Today I witnessed one of the greatest uses of Augmented Reality using the app Aurasma (previously posted about and reviewed). One of the classrooms in our school, led by Susan Yzquierdo along with her dedicated team, highlighted the successes and learned skills of their students by making a living bulletin board. Parents were able to scan their child’s picture on the board and then a video played showing them performing the skills that they learned. Some of these skills included children with autism and related disabilities being flexible in a group, reading independently, and communicating wants and needs for the very first time. The crystal clear videos that popped through the still images on Aurasma were only blurred by the tears of joy in family members eyes.
