How to create Augmented reality in your Classroom using Aurasma

A 6min Screencast to demonstrate how to create Augmented Reality from an iPad using Aurasma App.
John Pearce's insight:

Nathan Jones aka @elearnjones has been doing some great work with his students using Aurasma and other associated apps and software, (check out his Junior School Vimeo channel and other resources). In this movie he leads you through in very clear and simple terms how to go through the process of setting up and using Aurasma in your classroom. Also note the use of the Tellagami app to add interest to the video :).

Choose Your Next Pair of Glasses Using 3D and an iPad

Choose Your Next Pair of Glasses Using 3D and an iPad | mrpbps iDevices | Scoop.it
An app from Glasses.com uses augmented reality and a 3D rendering of your face to help you choose the right eyeglasses.
John Pearce's insight:

I think we are going to see much more of this sort of marketing, (see Augment at http://augmentedev.com/home.php#home ;). This will of course drive even more folk to using devices and hasten the change to online shopping.

"Check out this VIDEO of Augmented Reality in the Science Classroom! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xInuGQRBPTc I just finished week one of the new school year.  What an exciting four days!"

John Pearce's insight:

A post about how one teacher has begun using Aurasma in her science class. Whilst the actual task described is not hugely revolutionary, the video is quite instructive with students wearing headphones and the post contains some important tips on using the Aurasma app.

ColAR Uses Augmented Reality To Bring Your Kid’s Drawing To Life | TechCrunch

ColAR Uses Augmented Reality To Bring Your Kid’s Drawing To Life | TechCrunch | mrpbps iDevices | Scoop.it
I would've written this earlier, but I was busy picking pieces of my mind up off the floor. I get to write about cool stuff all day, but this... this is incredible.

colAR is the coloring book of the future.
John Pearce's insight:

Okay so at last we have a "crossover" app that takes something we've done in classrooms for years now and, with a bit of technomagic we can make it something else. Though some might argue that animating colouring in sheets is a bit 'dinky', it's a couple of extra's that this app advances as well as where this might lead to which is most interesting.

 

If you can get in and grab the app before July 28 then you can access the first set of colouring-in trigger sheets, (which are needed to make the app 'come to life'), for free.

Augmented Reality Is Going Mobile--and Coming to a Classroom Near You -- THE Journal | mrpbps iDevices | Scoop.it
What was once a futuristic technology is now giving students an immersive way to learn from the world around them.
John Pearce's insight:

This is a really useful intro to the world of augmented reality. Whilst the examples provided are useful it is also fair to say that there is a whole lot more happening out there regarding AR in education.
