#aurasma #augmentedreality #ipad app, a new way to see and interact with the world and #mlearning

Aurasma is an augmented reality app that’s changing the way millions of people see and interact with the world.
· Bring tagged images, objects and even physical locations to life with interactive digital content, such as video, animations and 3D scenes, we call Auras
· Look out for our ‘A’ logo in newspapers, magazines, books and on product packaging and clothing– wherever you spot the ‘A’, there’s an Aura for you to discover
· Use the map feature to discover Auras at nearby locations
· Browse the ‘explore’ and ‘featured’ sections of the app to find the latest and most popular Auras
· Use the simple tools within the app to create your own Auras and share them with friends and other Aurasma users
· Create Auras by choosing from thousands of digital animations already on the platform or alternatively use your own photos and videos 
· Most popular user-generated Auras include adding 3D dinosaurs to your street, sending a video message on a greetings card, leaving hidden clues in a treasure hunt, adding instructional information to a machine and augmenting text books and project work in education
Use Aurasma to get creative and share digital content in a new way. There’s a whole world out there to tag.

There is so much potential using Augmented Reality, it is something that I am really excited by as a teacher as a way to engage and encourage the children to be creative.


Using the app Aurasma, the children uploaded their videos as their overlay and used theirword clouds from a few lessons before as their trigger image. The way it works is that by hovering the iPad over the trigger image will load the Augmented Reality through the Aurasma app.
