BNHS Aurasma Presentation: More Trigger Images

*This post is part of a larger presentation performed in front of a live studio audience πŸ™‚

In ALL cases you will either be using the Aurasma app (& Tap the magnifying icon at the bottom of the screen in the Aurasma App, search for & follow the Thrasymachus, Compher Social Sciences, and Northwest HS Channels) or the Yo2Mo app to view the images, videos, resources, lessons, etc. we (or others) have layered over the following jpegs. This is “Layered Learning” at its best. This is the ARevolution!

You can find the Prezi presentation here.

Be sure to download the Aurasma and Apparmo “Yo2Mo Window” apps. Both are powered by Aurasma, but each will allow you to see different images below come to life. Remember, just like Twitter, you must follow our channels to see the magic happen.

Aurasma will be needed for our created auras and the “Yo2Mo” app will be needed for the commercial images you’ll see below.

In either case, I AM NOT responsible for your mind being blown. Take care.

These were my first incredible experiences with augmented reality. Focus your Aurasma enabled device on the two bills.


The following are Yo2Mo goodies that can be accessed using their “Window” app which is powered by Aurasma. I’ve also left more images and handouts on each of your tables.

My students did a demographic study of Florida and made a video acting as campaign managers who suggested to their candidate how best to win the state in the 2016 Presidential election. We layered their videos on the “F”, the “R”, the “sun” and the “A”.

Using Aurasma and augmented reality, a video is layered on their fine work as they reflect on their work. They speak on what they learned and what stuck out most to them during their project.

Using Aurasma, students watch the video and come to understand why I used the image below. Double tap the video and bring the video to full screen. Single tap the video and you’ll be sent to the students assignment based on the video!

This Aura helps build school moral and a feeling of community. Every place you see our school’s seal, through Aurasma, you get to hear our school song.


This Aura brings up examples of supply and demand curves. What needs to be made more engaging than economics!? *Apologies to Mr. Deel and Mr. Harris.


Instead of reading about boring biomes in a text book, use this Aura and have students actually visit each of the biomes in person! One of my favorite Auras!


Have you ever been to Paris, France? Use Aurasma on this image and you can claim you have. Can you image an elementary school aged class looking at the world through this Aura?!?!?!
