About this resource...
LuARca is a project to augment the reality of this Spanish location, showing visitors various points of interest that they can scan with their smart phones when around and learn more about the sites of this nice parroquia in the municipality of Valdés.
A group of B2 and C1 ESL students at the EOI who, together with their teacher, decide on the tourist sites to be turned into POIs and on which useful audiovisual information each POI will show.
In several steps:
Choose the sites from LuARca to include in the Project.
Research for information about each site: historical, tourist, cultural information, pictures, illustrations, etc.
Draft an illustrated piece of writing for each chosen site.
Record podcast and video clips for each POI.
Grab the corresponding URLs and the location of each POI.
Create API endpoint using Hoppala.
Add overlay, and students’ augments.
Go to Layar and create a new layer.
Edit the layer, test and publish it.
The students involved and their teacher have an interactive walk around the augmented sites in a wonderful mobile experience using the Layar App. The Layer name is LuARca.
