Augmented reality company developing software for interactive classroom learning
(GWINNETT- METRO ATLANTA) June 9, 2014 – Cynthia Kaye, former CEO of Logical Choice Technologies, joined Gwinnett Chamber Economic Development to announce the launch of Alive Studios, Inc., a new vision for interactive classroom education. Dedicated to engaging early learners using augmented reality, the company is the first of its kind in the K-12 marketplace. Alive Studios is expected to create more than 30 new jobs over the next three years for the metro Atlanta community.
“This is a teacher-focused, research-driven team that is passionate about innovating great solutions to get our students engaged and excited about learning,” said Kaye, Alive Studios Founder.
“We applaud Alive Studios on its launch and efforts to better improve how we educate the next generation,” said Gwinnett County District 3 Commissioner Tommy Hunter. “We are confident they will find the support, resources, and connections in Gwinnett County that will ensure continued growth and success.”
Alive Studios is now the sole developer and supporter of the former Logical Choice Technologies’ flagship products: Letters alive®, Math alive™, and Storybooks alive™. Each product incorporates the use of computer-generated augmented reality technology (3-D without glasses) into games, activities, and lessons. The supplements are designed to help students grasp key concepts in reading and math.
“Cynthia’s story is a classic entrepreneurship tale. She saw the potential of augmented reality as an instructional tool, and built a line of products and a company around it. Guided by her insight and drive, Alive Studios is poised for real growth,” commented Mark Farmer, Director of Entrepreneurship and Information Services for Gwinnett Chamber Economic Development and Partnership Gwinnett.
Alive Studios, Inc. will make its first public appearance at booth 3078 during the ISTE Conference in Atlanta, GA, June 28-July 1. Although Alive Studios’ products are used in more than 30 states and 10 countries, all development, programming, art, and animation work is performed in Georgia.
