See how Pearson K12 Learning introduced an interactive classroom experience for U.S. History.
Pearson K12 Learning sought to create a supplemental component to their U.S. History program that’s flexible, intuitive, and engaging for high school students. The component had to be easy for teachers to integrate into their classroom, focus the students’ inquiry, and enhance their understanding.
HERE'S WHAT WE DID
Pearson K12 Learning partnered with AllenComm to create Project Imagine: United States History, a modular, digital supplement to their program for high schools. Using AllenComm technology and Pearson K12 Learning content, the team created a fully immersive learning experience that helps students see, hear, feel, and experience history in a new way. For example, instead of just learning about Harry Truman and his decision to drop the atomic bomb on Japan in WWII, students are put in a situation where they gather information to help them decide what they would do if they were Harry Truman.
Project Imagine encourages students to ask questions, explore scenarios, and gain a new perspective on historic culture and everyday life through archival video, music, photographs, as well as 360° virtual reality. The topic modules are easy for teachers to access and assign while acting as a support for any U.S. History curriculum.
- Engages students in learning with a more immersive digital experience
- Increases use of primary sources like photos, historical records, etc. in the classroom by placing them in a more authentic environment
- Helps teachers save time with pre-built digital activities for students
"AllenComm is an awesome development partner. They’re responsive, innovative, and provide solutions that support our technical requirements and achieve our creative vision, while delivering on time and within budget."
