America’s Educator Ron Clark to Appear as a Hologram Through Promethean and ARHT Media Partnership

Jun 06, 2016

OTC Disclosure News Service

Promethean and ARHT Media Inc. (TSX.V: ART OTCQB: ARHTF) are pleased to
announce that Texas teachers and administrators attending the
Cypress-Fairbanks Independent School District’s Rigor, Relevance and
Relationships (RRR) Conference on June 7-10 will experience what they
have only seen in sci-fi movies – a keynote address delivered by a
hologram. Teacher, author and innovative school founder Ron Clark will
speak to over 1,300 Texas-based teachers and administrators gathered at
the Richard E. Berry Center as a HumaGramTM, a 3D human
hologram. Using a revolutionary new augmented reality technology, Mr.
Clark will offer educators from across Texas creative practices for
motivating students, parents and colleagues throughout the learning
process.

Made possible through a partnership between global education technology
leader Promethean and ARHT Media, Inc., the Ron Clark HumaGram at the
RRR Conference marks the first time that this augmented holographic
technology is being used to deliver teacher and administrator training
in an educational setting.

HumaGramsTM are ultra-enhanced holograms that “beam” a
speaker or presenter to anywhere in the world and to multiple places at
the same time – in real time and brilliant 3D. Having made its way into
the entertainment, healthcare and retail industries, this augmented
reality holographic technology from ARHT Media has profound implications
for education. According to Goldman Sachs, VR/AR technology in education
represents a $700 million market by 2025.

“We like to say that HumaGrams bring the best in the world to the rest
of the world,” said Paul Duffy, CEO of ARHT Media, Inc. “With our smARHT
education solution, we can bring the best educators and subject-matter
experts into any teaching environment from anywhere in the world. Now,
an expert scientist on the other side of the globe could beam into a
school in Texas and teach students about her research. Students are
drawn into real-world cases that apply to what they are learning in
school and show them future career possibilities.”

Vincent Young, Chief Marketing Officer for Promethean, said, “Over time,
Promethean’s vision is to work with ARHT Media to bring augmented
reality technology to mass audiences in education. We envision the best
experts and educators in the world beaming into schools on a monthly,
weekly, or even daily basis. In today’s modern learning environment,
augmented reality technology eliminates learning boundaries and connects
students to top experts. We’re thrilled to launch this exciting
technology into education with the support of Cypress-Fairbanks ISD and
demonstrate the opportunities it holds for educator training and student
learning.”

The Rigor, Relevance and Relationships Conference is hosted annually by
Cypress-Fairbanks ISD to provide education leaders with dynamic tools
and resources that can be taken back to their work places or classrooms.
On average, more than 1,300 educators from across Texas participate in
the conference. They will be the first group of educators in the country
to be trained by a fellow educator appearing as a HumaGram.

Disney’s American Teacher of the Year in 2000, Ron Clark will share his
best practices for getting the most out of challenging and hard to reach
students during his session. With vivid examples from his personal
experiences, he will discuss award-winning projects he conducted that
successfully motivated and inspired even the most disinterested
students. Mr. Clark will also focus on how to create the ideal classroom
and school environment where everyone is respected, appreciated and
motivated to perform to the best of their ability.

“We’re elated that Promethean is one of our Best Practices partners for
the 8th annual Rigor, Relevance, and Relationships Teacher
and Leadership Conferences,” said Linda Macias, Associate Superintendent
for Curriculum Instruction and Accountability for Cypress-Fairbanks
ISD. “Participants from over 90 districts will join us for the RRR
conference this year, and one of the highlights will be Ron Clark’s
presentation as a HumaGram. It’s the first time we will feature an
augmented reality technology experience for our conference participants,
and it presents exciting opportunities. They will receive exceptional
training and advice from an innovative educator while also seeing
cutting-edge technology in action. We hope it will spark ideas about how
new technology can enhance instruction in their schools and classrooms.”

Mr. Clark will appear as a pre-recorded HumaGram during both the RRR
Teacher Conference on June 7, 2016 and during the RRR Leadership
Conference from June 8-10, 2016 at the Richard E. Berry Center in
Cypress, Texas.
