“ After reading this article in the New York Times yesterday I started thinking about one of my favorite coloring apps for children. No matter how old or young you are coloring requires a combination of skills that can be applied in various situations. Combining coloring with augmented reality is an easy way to introduce this exciting technology to students. The colAR Mix app (available for iOS and Android devices) is a super fun choice with plenty of free options.”

Kim Flintoff's curator insight, April 17, 2015 10:18 PM

The lesson here for higher ed is about developing familiarity with new technologies.  The possibilities for AR across all disciplines are immense, but often students (and teachers) find it difficult to initially connect with a use that allows them to start to conceive of how it can be used.  Something as ubiquitous as colouring is used in many contexts (think of the Anatomy colouring book used by many health practitioners to learn about systems and connections).

Jarrod Johnson's curator insight, April 18, 2015 8:15 PM

Just bought a colouring in book for Sophie that does this. The fact that I can make my own is cool.
