Augmented reality takes a static, flat image or object and superimposes a video or another image over it. Take a look at ColarApp.com and download the corresponding app. Print out and color the free pages, hover over the page and watch it come to life around you. I can hear elementary school students giggling with amazement right now. Don't just hover over the image, move around it. The dynamic image is 3D. You can do the same with Chromville.com or the app Flashcards AR. Another option is to take a picture and add a video to the image using Aurasma. Then share your Aurasma channel with a QR code.
Currently we have 6th grade GT students creating a map of the US using AR. Each time the student scans the outline of the state, a video will pop up with a student giving some basic information on the state, such as the capital and a fun fact. These same students are creating their own alphabet AR flash cards for 4/5K-1 students. Each card will have students giving the pronunciation of the letter and a example of a word that begins with that letter. The students are creating material for students and having a blast doing it.
In 6th grade, we had students create "Wanted Posters" where, when you scan over the poster, the student appears and takes on the persona of the wanted villain. A fifth grade class did a science fair with bulletin boards and when scanned, the student appears and demonstrates the experiment. In a high school science class, the teacher took his black and white worksheet and superimposed the color image of a cell over the black and white image. Now students could see the different parts of the cell instead of guessing with the black and white image.
What can be done is endless. What will happen is incredible. Students learn to summarize; students provide details they might have missed in a static document; students explain their own learning. This is truly exciting. For instructions on how to use Aurasma, please click here. I know you will enjoy using it.
