How I Use It
I have used Quiver, formerly ColAR Mix, with my elementary students. We would use these coloring pages when they tied into what we were covering to extend a lesson. For example, we used the dragon coloring page after reading a story about a dragon and the design a shoe page after we learned about how shoes are made. Students loved seeing their 2D art become 3D when using this app.
My Take
Students love this app and are always wondering if other worksheets will come to life if we use the Quiver app with it. They are disappointed when they learn that only coloring pages made by Quiver works with the app. Remind students that they shouldn’t color dark on these pages, otherwise the app can not detect the image and it doesn’t work, we have had better luck with crayons than markers. They are continuing to come out with more coloring pages, including more with an educational focus. I’m excited for Quiver to produce more pages that tie to what we are learning in the classroom.
