Using Augmented Reality to Bring your School to Life

You can use Augmented Reality apps like Aurasma to extend learning and sharing beyond the walls of your classroom and into the hallways.  Create a "moving picture" Harry Potter type feel to displays in your hallway, books, and even structures.  The imagination is the limit with this.  Feature student learning, talk about artwork, share clips of music or videos from your classroom, even help your students with homework.  All you need is an app like Aurasma to make it work. 

Check out the resources below to learn more.
