App makes bulletin boards come alive at Green school - New Jersey Herald

App makes bulletin boards come alive at Green school - New Jersey Herald | Education Matters - (tech and non-tech) | Scoop.it

"The bulletin boards throughout Green Hills School may look normal — with colorful paper and pictures covering them — but hover a tablet or smartphone loaded with a special app over them and they turn into learning tools, complete with videos and interactive lessons.

 

“I didn't want there to be all these passive areas throughout the school,” Superintendent John Nittolo said. “I wanted there to be chances for people to interact, to manipulate, to find info that changes so it's not static.”

 

The brainchild of Louis Rossi, the school's mathematics and ThinkSTEM coach, each bulletin board — technically known as “Augmented Reality Interactive Boards” — gives students an opportunity to learn away from the classroom."

Very cool!  It's great to see technology used in innovative ways to improve the educational experience for kids.

Melissa Marshall's curator insight, August 26, 9:06 PM

Use of QR codes and Aurasma can create an augmented reality where students simply need to hold their iPad up to an image or code to receive information. These are great for scavenger hunts and any activity students need to gather ideas, but here is an idea to use them with bulletin boards. This is hopefully something we can do in the Library soon!

KB...Konnected's insight:

This back-to-school season, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation wants to celebrate teachers and recognize the amazing work they do. To help make sure classrooms have what they need, the Foundation is offering to fund 50% of nearly any project on DonorsChoose.org -- if citizen philanthropists like you provide the rest.

Curious what inspired Bill and Melinda Gates to underwrite the first site-wide match offer on DonorsChoose.org? Read Bill Gates's post explaining why.

This offer is only available until Sunday, August 24th, so support a classroom project today! Just click "Get Started" below to find a project that inspires you. Or click "Pick a project for me" to have us select a high-need classroom.

Let's make this the best back-to-school teachers and students have ever had!

It also gives them an avenue through which they can practice multimodal expressions and present information in numerous ways.This multimodality in communicating information does not only help students understand topics much better and at a deeper level but is also an elemental feature of the 21st century learning."
