Day 18 - WWI Memorial Virtual Explorer App
The WW1 Virtual Explorer app helps students explore the history of World War 1 in immersive experiences. This app is a great resource for students, history enthusiasts, and anyone interested in learning more about this critical period in world history. The app is full of historical information perfect for classroom research but adds a layer of AR scenes to bring realistic learning into the classroom.
Its simple interface is similar to turning the pages of a book. Some of the topics include:
The Timeline Tower is a 2-story interactive 3D timeline that showcases over 50 key events from WWI in chronological order.
A game-type presentation of the sinking of the Lusitania, an event that drew America into the global conflict.
The app showcases interactive 3D models of WWI vehicles such as airplanes, tanks, motorized ambulances, and a 1917 Harley Davidson motorcycle.
