Salvadoran government delivers Science and Technology books, a subject to be taught through augmented reality

Books and workbooks were delivered this day by the Ministry of Education to students of the Catholic School Center ‹‹Corazón de María››, in San Salvador. The activity was led by the interim minister of the institution, Mauricio Pineda.

‹‹What we want is for this to be one more tool, so that boys and girls learn in a more effective way,›› said Minister Pineda.

The benefited students attend fourth, fifth and sixth grade in said center of studies. The books will be used in the subject of Science and Technology, which will be the first subject in the country to be taught through augmented reality, in order to improve learning.

In this sense, the national director of Curriculum, Wilfredo Alexander Granados, expressed: ‹‹It is no longer just about transforming information, but about studying science by doing science in the classroom››.

With the delivery of this pedagogical material, the aim is to generate interest in science in students. The tablets given to children will be a complementary tool to access the content in augmented reality.
