Educational Potential
Being Leonardo describes the multidisciplinary activities of the great Florentine master, in the historical context of the Renaissance, ranging in various thematic areas.
It is one of the first App developed for smartphone, tablet and virtual reality, focused on immersive experience. It is a model for the future virtual reality books.
The ergonomy is based on a 3d timelind that represents Leonardo's life, with a sequence of immersive environments dedicated to Leonardo.
It's an immersive biography: you are Leonardo, you live Leonardo's life.
The interface concept is based on 3d and immersive approach.
The app is interesting for the innovative interface, which is designed for use on a mobile device, tablet or smartphone, and for Virtual Reality viewers.

It is probably the first App designed in parallel and in native form for touch use and use on virtual reality devices, and introduces the students to the immersive education approach.
Learning Object / Suggested activities with students
The App is a example of "3d book",and its challenge is engaging students in art and history.

Looks good and is a topic which I think is interesting for kids and teens. I like the dedective manner how to research into the themes Leonardo worked on.
