Day 3: DrawmaticAR
I have an interesting story about my connection to the DrawmaticAR app. I frequently research the latest augmented and virtual reality apps being released and found a DrawmaticAR video explanation. I was so excited to share this tool for our students, but after downloading the app, it didn’t work.
I researched several days before finding the developer on LinkedIn and sent a message about the app. Yosun Chang explained that she created the app for a contest and took it down because of the cost to maintain it. Long story short, she was able to get the app back on track and available before the TCEA conference in February. The app is already making educators excited to bring augmented reality into their classroom lessons.
Now get ready for an augmented reality treat! The DrawmaticAR app allows your students to write text and see it come to life in AR. Include specific words from the lexicon, and the 3D objects will arrive on the page. Students can hear the words read to them while seeing them in 3D. If you’re interested in testing the app for free, connect with @DrawmaticAR on Twitter and request by direct message. If you would like to download the iOS app, find it here.
Step 1: Download the DrawmaticAR app
Step 2: Download the DrawmaticAR Marker
Step 3A: Ask a student to write a few sentences in the rectangle and include a few items from the lexicon.
Step 3B: Eliminate the need to reprint the Marker multiple times. Cut out pieces of blank paper, write the sentences on the blank sheet of paper, and place it in the box on the Marker.
Step 4: Scan the Marker with the DrawmaticAR app.

The DrawmaticAR app is off to a good start, and I hope to see many more updates in the future. On the DrawmaticAR website, there are worksheets, lesson ideas, flashcards and tracing sheets. I can’t wait to share what’s coming next from Yosun Chang, and maybe we’ll be lucky enough to have it released during the #31DaysofARVRinEDU event!
Don’t forget to post what you create using DrawmaticAR and tag me plus include #31DaysofARVRinEDU.
