Augmented reality appears to have potential in a class that has one to one devices. I would like to use augmented reality for exhibition night at school. The students’ posters and hard copy projects would serve as the secret image to unlock a student video. I am thinking of sending a message to parents about downloading the application on their mobile devices before attending the exhibition. It would be neat to use in a class where all students have devices. Currently, at my site the teacher is the only one with a device. If all students had devices, I would like to use this a form of creating virtual bulletin boards. Instead of the teacher creating class posters for specific subjects, I would have students create short videos or haiku decks that contain important information. I would make simple labels with the title of the poster and then let the students create the virtual poster. After the virtual posters, I would have the students have a gallery walk to learn about the different posters. The aurasma application would be ideal to replace science posters. Another way to use the application would be to create a timeline to go over historical events. I would have students recreate important events on video and tag them to a date on the timeline. There are so many projects that be showcased using this application.
