At the beginning of the year, we learned about poetry. Students wrote bio poems, ABC poems, acrostic poems, onomatopoeia poems, and haiku. I was blown away at how creative everyone is! The students were very excited to share these poems with everyone in a very futuristic way called augmented reality. Augmented reality or AR is a technology that superimposes a computer-generated image on a user's view of the real world. Students typed the poems onto a presentation in Google Drive. From there, we turned the presentation slides into jpeg images using Preview. Finally, we uploaded
If you want to view the poems you will need a smartphone or tablet. You will need to download a free app called Layar.
