StoryBox AR is the world’s first augmented reality storytelling app specifically for the classroom. Built using Apple’s new ARKit technology, StoryBox AR aims to bring stories to life using narration and augmented reality. Each short story is designed to open a pupils’ imagination and inspire a love of creative writing. Launching at the start of 2021, StoryBox AR will be accessible through a workshop programme and will be later released as a whole school subscription package.

Each experience has been designed to link with the objectives of the national curriculum. Every story includes five chapters, each one professionally narrated by voice over actors. Current stories include The Child Gladiator (Romans) and The Resistance Fighter (WW2). More stories to follow.
Using the power of AR pupils can step foot inside every story. Place a portal inside your school to transport your class to another world and allow them to experience a unique way of storytelling. Each computer-generated scene has been carefully designed to reflect the story and help bring the characters and plot to life.
Pupils will meet key characters from each story as they come to life right in front of them. Characters are animated and voiced by professional actors. Built-in photo and video functionality also allows pupils to record character interactions for follow up writing activities.
Student devices can be managed from one central iPad, allowing teachers complete control. Lock devices, play narration and disable camera functionality to ensure 100% pupil engagement. Full class experiences can be run offline ensuring there are no connection or WiFi disruptions.Interested?
Each experience aims to inspire a writing exercise and every story comes with a bank of lesson plans, writing packs and follow up resources. Choose from a range of ideas to encourage the best creative writing outcomes for your class. All resources are included with an annual subscription to StoryBox AR.
