Augmented Reality

This week has been a world of edtech discovery! I was listening to the educast show about all things Google and there was a Shout Out (new word I also just learnt) for the Two Guys Show. They talked about the game changing apps of which Augmented Reality (AR) came up. I tried AR Flashcards with my K1 class and my son Samuel they loved it! Now I want to explore more AR apps like Colar Mix.

It would seem there are some amazing opportunities to use these AR apps in the classroom and they are a great way to utilize those iPads! You can make your own using Arasma!  With the help of the Two Guys Show I opened up a studio account with Arasma, after playing around with the site I made my first aura and channel which you can follow via a mobile device at Stephen Hesketh’s channel. But better still visit Brad and Drew’s amazing blog the Two Guys Show for some great ideas!!

The Anatomy 4D app is another great AR app for teaching human biology which augments a image of the human body that allows each mystery to be viewed apart or as a whole. This app would be great for both secondary school and med school!
