When comparing musical instruments and sorting them into orchestral families, how can we have our students actually see and hear the instrument being played to make the aural/visual connection? The magic of Aurasma brings music to life: It’s a Game Changer in the music classroom!!
Aurasma Brings Music to Life: It’s a Game Changer!
You can read about and explore other ways I’ve used Aurasma:
- Recorder Wall of Fame,
- Mustache Composers,
- the Recorder Repair Shop,
- and making incredible France interactive bulletin boards on steroids.
Augmented reality is my go-to tech tool when I need something engaging and memorable. Aurasma looks so much more difficult to use than it actually is, yet it provides maximum learning impact in my classroom.
Problem and Solution
How nice it would be to have orchestral instruments to demonstrate for my students; I used to play the clarinet, the oboe and the bassoon, but I no longer have access to those instruments. I suppose showing a video would work, but that’s not very engaging nor unique. We could create QR codes to listen to musical examples, but that’s so ‘been there, done that!’ I wish I could get the high school band students to come down to demonstrate more often, but our schedules rarely sync.
