This is our Augmented Reality Alphabet Book!  We think it is very cool!  We have been working with the AR Flashcards app a lot this year!  This book is a compilation of a lot of work!

The children each choose a letter of the alphabet and then scoured the room looking for items that begin with their letter’s sound.

P is for

 

b3 is for

 

Once they had a good collection of items we arranged them around the trigger picture for that letter in the AR Flashcards app!  Then we opened up the app and took the picture of their collections when the trigger was activated!   Very cool!

Then we used the Strip Designer app to import the pictures to create a page for each alphabet letter.  We wanted to make an alphabet book to share with the kindergarten class!

H is for

We made a variety of pages using these pictures.  We made pages with the trigger picture and other pictures using Doodle Buddy as well as taking pictures of items in the classroom or the school!  Once the students got started they wanted to make more than one!

G is for

s4

Then we decided that we needed the label the objects in our pictures.  We used the text function in Strip Designer to add the captions to our pictures.

Then we took all the pages and imported them into another app called Explain Everything!

After we had the book put together with all the pages we had to record our voices on each page.  Each student recorded their page!

Once the book was complete we saved it to the camera roll!

Then we watched and listened to our book!  Too cool!

I uploaded the book to my channel on Youtube so we can share it with everyone!  We think we might have made the very first Augmented Reality alphabet book!

Way too much fun!

Space Travel AR Style!

We took all the pages we had created about Space using the Strip Designer app and put them together to create a book using the Explain Everything app!

Then the students recorded the captions on each page and we saved the project to the camera roll.  I uploaded the video to Youtube so we can share it with everyone.

We wrote stories about a space trip using the pictures we created using the Spacecraft 3D app.  Each child  choose the spacecraft that they wanted to have their picture taken with and then posed with their choice.

I took their picture within the app with the trigger activated and we used this picture as the spark to trigger some creative writing!

 

I also attached the space video using Aurasma to the creative writing project!

They wrote and they wrote and they wrote!

 

The trigger for the movie is on the cover of their project.   I will send home the aura I created in Aurasma via email.
