Adam Figueira created Camera Obscura: Alternate Reality for the Classroom to allow photography teachers to capitalize on children's natural love of games and effectively teach about the world around them. "Gamification takes the principles that make games engaging, positive and effective and applies them to learning," says Figueira. "It's not the same as giving kids a game that's vaguely related to a subject and asking them to extract relevant lessons. It's a return to the way humans natively learn: by figuring things out through experience." Now, Figueira has launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise development and distribution funds for his new program that he believes will use students' natural interest in gamification to help them learn about photography.

Today's education system generally requires separate books, workbooks, audio and of course, a teacher, which just makes learning impractical. Learners cannot have the teacher follow them around everywhere; they cannot always take their heavy books and workbooks with them. On the other hand, people who speak at least one foreign language earn more, handle difficulties more easily and they can even choose from many opportunities in their lives. So, certainly, they will have better opportunities if they learn English. Their knowledge will last for a lifetime, all they have to do is to practice 5 minutes a day.
