Aurasma app is a new way to see and interact with the world. Aurasma is available on iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. Aurasma is an augmented reality app that’s changing the way that classroom displays can come alive. Adding an effortless way to make displays more interactive and improving an otherwise unchanged way of displaying students’ work and information within the classroom. Aurasma is the only application that lets you create and share your own augmented reality. This is one of the reasons why Aurasma is such an excellent app to engage students in the learning environment. Below is one of the ways that I have used Aurasma to bring one of the Literacy posters to life in my classroom.
Using the simple tools within the app, you can create your own Auras (as above) and share them with other Aurasma users and therefore anybody with the app can view the Auras that you make. This can lead to some awesome interactive displays. If you do not wish to make your own then you can choose from thousands of digital animations already on the platform.
There are so many ways in which this app could be used in education and I would love to hear some other ways that Aurasma is being used to enrich the learning environment.
