THIRD PLACE: Wake up class with holograms GRADES 9-12 | APP.com | Asbury Park Press

APLINK is glad there are others out the that think like i do… hologram technology has the potential to transform life as we know it ! Applications are only limited by imagination and funding now between imagination and funding which is the hardest to make a reality !

What if…

there was a way to keep kids entertained, enthusiastic, and well-educated? I believe a new frontier in educational technology could do just that. Holograms would open whole new worlds

Technology could help make Alexander Hamilton a lot more real. Holograms could be used to display lifelike historical figures to the class. A hologram is a

three-dimensional image produced by rays of light. The holograms could be programmed to answer questions as well. Instead of sitting in class listening to someone else describe Alexander Hamilton, students would see the man with their own eyes. Not only that, but they could ask him questions. It’s much easier to learn through hands-on experiences, and that’s exactly what the holograms would provide. To some, historical figures are just dead guys who did important things. Being able to meet and question them would break that stereotype and increase learning. By interacting with these famous people, student would be able to truly become part of history. History would become alive for them.
