I have spoken at numerous conference on Augmented Reality and I start most presentations with having participants color some of the the fun ColAR coloring pages. It is a great way to introduce augmented reality to people. These pages can also be used in elementary classrooms and even in makerspaces in a library. Everyone loves to color and everyone loves what the pages do. So it it is a win win.
Today while looking though my twitter feed I came across a tweet about Chromville. Much like ColAR you download the app, print out the coloring pages, color, and then the drawings come to life in really cool ways when you scan the page with the app.Chromville looks really promising and I am looking forward to incorporating them into my presentations.
Here is the video about Chromville -
I used colAR pages with weekend with my 5 year old niece and 2 year old nephew and they kept asking me to make the "magic" pages come to life. They loved it! Please share with me ways that you are using them with your students or kids.
