Aurasma: Augmented Reality for Your Classroom

By:Ann Elliott

aurasma“After weeks of comparing reviews and conducting trials in my classroom, I can say unreservedly that Aurasma offers the best augmented reality (AR) experience for classrooms of any iOS or Android app. The Aurasma app is more versatile and classroom-friendly than any AR app; it enables teachers to bring curriculum to life, turning almost any environment into a classroom or object into a lesson. Read on to find out why no app does augmented reality like Aurasma.

 

Methodology

I began my tests by downloading three augmented reality apps — Layar, Anatomy 4D, and Aurasma v. 3.4.0 — on my iPhone 6 and iPad. I also borrowed my husband’s Samsung Galaxy S5 for a few days to test the apps on an Android phone. I used the apps in my 7th-grade English classroom for two weeks. My students used them during the second week so I could get their feedback too. I then assessed each app for its educational utility, user-friendliness, and efficacy.” To read further please click here:  http://www.edudemic.com/aurasma-for-your-classroom/
