    Description: Aurasma developers describe the tool as one that "brings together the physical and virtual world." This app is available in the iPhone format (useable on the iPad) and uses the camera, GPS, compass, accelerometer and internet connection to provide recognition of an image to merge an augmented reality action. What is complex is made simple the this app. For example, the user can simply snap a picture of a book cover and then indicate what video to play when the picture of the cover is viewed in Aurasma. Think of the possibilities when touring a museum--as the picture appears in the viewfinder of Aurasma, a tour guide could appear in the frame and give background information on the painting.

    ol as one that "brings together the physical and virtual world." This free app is available in the iPhone format (useable on the iPad) and uses the camera, GPS, compass, accelerometer and internet connection to provide recognition of an image to merge an augmented reality action. Aurasma utilizes augmented reality which means that as a predetermined picture or image is viewed it triggers something else to happen such as the viewing of a movie or the playing of an audio file. Teachers and students are using Aurasma to scan the cover a book and trigger the playing of a video file that contains a student created book trailer or a book blessing/review. Math teachers are creating auras that can be scanned to trigger a video showing the formula used to determine the area of the object.

    Before you begin you will want to prepare one item:
    Create a video with the built-in video camera on your iPad and save it to the camera roll, or download/save a video/audio file you want to play to your iPad camera roll/Photos. I sometimes download a video file on my computer an transfer it to my iPad via iPhoto or iTunes. It doesn’t matter how you do it, but you will need a video/audio file to use
    for your device:project. An example would be filming a student talking about a book they read with the iPad video camera.
    Steps to Begin Using Aurasma:
    Step #1: Download the Aurasma App from this website:
    http://www.aurasma.com
    Open
    or at the iTunes store:https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/aurasma/id432526396?mt=8
    {2-Aurasma-splashscreen.png} 2-Aurasma-splashscreen.png
    Step #2: Open
    the “Aurasma” App
    app on your device. You may be prompted to set-up an account.

    Step #3: Tap the Aurasma icon “A” located at the bottom center of your screen to access the main menu. (see at left)
    {aurasma1b.png} aurasma1b.png
    Step #4: A tabbed prompt window will appear with a number of options. You may be prompted to set-up an account. Tap the Aurasma icon “A” located at the bottom center of your screen to access the main menu.
    Step #5: Tap the “+” icon in the prompt window to select the video overlay you want to play when your trigger image comes in contact with the camera. (you need to have the video on your iPad in the camera roll to select it
    Step #6: Select “Device” from the tabs on your device and then the purple “+” square. You will
    {aurasma2.png} aurasma2.png
    be prompted to select your pre-recorded/downloaded video from the photo album or the web site blinkx (I haven’t used this before) or to record the video using the camera. It is much easier to use a video in your photo album.
    Step #7: Once you select your video clip by tapping “use” the video will be compressed for use. Name the overlay and tap the finish button.
    {aurasma3.png} aurasma3.png
    Step #8: Create an Aura for your overlay. You will be prompted to create an Aura—Tap OK and line up the image in the rectangular outline and snap the picture using the camera icon. (see at left)
    Step #9: Drag your video clip to the location you would like it to appear on the aura/picture and then tap the “>” icon on your
    {aurasma4.png} aurasma4.png
    device. Name the created Aurasma file and decide if you want it to be Private (only you or the user of your iPad can view/use) or Public (others can use). Lastly, tap the Finish button.
    Step #10: Try It! Line up your trigger (the image your put in the rectangular outline in Step #7) and you should see the video overlay play like magic.
    If you want to move beyond an Aura on your iPad and create an aura that is viewable from multiple devices that subscribe to your channel—try using the web site:

    Good NotesNote App for iPad
    Link to the App in the iTunes Store: 

    Background Information: Good Note is the free app that allows users to take notes by using a finger or stylus on the glass surface of the iPad. There are a number of note taking tools on the iPad but Good Note has a unique feature that allows the user to rest their palm on the glass if needed along with enlarging an area of the screen that is displayed near the bottom of the display for writing. The ability to add a .pdf and make notations on the document for saving and e-mailing is one of my favorite features of this app.
    Good Note works great as a note-taking and organizing tool. Each “note page" is added to a notebook or the user can create a new notebook if desired. The free version only allows for 2-3 notebooks.
    Steps to Begin Using Good Note:
    Step #1: Download the Good Note App: Notice the icon at the top of this page.

    Classroom Ideas for Use:

    Students will load a .pdf of a map from their social studies book and add annotations on the map marking the route of the explorers of the new world.
    Students will use a .pdf of the scoring rubric for their 6-trait writing to self assess their writing. The same rubric will be used to peer review one other piece of writing.

    Finding Shapes: have students take

    Samples:
