As an English learning game with Augmented Reality (AR) / Virtual Reality (VR), it facilitates learning of the vocabulary of animals and their living habits in an immersive environment.
Immersed in virtual wilderness adventures to feel the charm of nature in the animal kingdom, Safari Photographer stimulates learners’ curiosity and creativity! Learners are motivated to learn native English with a combination of science and technology while experiencing a new and disruptive English learning mode.
Gamified activities and tasks allow learners to enjoy learning while having fun with Safari Photographer’s interactive environment that eliminates the mechanical repetition style of English language learning.
We may not have the famous Harry Potter’s magic wand to bring resurrect things, but we can have Safari Photographer to almost do the same things with our smartphones.
To make learning more interactive and fun, Safari Photographer incorporates various different latest technologies with language learning. Safari photographer not only allows children to bring the animals to real life, but also lets them enter the safari and be a professional photographer to fulfil different fun tasks. It definitely makes language learning less boring.
The animals that I see after I’ve played with the flashcards are even more real with my goggle headset. I know I need to be careful listening to the instructions so that I take the right pictures because I only have three chances each time and I don’t want to get it wrong. Sometimes it’s quite hard to see the animals quickly, so I have to pay attention.
Teaching lessons related to animals is always delightful with this little gadget of technology with the goggle headsets. The students love it and I love seeing them have so much fun with trying to spot the animals while responding to the instructions they are given through listening and reading from the screens. Some students actually ask me if they can take one home for homework! I must say that I do not set homework for my students at the centre, therefore it’s unfortunately not possible for them to take the headsets home.
