I am finding my aura.
That is the phrase I choose to use, at least. It goes along with the free app Aurasma.
As I build my quest-based learning activities for my students, previewed at iGBL (and referred to in previous blog posts), I wonder if I have found my aura or if I am simply having fun with technology (again).
There are a lot of details to work out. The quests themselves are detailed – getting the goal (assignment) and the explanation for the student and the grading points/levels, and the cooperation of other instructors to allow their students to participate, and . . . and . . . and . . . Then adding the auras around campus tend to be less simple than I’d want (but what use of technology IS as simple as you want?).
Yet – I love it. I see the engaging side of it all. I hope it is not simply MY engagement but my students’ engagement as well.
So, doing all this, playing with technology for a specific goal – THAT is my aura!
