With all three of my children, I've found using flashcards to be a great learning tool. Cypher Kids Augmented Reality Cards, are an exciting new type of flashcard, which works with your iPod touch, (4th generation) iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPad 2 & 3. Look for the i3D Interactive Cards at select WalMart locations across Canada. Once you've brought your cards home, it is time to download a free app from the iTunes store.
My Children Are 3D Junkies
Simply put, my children love 3D. They will put on the glasses and sit in front of our television and wonder why things aren't jumping off the screen at them, like they've experienced at the movies. Now, learning comes to life, with Cypher Kids there is no need for special glasses, just point your Apple Device at the cards and right before your eyes the cards come to life.
How Do Cypher Kids Augmented Reality Cards Work?
Point the camera on your Apple device toward the card. As it lays on a flat surface, the camera will read the card's special 3D marker. Magically, a 3D world will appear on the screen of your device.
We used our cards with our iPad 2. We loved the experience of the big screen and we are really impressed with how life-like and fun these cards are. Because of some previous issues we've experienced with our children and expensive electronic devices, we supervised the use of the iPad. Yet, I can see that children could use these cards without the need of supervision.
The Letter and Number cards are excellent tools for my young daughter, who is just learning reading and mathematics. Jillian's teacher has said to me that she is a little over-whelmed with starting grade one and moving to full time school. Sitting at the kitchen table and working on teaching and helping Jillian with her learning is a great start, but sadly it often ends with frustration. Using the interactive cards keeps her attention, and I find she is retaining what she is learning better. I can not wait to see the difference the cards make in Jillian's learning, over the next few weeks and months.
These aren't just cards - Cypher Entertainment i3D cards are an experience!
