AURASMA - Click and On With the Show!

If you have ever wanted to point your iPad to an object and watch a video that goes with that object now you can. Think about our big wolf statue in front of the library with the words "Expect Respect" beneath it. If you used the Aurasma application to connect a picture of that wolf to a video kids made about how to be respectful you could click the Aurasam App on your iPad and watch that video. All are welcome to attend an April 28th Lunch and Learn as Jeanne and Jess explain how to use Aurasma to create Auras that will supercharge your instruction.
