The problem with History Pin was that it uses google maps to anchor the photo to the location and that was not specific enough for a school tour.

However, Aurasma might work for something like that, as well as a student-created scavenger hunt for a history project. The teacher who wrote the blog post above got his students to make posters which serves as the anchor to a movie that would be picked up by the aurasma app when scanned.

So many possibilities, don’t you think?
