Learning in 3D via Aurasma

Aurasma is an augmented reality (AR) application in which users can overlay a video or image on top of anything that a tablet, cell phone, or mobile device can scan with a camera. Aurasma scans an object, much like a QR code reader. Educators are incorporating augmented reality via Aurasma to create layers of digital information on top of the physical world that can be viewed through an iOS or Android device.

Aurasma in Action: Educators are using Aurasma to create interactive word walls. Students record themselves using an iPad providing definitions to vocabulary located on a classroom word wall. Afterwards, students use the Aurasma app to create an interactive pop up screen playing the video content.

Digital Learning Platform: Aurasma is an interactive application in which students engage to create authentic tasks and products.

  1. I recently attended a professional development that introduced us to this App. I am excited for the many possibilities of using this in my classroom. The kids are going to love it!
