Using Aurasma for the First Time!

Yesterday afternoon I spent some time getting the Aurasma app set up on our iPads !

Aurasma is the world’s leading augmented reality platform. It uses advanced image and pattern recognition to blend the real-world with rich interactive content such as videos and animations! Sounds super cool, right?!?! Today, the kiddos used the Aurasma app on their iPads during reading centers! The students absolutely loved it! They kept asking if it was real and were completely blown away by what the app could do! It's a great educational tool that enhances the content learned in the classroom! It takes learning with technology to a whole new level!

Today we explored some alphabet cards that I purchased on teachers pay teachers. The children used their iPad to hover over the alphabet card. Then, like magic, the animal on the card talked and showed the student how to correctly form the letter! After that, a cool video all about that specific letter popped up on the screen! I loved watching their reactions! Their engagement level was at an all time high!

Soon we will be creating our own "Auras" to share with you! They will be Aurasma  experts by the time they leave kindergarten! :)
