Using Augmented Reality with Aurasma


We wrote stories about ourselves called ‘Mé Féin’, took photos and inserted them in the stories and printed them off. We pinned them up on the classroom wall.
We used these sheets as trigger images.
Then we made videos about ourselves. We got one classmate to interview us and one to film. It was great fun. Then we uploaded the videos as ‘overlays’.
Finally, we used Aurasma to create ‘auras’ for each one so that when you use an iPad to look at our pictures and stories (the trigger images) on our classroom wall, the seem to become alive, (just like Harry Potter’s newspapers), and you can see our videos.
In this video, we see some students showing others how it all works.
