Aurasma is a an app that allows you to provide information to your students via augmented reality. Use this app transform a static image into a video, much like you see in a Harry Potter movie.
Put simply, record a video on your iPad, open the Aursama app, capture/set the trigger image, link to the overlay (your video), save your aura. That it!
Use Aurasma to differentiate a worksheet activity, to model a task or procedure, present a solution. Place trigger images around your room or school to create a school tour or parent night. Have students create a book review linked to the book cover. Share your other great ideas by commenting on this post.
