Augmented Reality - Breakout EDU mashup!

This past weekend, my teammate Tiah Frankish and I attended the GAFE Summit put on by the EdTechTeam and hosted by Boulder Valley School District in Colorado. We learned a ton of new things, and were re-invigorated when we returned to work on Monday.

Two of the sessions we went to were especially fun, a Breakout EDU building session lead by Crystal Miller and Sarah Stuhr and another one on Augmented Reality by Micah Shippee. Of course, our minds started spinning - how could we hide a clue to a lock for a Breakout activity in an augmented reality image? We decided to hide numbers in a Dodecahedron pattern that would only be revealed when viewed through the Quiver App. You can see the result below:

Ha! I didn't even notice the Tech & Learning magazine underneath.
We can't wait to use this in our next Breakout EDU session!

If you want to try it out yourself, here's the link to the final file. Tiah did all the coloring around the numbers - it helps to have an artistic teammate!!

If you'd like to make your own, here's the key we used to create it. On the first page in this file, the dots on the sides of the Dodecahedron helped us determine how it would line up when viewed through the Quiver App. On the second page you can see how we drew in the numbers, and then there's the blank Dodecahedron, a free download from the Quiver website

Though the Quiver app is free, to view the Platonic Solids pages on the Quiver site, you do need to pony up $2.99. Totally worth it though!!

If you create any of your own, share them through the comments on this blog post or tag me through Twitter! I'd love to see your creations!!


  1. Great post! I'm looking forward to hearing more about your classroom uses of AR! - micah
