School Board Members Honored at January Meeting

Using a virtual-reality app called Aurasma, students created videos to highlight items implemented at the school through board vote, such as new gym floors, bigger buses and the best teachers. The videos are linked to an item in the room, which becomes the “tag,” and then a mobile device is held over the item to activate and play the video. Even better, the students created coke-bottle biography dolls designed to look like each board member, and students used another app, called ChatterPix, to turn the dolls into animated characters on video who ‘introduced’ themselves.
