Mystify Students With Augmented Reality

Aurasma is an app that uses new technology called Augmented Reality, that will blow your mind! Similar to QR codes, “trigger images” are used to bring something to life, such as video, audio, or animation. Picture a video scene from Hamlet playing on top of the students’ text – or a teacher-made video practice question providing instructions right on the nightly homework! It’s truly magical how it works and students from K-12 can use it in so many different ways. Plus, it’s easy to learn! Mollee will demonstrate some examples from elementary, and Tavia has used it with secondary students, so all grade levels can benefit from this awesome app.
