Aurasma is an augmented reality experience
Create your own 'Auras' by taking a photo of an object or picture, then embed a picture or video within that first object or picture
Math: Design a scoot game by creating auras. If you are studying multiplication you can have students create pictures of arrays. Then students can create a video sharing a word problem that goes with the arrays.
Language Arts: Create an aura for the books your students write. Take a picture of their illustration and then put a video of your student reading that page inside of it.
Social Studies: If your students are studying a particular landmark, have them print out pictures of them. Then have students create videos explaining what the landmarks are and where the landmarks can be located. These videos can be placed in the picture of each landmark when making the aura.
Science: Design word wall cards for science content. Have students create videos showcasing each vocabulary word. Students can put the videos they created into the auras.
