Have you had the chance to read The Dot (by Peter H. Reynolds)? It’s about a young girl, Vashti, who doesn’t think she has much to offer in her Art class. Her teacher gives her a unique frame of view and off she goes, making her mark. She doesn’t just stop there, she encourages others to do the same.

 

All around Canada (and the world!) students are celebrating Dot Day on September 15th.

You might be asking yourself, why is the Ed Tech writing about a children’s book? Well I’m glad you asked!

I want to use this as an opportunity to talk about Augmented Reality. Augmented Reality is something I’ll be sharing a lot of, because it is exciting to live in the future! There is a great app called Quiver. They are an amazing producer of colourable augmented reality sheets.

Check out this quick video on how it works:

You can download the iOS, Kindle, and Android apps here.

Here is the link to The Dot colouring page. Download, print, colour and use your app to help it come to life!

    • Well now I am going to need to see some awesome videos of your kids being amazed! Don’t hold out on the Ed Tech!
