So this spring I was trying to be a tech savvy teacher and incorporate QR codes into the student art show.  I researched and looked and researched some more.  Each time feeling a bit overwhelmed and really disappointed.  I DIDN'T want an ugly QR code next to all this wonderful work my students had created.  I searched high and low for something more pleasant and attractive to add more content to the student show.  Well, I love watching the videos with Principal Gerry and his Southern accent and his humorous out look on education.  In one of his videos, he showed his music teacher's bulletin board and how she made it come to life with Aurasma.  I knew instantly that my search was over!  This was such a great tool.  I wasn't sure how many I would be able to produce, so initially I said I would do 3-5 per grade level.  This would have amounted to 18-30 kids with the Aurasma App added.  It was so easy that once I had the 5 per grade level, I kept adding more.  I ended up with 52.  Next year, my goal is to add all the kids who are in the art show.  So, if you are looking to add more to your art show, keep Aurasma in mind, I give it a thumbs up!!


  1. Principal Gerry cracks me up!!!!!!!!!!!! But OH MY GOSH, this Aurasma thing at your art show is super COOL!!!!!!
