Kudos to Mrs. Walton for incorporating technology into her classroom. She learned about the app, Aurasma, and augmented reality at the GaETC conference and how she could use it in the classroom to motivate and excite the students. To learn more about this app and how it may be used in your classroom stop by and see Mrs. Walton for a free demonstration!
