Learn Calligraphy with Augmented Reality

Sheridan College Professor of Interaction Design, Mark Shufflebottom, shared this resource with a group the other day. In three steps with a mobile device, you can use augmented reality to guide your calligraphic pen to make several interesting designs. First, print the marker so that your phone has a virtual connection to the paper. Secondly, load the web page on the mobile device and hold it over the marker and your drawing paper. The image will appear and you or your students can then ‘trace’ the a.r. image that appears. You might want to devise some sort of holder for the device so things don’t shift around too much.
