Bring schools to life with Aurasma app

Bring schools to life with Aurasma app
The Magic of Bringing Information to life. I’m assuming you’ve seen at least one of the eight Harry Potter films. In the films, one everyday magical experience is that photos are always moving as if they were video screens, even though they are ‘printed’ on paper. Newspaper photos act out the news event as film too, whilst you walk down the road reading. It seems so magical and yet, like so many things these days , there’s an app for that! The Aurasma App (free) allows you to create what’s known as Augmented Reality (Real life with extra info added) Here’s a great intro into the world of Augmented Reality. And here’s Aurasma’s own demo video of it in action: Before I take you though how to make your own, let’s look at the potential uses for learning. Lets start with possible posters on the walls around your school or classroom that come to life and What about the school newsletters? The possibilities are endless! Getting started with your first “Auras” I will have a fun 2014 with this app. Related:  Kreativt ITAR

Tons of Classroom Examples Using Augmented Reality with @Aurasma - A Complete How-To Guide! How to Use Augmented Reality in Your Classroomthis post is read best via a desktop due to the embedded video content Augmented reality allows someone to add another layer to an existing image. For example, imagine holding your phone over a poster on the wall as if you were going to take a photo of that poster, and then instantly a video starts playing to offer you additional information about that particular poster. Pretty cool, right? The first time it happens, it seems like magic. After watching the video below, I knew I had to figure this augmented reality thing out. Aurasma is the app I use to create augmented reality. Sharing Aurasma with My Husband's Colleagues Not only is augmented reality amazing, it's also free and easy to do. While waiting for our table to be called for dinner, we were discussing the nice decorations displayed around the reception hall. His colleagues began instantly brainstorming how this could be used for their business. Augmented Reality Vocabulary Step 1:

An Often Untapped Source of Digital Devices for Classrooms Perhaps you've heard that Apple recently released a new iPhone (#sarcasm). This is a good time to remind you of an often untapped source of digital devices for your classroom. Ask your students' parents to donate their old phones to your classroom when they upgrade their mobile phonphonees. You will probably find that most of those phones can at the very least be used for taking pictures to be used in multimedia projects. Tips for gathering and using old mobile phones in your classroom: 1.

Aumentaty | El valor de la realidad aumentada Quels usages pour la réalité augmentée dans le monde du livre ? On peut définir la réalité augmentée comme la superposition d’informations à l’environnement réel. L’exemple le plus ancien d’un tel dispositif est la « vision tête haute » dans les cockpits d’avion de chasse : les pilotes voient des informations s’afficher en surimpression sur leur pare-brise. Ce même principe existe dans les voitures récentes. La réalité augmentée sur téléphone Avec la montée en puissance des smartphones, la réalité augmentée peut être utilisée au travers de l’écran d’un téléphone. Ce principe pourrait permettre à un lecteur de retrouver plus facilement un ouvrage dans les rayonnages d’une bibliothèque. La réalité augmentée sur ordinateur ou console de jeu Les ordinateurs récents sont équipés d’une caméra au dessus de leur écran, capable de filmer leur utilisateur. C’est ce principe qu’utilise le Sony Wonderbook : un livre augmenté issu du monde d’Harry Potter. La réalité augmentée projetée sur le réel La réalité augmentée intégrée à notre vision

EduApps With tablet computers becoming more popular in schools, allowing greater accessibility to rich content enhancing the teaching and learning in classrooms, we have been compiling a list of apps which educators are using in their settings to help the learning process. The main choices schools have chosen between are using tablets operating on the Android platform, or the iOS apps available for iPads. Therefore, for ease, we have two EduApp pages available, so please click on the relevant platform below to be re-directed to the page suited for you. You can easily sort the columns by clicking the arrows by each heading.

AirServer Åhhhh! Det är så roligt! Blev nyfiken på detta eftersom att jag älskar min iPad, men tycker att det är liiiiite jobbigt att hålla i adaptersladden. Många har hittat på fiffiga lösningar med gummisnoddar etc, men jag hade redan börjat tröttna på att vara fast i projektor. För några dagar sen kom de en diskussion på fb ang AirServer och jag blev nyfiken på det, eftersom jag suktat efter en appletv ett tag. Sagt och gjort! Laddade hem trialversionen och satte igång och testade lite grann. Hade såklart insett att; Detta ska jag köpa! Och dagen efter passade jag på att hugga tag i rektorn, som tyckte att det var underbart! Vad är nu AirServer? Har bara haft AirServer i 2 dagar och har redan hunnit testa lite grann, samt har en massa idéer i huvudet. Här är mina startappar som jag tänkte använda som inspiration till kollegor: Explain everything; Bra som wb, kan lägga in en webbläsare som man kan ha aktiv eller rita på.

Top 8 video communication apps for learning on the iPad The iPad camera has so much potential in classrooms, however the camera app itself is limited in its features. With his experience of using video apps with students, Nik Peachey lists the best ones for enabling teachers to add annotations and commentaries to recorded video, and use video for creating journals, storytelling and speaking practice. One of the great things about mobile devices such as tablets, iPads and phones is that most modern devices have good quality cameras and microphones built in. This opens up a really wide range of potential for communication and speaking practice that used to be such a struggle to organise on older laptops and desktop computers. App developers have also been quick to exploit the potential of this powerful tool and in this post I'd like to look at some of the tools that have been created and how they can be used for language development.

App Synergy: How To Combine AR And QR Sorry if you were expecting Lenny. He’s not here right now. He asked me to do a guest post for App Synergy. Quick Response (QR) codes seem to be everywhere. Anything from magazines to bananas can have them. While QR codes are quite common, something less common is Augmented Reality (AR). Today we’ll take a look at combining AR and QR, using primarily two free apps: Aurasma Lite and Zapper QR Code Scanner. Once you get a feel for using them, the possibilities are aplenty. Here’s how it works: Step 1: Design Your Card The App Store is filled with any number of drawing apps. I used SketchBook Express because it’s a free option. Be creative. You can always browse around the Hallmark or Cards’ apps if you’re feeling stuck on inspiration. Step 2: Give Your Card An Aura Now it’s time to augment your card with reality. Upon first opening the app you’ll see a welcome screen that asks if you have an image in front of you with the Aurasma logo. You’ll be ready to do one for real the next time.

En friluftsdag med IKT Onsdagen den 15 oktober, kl. 9.30 ska 75 elever från Furutropskolan F-6 i Vinslöv ut och "turfa". Det är Thomas Clementsson, som kontaktat speltillverkarna och fått möjlighet att bygga ett eget event för vår skola. Turf i korthet: Med hjälp av gps:en i din telefon förflyttar du dig mellan zoner som visas tydligt på en karta i telefonen. När du står i en zon laddar en mätare på displayen, och efter ca 30 sekunder så ändrar zonen färg till grön, vilket betyder att du nu äger zonen. När man tagit en zon får man en poängsumma, och därefter en viss poäng per timme. Du får poäng från zonen ända tills någon annan spelare tar zonen av dig. Här berättar Thomas om hur Turf går till för klass 5c: Har du fler funderingar, här kommer frågor och svar om Turf:
