EON Reality announces inaugural Classroom 3.0 Campus in the Canary Islands

May 10, 2019 – EON Reality Inc., together with the Community of Canary Islands, has announced the launch of a new Classroom 3.0 Campus in Spain.

Focused on technical vocational training solutions, EON Reality’s flagship Augmented and Virtual Reality (AVR) Platform will be used to develop training modules in the fields of education, medicine, and tourism. Centered around the vocational training center of CIFP César Manrique in Tenerife, the AVR Platform will be utilized to make training and teaching more efficient and effective, according to the company.

Dan Lejerskar, Founder of EON Reality, said: “Bringing the AVR Platform to the Canary Islands will not only help launch their academic community into the 21st century using the Classroom 3.0 model, but also improve the bottom lines of several local companies and industries. By being the first in their region to adopt AVR technology, I have no doubt that Tenerife will see both immediate and permanent results in how training and teaching are done going forward.” He added, “We are also proud to announce that the Canary Islands will host the headquarters of EON Reality in Spain, not only because they are the first location in the region to adopt the AVR Platform, but also because of the great tax advantages that the Canary Islands offer to technological companies.”

Commenting on the opportunities that the AVR Platform may present for the region’s growing technology sector, Fernando Clavijo Batlle, President of the Canary Islands, said: “The Canary Islands are ready to embrace the AVR Platform and Classroom 3.0 movement in as many classrooms as possible as soon as possible. We are excited about the future and can’t wait to see how AVR technology can help with education across the Canary Islands. We are also very excited to see how our efforts to attract innovative, technological companies to establish in our region is gaining good traction. EON Reality is a fantastic company that we hope will light the way for many others to come.”

CIFP César Manrique will begin utilizing the AVR Platform in late 2019, with additional locations and uses possible at a later time.
