Lee. « Just as exciting will be the demonstrated value of kids communicating with kids, learning each other’s cultures, and creating friendships both inside and outside of the classroom environment. »
« Our method supports Instructor to Classroom; Instructor to Student; Classroom to Classroom, and Student to Student real time live video experiences. We utilize the best technology available today and provide the best learning experience possible, » Mr. Lee stated. « We teach the language and we build friendships which support and enhance the learning experience in a way which can’t be replicated. »
« This is just the beginning of utilizing virtual technology in the educational environment, » according to Mr. Smith. « The Kids2 system not only utilizes 3D technology as a learning experience, it teaches the students how to create 3D objects and use their creativity in demonstrating physical facts and processes in fields such as Physics, Medicine, Biology, Chemistry; and virtually demonstrate their discoveries to the world. »
