Your may have seen one Year 6 class using Aurasma to make some punctuation tips videos – you can see them here.
This week the other Year 6 class looked at making their own tutorial videos but focusing on different parts of sentence: Noun, adjectives etc.
We used a resource from Teacher’s Pet (a wonderful website full of resources.)
To make their demonstration videos the children used Explain Everything. With this app they were able to write, draw and discuss their understanding.
I left the children with little input for their videos other than it needs to demonstrate their understanding of how to use the punctuation mark.
This was a fantastic collaborative exercise and one the children approached with a focus and mature attitude. Once the videos were made and exported, the children made an aura using the app Aurasma.
The children used the posters mentioned earlier so to see their efforts please follow these steps and see watch their wonderful explanations:
- Download the app “Aurasma” onto your Smartphone.
- Open the app and press the A at the bottom of the screen.
- Click on the search option.
- Type in Davyhulme
and click the option.
- Press like to subscribe to our Auras.
- Open the app and scan one of our pictures, if it doesn’t work from your screen you may need to print them.
A work of warning, after trying to show the class the finished Auras, I found that the storage on my iPad had vanished. It seems that when you scan an aura it is stored on your iPad and can take up quite a lot of memory. So beware not to scan too many.
