Quiver Vision is awesome!
Quiver Vision is a favorite tool of mine for its' ability to include augmented reality in a simple way in your classroom. I use it every year for International Dot Day as well as for reading promotion events. During our International Dot Day event at school this year, several teachers approached me about having never heard of Quiver Vision before. In case you have not heard of it either, this is for you!
What is it?
Quiver allows you to take your coloring to the next level with augmented reality! There are so many options through the Quiver Vision website you print off for your students to color and then use the iPad app to use the augmented reality component. Hold the iPad above the picture to see it come to life!
The app is available for free for the Google Play store, App Store, and Amazon.
What can you do?
I suggest using the Quiver Education app for added components like being able to record audio over the app. When using the app, students can also record themselves speaking along with the process of scanning the coloring page and it has the option to download the video! Appsmashing wtih Flipgrid can help make this experience into an opportunity for deeper learning and collaboration.
Social Studies/ELA: There are TONS of holiday ideas for Quiver. Try printing off the Christmas Tree coloring page. While students are learning about how different countries celebrate Christmas or the holidays, have students record a video using the Quiver app to explain what the most eye-opening or neatest tradition that they learned was. Students can then upload the videos to Flipgrid in order to create a whole class compilation of what they learned. Share it with parents on your weekly newsletter or through Seesaw. You can also use this for students to share what some of their own holiday traditions are! Virtual holiday cards to military.
Science: The volcano and the cell have the 3D experience that users love about Quiver but they also contain an added bonus, a quiz@ You can view the image as you colored it, but you can also be quizzed on parts of the volcano or the cell. The app asks you to identify a feature and gives you a selection of choices to tap. If you tap the wrong one, it shows the correct one. It is a fun way to check on progress.
Math: PI Day in March would be an awesome day to use Quiver!
The ideas are endless with this app and it's educational components.
