Teach Your Monster to Read - Phonics and Reading on the App Store Aurasma in the Music Classroom · just a little more Using Aurasma in the Music classroom Since the beginning of this year, Aurasma has been a big hit with my students; it’s easy to set up and it’s way cooler than last year’s QR codes. I’ve been using Aurasma in the Music Classroom to create opportunities for exploring those who write and perform music and to bring those musicians into my classroom in a very futuristic way. However, I’m most excited about how Aurasma will allow my students to creatively share their demonstrations of understanding and their musical compositions. It all started when I first saw this bulletin board on Mrs King’s Blog and decided to take a different twist on the idea. I mustache you a question… Do you REALLLLLY know these musicians? Last year, we mastered creating QR codes to bring student work to life, to provide links to websites, and to distribute various files for download, etc. More than just a QR code How the children use Aurasma in the music classroom.

107 Favorite iPad Apps for K-8 Great iPad apps for K-8 Tablet computing and mobile devices promise to have a dramatic impact on education. A growing number of schools across the world are jumping on the digital bus and embracing iPads (less often, other tablet products) as the latest tool to teach literature in multimedia, history through games and simulations, and math with step-by-step animation of problems. Not surprisingly, student scores improve when they use iPads and their interest in school soars. I say not surprisingly because students love digital toys and in my experience work harder and longer if given the opportunity to do so with any of the digital offerings (ipods, laptops included). In my school, we have been rotating one set of Pads this year through K-8. Drawing AirSketch Free–Turn your iPad into a wireless whiteboard!
