Canva is a favorite app and web tool for creating classroom posters.  It is an easy to use graphic design tool that turns users into creators of amazing content.  At LitWorld this past year we’ve used Canva to make posters for interactive library spaces.  The posters alone are visually pleasing but not exactly interactive.

Creating Augmented Reality Triggers

Update: Blippar is no longer available. You can use this other favorite augmented reality tool to create content for you classroom.

To make our library posters interactive we’ve turned them into augmented reality triggers.  First, I uploaded them to Blippar – a fantastic augmented reality creation tool.  Then, I layered virtual content on top of the poster like video links to songs and book recommendations.  Once the free Blippar app was loaded on every device in the library, families could scan to see augmented reality content bounce off of the page.

Combining the power of Blippar and Canva is one way to energize your library spaces!
