Enhancing Education with Augmented Reality

Together, Snap and Inspirit are bringing a new dimension to students’ lessons

Augmented reality enhances conversations with friends, fuels self-expression and creativity, and brings experiences and education into new dimensions. 

We’ve teamed up with edtech company Inspirit, advised by researchers at Stanford University, to bring augmented reality into classrooms across the United States to help students better grasp STEM concepts. Since the beginning of our pilot this summer with Stride, Inc., we’ve uncovered tremendous results – 85% of students agreed that incorporating AR into their lessons aids with memory and retention, and nearly half displayed a notable increase in engagement. 

With custom-built Lenses brought into an easy to use mobile application with Camera Kit, Inspirit designed a transformative curriculum that pairs Snap’s AR technology with a comprehensive learning guide, empowering teachers to facilitate dynamic learning and students to achieve their best, whether they’re learning from the classroom or at home. The curriculum is designed to stimulate classroom engagement, boost confidence levels, and improve students’ self-efficacy. 

Looking ahead, we’re expanding our work together, with 25 STEM experiences for over 50 schools across the country, using the power of AR to revolutionize the way students learn.
