The ProjectStep #1:
I contacted our amazing art teacher and asked if she would design a Valentine project that students could use to trigger the augmented reality video. Of course she said yes and helped our students create an amazing art project.
While the students were completing their Valentine projects in art, we started working on a writing project in our classroom. Students created a graphic organizer and identified items for their topic, "20 Things I Love".
Students edited their writing and prepared it to publish.
Students used the Chatterpix app to record a video of their writing.
fun. Students take a picture of themselves, draw a line for their mouth, add character features (crowns, hats, or glasses), and record their video. Check out the Chatterpix website.
The video was inserted into the Aurasma app.
We created our art display in the hallway.
The students used the Aurasma app to watch the video with their parents during student led conferences.
What do I LOVE about augmented reality?
- I love the collaboration among our teachers to connect classroom activities such as writing beyond the 4 walls of our individual classrooms.
- I love how it allowed our students to connect their artwork to writing in our classroom.
- I love the excitement of students as they were creating.
- I love the excitement of parents (and the students) as the students "showed off" and took ownership of their work.
