Came across this post this morning about how to use Augmented Reality in the classroom:
I had played around with the idea of Augmented Reality last spring, when I attened a librarian conference (yes, we have those) and someone did a fascinating presentation on the app History Pin. My initial thought would be that it would be a wonderful too for Open House, where the student guides could be equipped with an iPad and use it at each stop. 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?
