After a tip-off from @dughall on Twitter I downloaded Aurasma-the Augmented Reality App.

The whole lot has snowballed from there!

    Yes many years ago there used to be the concept keyboard (http://bit.ly/jYaHdz) and then the software equivalents. This is a “virtual” augmented concept keyboard of sorts. This will revolutionise how learning takes place but step back a bit and think. When we used concept keyboards a lot of thought was put into how the children could interact and create their own resources. So, for example, in the early days of video we used to get a number of older children to draw phonics on A2 pieces of paper with reception children and make them bright and colourful. We than videoed them (all of a couple of seconds) and put the vid files linked to the software / hardware triggers linked to the combination of letters. Younger children could come up and press the letters again and again and up would pop their friends and themselves saying the phonics. The whole “process” involved the children as co-creators and makers of the software. I don’t yet know how this works as I only have a very early iPhone but I can guess making the augmented triggers is going to be easy. How wonderful – I reckon together with the iPad this will eliminate literacy problems so I’d make a call here for highly contextualised learning activities around making resources so that it’s an entirely win win thing. Incredibly exciting!!!

      Thanks for taking the time to comment Leon.

      Mobile learning and AR has been going this way for some time-it was just a matter of time before the technology became reality and educators had enough of the equipment to implement this.

      Exciting times indeed for those early adopters that can see the amazing potential and do something about it.
