Back to School with Augmented Reality

"In what’s being described in Israel as a “Bible revival,"a new curriculum for students is taking the study of this ancient book squarely into the twenty-first century!

The tablet-based curriculum is a study of the Bible using innovative augmented reality developed by Museum of the Bible.

The first Israeli city to use the curriculum is Ramat Gan, spearheaded by its mayor, Yisrael Singer.

The program’s remarkable success caught the attention of the Israel Ministry of Education, Youth and Society, who honored Mayor Singer, citing his “pioneering work championing the new program.”

The program has grown from 1,500 students in 2015 to over 6,000 in 2016, with plans to reach tens of thousands by 2017, including use by private and homeschool groups throughout the United States.

Engaging the smartphone generation with the Bible—in the land where it all began!"
