Open House Fun with Augmented Reality!


We had a great time getting ready to share our projects for our Open House evening.  The children practiced using Aurasma to share their projects.  We love using augmented reality apps to share our projects.


It was fun to see how excited they were opening their projects and taking a look at their friend’s projects too.


I loaded all the projects on our class channel so the students could view any of the auras we had created.


Each snowman triggers the corresponding video that we created using Chatterpix.  You should be able to use the pictures on our Snowman project page to view all of the auras if you follow our channel.


Our channel is called mrsantonsclass.  If you open the Aurasma app and search for our channel using the search option our channel should come up.  If you follow our channel all of our cool auras should be accessible.  You could also use the trigger images we created  to view our iMovie trailers about Dinosaurs and Space that we created using the pictures we created using the Walking with Dinosaurs app, NASA Spacecraft 3D, and our new favorite go-to app – Green Screen by Do-ink.  The trigger image is embedded on the creative writing pages.  We linked the movie trailers to the projects using Aurasma!  You should be able to view the movie trailers at home using the Aurasma app and the trigger image of the dinosaur or the spacecraft!  Just remember to follow our channel!


  We have talking dinosaur pictures and talking snowmen!



The children also got a chance to share their books that they have created.

Here are a few samples!

We used a lot of different apps to create our projects.  Our favorite apps to create these books are My Story and Explain Everything.  




We had a great turnout for our Open House evening!  Thank you to everyone who made the special effort to come back to school in the evening to view our projects! It was greatly appreciated!  Thanks to Isaak’s, Abrielle’s and Rayva’s Moms for helping me get the refreshments ready!


Rayva’s Mom made some awesome cupcakes for the event. Very yummy!

We shared a Photo Story about all of our projects too!  We hope you enjoyed viewing the projects!

Sorry I didn’t get any pictures during the Open House!  But we were very busy!
