Aurasma works by connecting a "trigger image" to content to be displayed. In this case, students opened the Aurasma app on the iPad. While strolling through the library, students would see pictures of points of interest in Quebec. When the iPad was pointed at one of these images, Aurasma would then play a video about the location. This allowed the students to take a walking tour of Quebec -- all from the comfort of our library at Pioneer!

At the very end of the project, students created their own travel brochure of French destinations. This was a great step, as all of the brochures were different. The brochures were different because students' interests in Quebec attractions varied.
Next year, we will be back to visiting Paris with our new group of French students. We look forward to visiting Quebec again in the future.
