Last week, I showed the students in Mr. Portas class the chromville augmented reality coloring pages. They had so much fun and loved how the pages came to life! I tweeted out their excitement and was really happy when the creators DM me back saying they would love to hangout with my students!
This morning we got to meet with them and it was so much fun for them! They were amazed that we could be talking with someone from Spain. And thanks to google maps, I was able to show them just where they were located and show them pictures of the town! Technology at its best! My students loved sharing the pictures they made and were blown away by some of the technology they showed them! I can not thank the guys from Chromville enough for taking the time out of their day to connect with my kids! It was truly a experience they will not forget soon.
