Watch Your 2-D Drawing Come to Life
This is a fun activity for anyone of any age. Draw a picture using colored pencils, crayons, or any writing tool. Download the colARapp (free from Apple for the iPad). Then open the App on your iPad, and hold the iPad above the drawing as you would when taking a picture. Watch this demo to see how the App makes the picture come to life in 3-D. Can you see how you might use the ColAR app in the classroom to excite students, motivate discussion, andstimulate story telling?
Check this post below to see one way the App was used in a literacy unit of study.
