Layar is an app that allows users to scan things such as QR codes or anything with a Layar label and access videos and additional material associated with the codes. Users can log into Layar, and accessed material can be viewed again in the “recent content” history sidebar. Layar can be integrated well into the classroom; for example, teachers can assign specific pages and text to students. Students can then highlight indicated sections in their textbooks and take pictures of them. After that, any videos and resources associated with the page appear whenever the student points the tablet’s camera at the page, allowing students to have more access to helpful videos on given subjects.
Make worksheets fun! Why use boring worksheets. Make worksheets come to life by using Layar. Attach video, documents, or websites to a worksheet to make them more fun for your students.
