I've been working with our school librarian to add some augmented reality to our books. Our school's book fair is next week, and we wanted students and parents to have an opportunity to hear from other students about specific books. The librarian took pictures of the book covers she wanted students to review and recorded them giving a 40-60 second summary of the book. Then, she passed the pictures and videos along to me. I created trigger images from the book covers and linked it to the video review (who says you can't judge a book by its cover?!). Now, when students/parents/teachers look at the book through the Aurasma app on their iOS or Android device, they will see one of our students reviewing the book title. We will also put a little logo for augmented reality to indicate that the book could be scanned.
