app. I've been experimenting with the Aurasma app today and it is fairly straightforward to use and I think it could be used in lots of exciting ways. Apparently my friend had heard talk of using it to have book trailers play when a certain book cover is hovered over and this sounds very cool indeed. Some ideas I had:
Book cover triggers to student book review videos - nothing better than the recommendation of peers!
If possible links to authors reading aloud from the particular book - for example the video of the wonderful Michael Rosen reading We're Going on a Bear Hunt
Posters in the library linking to videos of student librarians explaining the rules of the library
Display of teacher/librarians favourite books with videos of each of them talking about their reasons attached to 'their' book cover
Trigger objects around the school used as a treasure hunt
Holding app on device over bunsen burner to get video experiments
On a personal note I'd love to buy my nephews & nieces books and then let their parents hover with their phones & discover a video of me reading the book to them - or talking about why I like the book. I'd like to create Auras for all the special Christmas decorations on our family tree too .....but that's just because I love Christmas! Could be a good way to document family history though. Just a few quick ideas but I'm enjoying using Aurasma and think it has real potential.
