About Michael McGar

Michael McGar was awarded a grant to found the Apple Multimedia Center in 1989 at a college in Dallas, and ever since he has worked to push the edges of media in education. Augmented Reality provides amazing new tools to engage and immerse students in a way that was not possible until now.

He is currently working to open new worlds and inspire imagination by creating experiences for students to travel back in time and witness events as they took place, on the exact location where they occurred. He also wants students to have that same experience in a classroom or at home, since not everyone has the ability to travel to historic sites.

Our team of top historians, artists, animators, developers, and amazing writers, bring experiential educational media to a new level of engagement and learning. The path of exploration for me has never been more exciting and challenging, the reward has been seeing young learners, eager to learn more, and teachers happy to help light the way.
