Augmented Reality to introduce Maths concept

In this Augmented Educational experiment I used 2 Apps. Aurasma and iMovie.

I wanted to introduce a Mathematics concept without actually telling the students what it was. This way they could analyse the iMovie trailer and collect evidence on what the concept might be. This way the students are already gaining knowledge on the topic even before they know what it is.

Then I created the worksheet to get the students to record their thinking as they were watching the Movie trailer.

Finally I put it all together in an Augmented Reality experience that made the viewing of the content seamless and engaging. The kids loved this concept, especially the searching for clues within the iMovie trailer! Here is the result:



  1. Augmented Reality has great potentials in education, and more excitingly, opens a novel realm for, and even redefines, eLearning. AR offers an innovative learning space by merging digital learning materials into the format of media with tools or objects, which are direct parts of the physical space, therefore creating "situated learning." Augmented Reality is well aligned with constructiveness notions of education where learners control their own learning, through the active interactions with the real and virtual environments.
