Augmented Reality in the Classroom
ColAR is a new way I have come across to integrate technology into the classroom . The website offers a range of free pages that can be printed on any type of paper using any printer (no magic ink required). The app is free to download and works on both IOS and Android. Children (or teachers) simply colour the sheet (although it is not a requirement), lay the sheet on a flat surface, hold the device above the sheet (ensuring that the whole sheet is visible) and let the magic happen.
There are so many options that could be used as a stimulus for a piece of creative writing or an oral language lesson (Béarla nó Gaeilge).
