Introduce your students to the authors of children’s books with these amazing Authors Alive! Aurasma Book Cards. Students use their iPods, iPads, or iPhones to scan the photo on each card and watch the author “come alive” on their screen. Each photo features one book written by that author. The augmented reality app called Aurasma links each photo to a short video clip of the author. Students can see the real people who write these books and learn how their lives connect to their stories.
Authors in this set include: Tedd Arnold, Nikki Grimes, David A. Adler, Jane Yolen, Seymour Simon, Grace Lin, Mo Willems, Chris Van Allsburg, Mark Teague, Bill Martin Jr., Katherine Paterson, Jacqueline Woodson, Eve Bunting, Jon Scieszka, Eric Rohmann, David Shannon, Laurence Yep, Laura V. Seeger, Rosemary Wells, and Chris Raschka.
This first set of 20 book cards also includes directions for downloading the Aurasma app and linking to my channel to access the videos. While I have tested each photo before presenting them to you, please contact me if you have any questions or problems accessing the videos. Be sure to follow the directions on the instruction cards. Also be sure your printouts are clear; they can be run off on regular copy paper or card stock, and then laminated to protect the images.
