ColAR is an extraordinary free app that TechCrunch just wrote about (see ColAR Uses Augmented Reality To Bring Your Kid’s Drawing To Life). It’s free, and lets you print out coloring pages from their site, color them in, look at them through the tablet app, and they come alive.

Watch this video and prepare to be mesmerized:

I could see English Language Learners, and other students, color in the pictures and then create a story based on the augmented reality version.

Other ideas?

I’m certainly adding it to The Best Resources For Beginning iPad Users.

  1. Kindergarteners could color the pictures and then make a story about the photo using Explain Everything, Shaddow Puppets or even Chatter Pix may work. They could also use the above to label things in the pictures.
