Listen to the episode

On Friday I set up several tables that looked like the following
Augmented Reality Teacher Tinker Time is ready to go! #AR #coffeechugcafe #augmentreality #Framatic

I sent out the following email to all staff to come down to my room for Tinker Time

Just a reminder that Friday during periods 6,7,8 I will be hosting Teacher Tinker time. We will be looking at Augmented Reality

If you have a smartphone or tablet it would be great if you could download the following apps so you can begin to experiment and learn so we can create something very cool in the following weeks.

Aurasma
Layar
Blippar
colAR
AR Flashcards
Brain Scan

For Aurasma if you want to follow me (Coffeechug) and another teacher I know (pvjhscience) I can show you some classroom examples.

See you tomorrow.

Teach Like A Pirate Poster + Augment Reality = Awesome Classroom Poster FINAL VERSION

A few days ago I shared a poster I created with the help of some online #coffeechugPLN peeps. I have since tweaked the poster as I realized the missing ingredient was not in the poster.

I have also added a new AR element which will be the video I use for the Back to School night and the first few weeks of school.

I have big plans for this poster. Adding mysteries, clues, scavenger hunts, etc. I look forward to this being a great addition to my classroom this year. My goal will be to have many people involved beyond students. I think it will be a load of fun.

Here is the poster

In case you need a larger version I uploaded the poster to Flickr as well as on my wiki where I share my classroom tools(it will be loaded up shortly).

Go ahead and use Aurasma and zoom in on the poster. Let me know what you think. I hope it accomplishes the goal of my classroom and what to be prepared for which is…… you never quite know!

Feedback is always welcome. I will be printing this out next week and planning my mysteries to go along with this poster. Let the fun begin!
