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.
