Kindergarten teacher, Karlyn Adler (@karlynadler), has been toying with the Aurasma augmented reality app since December. For KA’s parent share last week, she captured video of the kids explaining their recent work and uploaded these clips to their class’s Auasma channel. Parents used iPads with headphones to access these videos when the iPad faced key places on the wall to trigger the video overlay. (Katie Pabarue (@kpabarue) has been using Aurasma with her 1st graders to capture delightful book reviews – I hope you have time to ask her about that too!)
Karlyn wrote about the experience on her professional portfolio here: http://karlynadler.wordpress.com/2014/06/03/using-aurasma-for-curriculum-shares-plus-a-how-to-kinderchat-edchat/
Speaking of Karlyn’s awesome new online space, below is a description for my Teach21 workshop on Wednesday, June 18. I hope you’ll join me for it or for the other two I proposed…
Our Portfolios, Ourselves: Crafting a Digital Portfolio of Your Work as an Educator
Curation is a 21st Century skill, so let’s show how to gather archival evidence of your professional endeavors and classroom projects in a digital portfolio. You’ll learn tips to get started: What to gather? Where to put it? How much will this cost? How to organize it? What settings to use? How to link or embed artifacts? How to connect with others?
This is a half-day workshop offered from 9:00 – 11:30. Please stay and join us for lunch.
