Learning can be fun! With educational apps of the Corinth Micro series, Corinth aims to make education of complex and abstract subjects more comprehensible. The first app of the series, `Corinth Micro Plant`, has just been named the educational app of the week by Microsoft. This interactive educational tool for tablets, smartphones and desktops runs on Microsoft Windows 8 and Surface RT and provides a complete three-dimensional immersion into the microbiology of a plant.
“This provides a very immersive learning experience, using technology to really enhance and provide something that just a simple image or a book wouldn`t do,“ claims Tony Salcito, Microsoft Vice President for education, in the video about the educational app of the week. “It`s an amazingly cool application to test out,“ Mr. Salcito concludes.
The application `Corinth Micro Plant` has recently gained a lot of recognition from Microsoft’s educational program representatives and currently occupies the first spot at the Window Store Spotlight. Last week, Larry Nelson, Director of Microsoft Global Education Partners, presented it at the GSV ASU Education Innovation Summit, which is the biggest education conference in Northern America.
Tony Salcito also showed the use of the app on the video demonstrating the educational possibilities for Windows 8. Furthermore, he presented the app during the key note speech at the Global Partners In Learning Forum last fall.
Ray Fleming from Microsoft’s Australian Partner Team considers `Corinth Micro Plant` completely different than the rest of the educational applications developed for Windows 8. In his article about the app, he calls `Corinth Micro Plant` a “unique,” “fascinating,” and “immersive” tool both for teachers and students to explore the plant microbiology.
Corinth Micro Plant now has a brand new follow-up. `Corinth Micro Engines` provides an interactive learning experience of an engine`s technology and is available to download at the Windows Store.
