ZooBurst 3D Augmented Reality Story Telling
As you know I’m always on the lookout for new ways to create engaging material for my accounting students. Well ZooBurst is a digital storytelling tool that is designed to let anyone easily create their own customized 3D pop-up books. It is also an augmented reality program allowing you or anyone else to view the book you’ve created in the palm of your hands.
As you’ll see in the video below, you need pretty steady hands so this will work best for the surgeons among us.
The interface is simple enough to use so creating a story is as straight-forward as 1) having a story to tell; 2) finding the correct clip art, 3) moving, sizing, rotating the clip art on a page; 4) adding the text to he clip art callouts and to the page. After that you have a 3-D pop up book, viewable via the web, embedded in a web page (see below) or as mentioned earlier in the palm of your hands.
So, here is my story below, please let me know what you think of this tool as a way of engaging students with accounting content, what suggestions you have for improvement and if you try, please share the stories you’ve come up with.
