Augmented reality in Spanish classes

Am very happy with the interactive displays my two Year 7 classes made with Aurasma. Having learnt the joy of conjugating regular verbs in the Present tense, they had to work in pairs to choose their own verb, then make a poster with a blank frame where they then set up a video explaining how to conjugate that verb using a particular subject pronoun. Students used a variety of iPad apps for this. Some used Explain Everything, some used the video camera to film themselves talking or moving bits of paper around, others used stop motion apps. All then uploaded their videos to our Aurasma channel. ¬°Fenomenal!

Proud of my Year 8 students! Their brief was to work in pairs to create a poster of their chosen French town or city, incorporating one or two windows where videos would play when scanned with the Aurasma app, revealing narrated slideshows of them in the role of food, hotel or travel writers…and applying the recently learned Perfect Tense in a creative context. The students loved doing this and the results literally speak for themselves!
