Authors Sharing Their Work In Attention Grabbing Ways

MsTracy's Grade 5 students wrote their own exciting stories and illustrated their cover pages to match. They wanted to share their favorite parts of their stories with our school community so they filmed themselves reading their favorite parts and then turned it into an Aura by using Aurasma, an orgmented reality app. 
Parents were very interested in how it worked and enjoyed listening to student readings during our parent-teacher conference evening.
