How I Use It
I used Aurasma in my classroom to accompany my biography writing unit. Instead of just writing and reading the biographies written by students, we were able to bring them to life! The Aurasma app allowed my students to hear the stories with tone and inflection rather than just reading the words on a page! It replaced our typical presentation and we were able to offer our creations to students throughout the entire building for listening- not just our class. It really enhanced our writing & reflection.
My Take
I think the use of Augmented Reality is a great tool. It allows independent learners to flourish- as well as those that need more guidance. I am going to incorporate Aurasma into my poetry unit and would ultimately like to see it used with the writing pieces in place of traditional presentations. It offers a wider variety for student reflection.
