Our New Interactive Reading Display!

I am a massive fan of Augmented Reality! I have previously blogged about it here and here. It can be used to inspire, share and enhance learning in a number of ways. The latest way in which we have used Augmented Reality is to create an interactive reading display.

The initial inspiration came from this tweet I stumbled across on twitter -

And so have created a very similar display thanks to the wonderful staff at Davyhulme Primary -

However we decided to make ours a little differently. I asked all the children to create a Tellagami review of their favourite book using the cover as the background. Each cover was then printed and used as a trigger image to create Auras using the app Aurasma. We also had some fun reworking some of our favourite pop songs to try and promote reading for anyone who scans our display.

You can watch how it all works here -

If you like this idea and others on the blog remember I can visit your school to deliver bespoke training on a range of ways to use technology to raise standards across the curriculum - more details here.


  1. Fantastic idea Mr P! Inspired me to have a try with our students:
