The ARphabet I SPY game is simpler than Oakbub. Here is the idea:
Make an alphabet with Bubiko!

Facebook Spark realization by Flamingo Filter
Oakbub: a learning game in which plants and animals are labeled with their scientific Latin names.
- phone with camera + Facebook app
- free download of Bubiko files
(to get files email:bubikoworldtour (AT) g mail
PROCEDURE: once app is loaded, point the camera and position Bubiko. Take a picture and add text. Save.
- Can be used as a recess activity.
- Science lesson (why do we use Latin names? What is a species? etc.)
- Art, language and geography lessons as well.
- The app used has been used and tested millions of times.
I have been working on ideas like this for a while, but now with schools being closed, I want to get the idea out there, even though lesson plans are not formalized.
Bubiko Foodtour's Unusual Guide to Augmented Reality on Amazon
I have taught 3D game making and creative writing in Singapore; and in Japan, I taught English. Since 2016, I have been involved with AR (Augmented Reality) and have spoken about it worldwide, twice at MIT. I also have active careers as a writer, video maker, producer and artist.
Bubiko was co-developed by Stephen Black and Sayuri Okayama. The 3D version of Bubiko was realized by Novaby.
Why is it called Oakbub?
I input 'Bubiko Latin' into an anagram generator. One result was 'oak bub I lint'. I liked Oakbub!
Your thoughts and questions are welcomed. I know you are busy, and so I will revamp this page and include more lesson plan ideas.
