Abstract: This study describes a 7th grade literacy and science collaboration project using augmented reality to support students’ writing and speaking around a science fiction unit of study. The researchers included one first year teacher supported by a teacher education faculty. Students collaboratively authored paper slide presentations by hand and through comic-creators. They then staged their presentations using the Aurasma application. Results indicate that use of Aurasma to support digital writing created an engaging and collaborative experience for the learners. Students’ responses can be used to guide teacher educators in understanding how technology changes the way students learn to write and how technology influences writing instruction.
