Followers of ClassTechTips.com know that I’m a huge fan of scannable technology. QR codes and augmented reality can promote deeper learning when used thoughtfully in a lesson. One of my favorite augmented reality apps is Quiver. I had the chance to use their awesome augmented reality coloring pages just a few weeks ago during iPad family programming with the amazing folks at LitWorld.
If you haven’t used Quiver before, it gives students a variety of coloring book pages that turn into augmented reality images. I actually featured two pictures of Quiver in action on the cover of my book Deeper Learning with QR Codes and Augmented Reality: A Scannable Solution for Your Classroom. Students can use all different colors to color the pages as they explore different topics. Coloring book pages might not feel very educational on the surface, but just like any app it depends on how you connect technology to your learning goals – tasks before apps. The list below highlights some of my favorite augmented reality triggers from the folks at Quiver.
