The article discusses how the Kinfolk app is utilizing Augmented Reality (AR) to reimagine how we learn about history. Kinfolk has successfully integrated AR into both self-paced learning and in-classroom experiences, providing immersive historical walkthroughs and visual overlays that make learning more engaging and relatable. According to Kinfolk's Jasmine Maze, AR allows students to immerse themselves in historical communities and explore values and visions of overlooked figures from Black, Brown, Indigenous, and Queer history.
Kinfolk's AR capabilities are not limited to history lessons; they extend to offering multisensory learning across various subjects. These experiences are found to improve engagement by 30% and are especially helpful for students with learning needs like ADHD and ASD. Kinfolk's approach to AR can be easily incorporated into existing curriculums without an overhaul, making it a versatile tool for enhancing educational outcomes.
