Tech Talk Thursday
March 12th, 2015 - Room 17 at Lunch
Tech Talk Schedule and Communication
So, I am going to try this. A weekly reminder email of the topics. These flyers will also be stored online and I will create a local page that collects them all as well as future topics.
If am am really nice to Laurie, I bet I could get a link in your Veracross teacher portal. ;-)
Topics for Thursday, March 12th
Show Me the Apps!
There is no easy answer for this, but I will share my favorite resources with you. I am hoping this is a two way conversation where you bring your own resources to share!
We will also discuss tips and tricks for evaluating iPad apps and other technology resources.
Aurasma - Augmented Reality in the Classroom
Put simply for our purposes:
- Take an iPad running an Augmented reality app
- Point the camera at a real world object or setting
- Virtual information is layered on top of the real world (images, a video, animation and so on) on the iPad screen
If I did a poor job explaining, here is a brief video that will do a better job...
Now that you have seen it, the possibilities are endless... Don't you just want to scream every time you hear that phrase? At our Tech Talk we will look at interesting ways of using augmented reality in the classroom.
- If you want to try it out: Download the Aurasma iPad app
I will have some examples for you to try on Thursday.
