I learned from Paul Hamilton on Twitter about an augmented reality app that I plan on using to replace HP Reveal called EyeJack app. It has a creator app for the mac desktop and an app for your device. You set up a trigger, overlay, and option audio in the creator then scan the QR code it generates to load the effect (the first time). Look at the tweet below to see what my cover page looks like when you scan the QR code in the app.
Symmetrical Butterflies with iPads
When I first started teaching I would do an introductory lesson with my kindergartners that involved mixing the primary colors and symmetry by squirting paint on paper, folding it, and turning it into a butterfly. See how this is done from Theresa Gillespie's post here. She calls the lesson an oldie but a goodie and I agree. My interest in this lesson revived after running across a photo collage image in a Shutterfly ad (on right below). I started to rethink this lesson. Here are my new plans for two ways of creating this lesson.

P.S. If you include the whole body in the photo then these images can be used for a flying animation.

I explored an alternate way of creating these butterflies by using bilateral symmetry in Amaziograph app and adding a silhouette using superimpose app. I have a tutorial for silhouettes in this post: http://drydenart.weebly.com/fugleblog/silhouettes-with-superimpose-app
