How to to create an mp3 recording and link a QR code to it?

How to to create an mp3 recording and link a QR code to it? | CEET Meet (Dec'12): Secret Language of QRs ~ Lisa Read | Scoop.it
Upload your mp3 to the Internet, then make a QR of that URL. This example used Vocaroo to record & then saved the URL and entered it into Unitag and created a simple website-push QR here.

Link to Vocaroo

Sound files seem to be able to be stored in Google Docs

Technology Bits Bytes & Nibbles | Turn a paper based book into an interactive book with QR Codes

Technology Bits Bytes & Nibbles | Turn a paper based book into an interactive book with QR Codes | CEET Meet (Dec'12): Secret Language of QRs ~ Lisa Read | Scoop.it
This would make a nice Big Buddy to Little Buddy gift: older student finds a non-fiction (or even fiction) picture book of interext to the younger child, thinks about how the information can be amplified with video, audio, or other text--or even a personal message, then generated qr codes are paper clipped to pages inside the book. Partners then share the books with their buddies in a side-by-side read aloud. Librarians, do you approve of paperclips in books? is the there a better way? (maybe those post-it glue sticks….)

Aurasma

Aurasma | CEET Meet (Dec'12): Secret Language of QRs ~ Lisa Read | Scoop.it
The world's first visual browser, bringing the physical and virtual worlds together.

This "animates" objects you take a picture of. In a sense, this tool works antiparallel to QR codes. Instead of creating a static image (code) that can enable or open some digital content, it can digitally animate (on screen) inanimate objects in the real world. Image the educational possibilities if your students use or create Aurasma and QR codes together. (Shaun Urban)

How to create QRs from text or non-standard symbols?

How to create QRs from text or non-standard symbols? | CEET Meet (Dec'12): Secret Language of QRs ~ Lisa Read | Scoop.it
In a basic QR generator such as Unitag, select the "text" tab under Types of QR codes. For non-standard symbols, such a code or novel language (say, Cree) symbols, one could take a screenshot, upload to a website, and encode the URL OR create an online glossary and encode the link.

The Puzzling Adventures of Dr. Ecco by Dennis Shasha: Dr. Ecco is a mathematical detective and puzzle solver.

"Cryptography and discrete mathematics are great ways to engage kids, get them creatively reasoning and thinking, and layer tasks. I like The Puzzling Adventures of Dr. Ecco as a hook-them puzzle filler." (Comment from Shaun Urban)

10minutes by Malyn Mawby

10minutes by Malyn Mawby | CEET Meet (Dec'12): Secret Language of QRs ~ Lisa Read | Scoop.it
" Posterous mini-blog that extends a sketchbook donated to the Boston library. The blog tells the stories - personal, technical, reflective and other - for each sketch in Malyn's sketchbook. The sketchbook has QR codes pasted on the page facing each sketch, so viewers of the book can access the corresponding post. Further, the sketchbook has been scanned and placed on the Boston library online outreach, so the sketchbook's reach is global.

For any subject, students can work on products on paper or other medium or media and reference extra material through QR codes.

I do this myself (sans the QR codes) for any trips to new places that I visit. I create a scrapbook that includes links to relevant, usually historical of naturally historical, information. This extends what I get out of the visit, or creates anticipation for a visit. Either way, both the information and the visit are enriched by the multi-resourced scrapbook. For subjects, the scrapbook could be a journal or a project report or … (comment from Shaun Urban)

QR Don'ts

QR Don'ts | CEET Meet (Dec'12): Secret Language of QRs ~ Lisa Read | Scoop.it
QR codes on a web page are basically useless as they are much harder to access than a simple link - unless you want to make it harder than a simple click. (Michael Jackson)

I wouldn't anticipate that a student would be doing an online activity AND have a mobile device beside them to scan codes. Rather, I would use the QR on a hand out or a poster and expect it to be used on a mobile device. (Lisa Read)

Participant ideas for using QR codes

Participant ideas for using QR codes | CEET Meet (Dec'12): Secret Language of QRs ~ Lisa Read | Scoop.it
~ I look for ways to incorporate digital technology in a traditional setting, as a way to move the adults in the building, as much as the kids, away from this model of fearing and trying to ban mobile technology. (Lisa Read)

~ place QR codes on static displays to provide more information -- eg. open days, learning stations, career day posters, conference poster sessions (John Andrewartha; Lisa Read)

~ QR code is mounted on the spine of a book that was reviewed by a student so students can share their knowledge with others. (Robin Feick)

~ link to class website (https://sites.google.com/site/atuerlingsmcnair/

~ in the library for book trailers -- student-created & in YouTube (sample: http://youtu.be/RZrT-MGu7X0) (Holly Colquhoun)

~ I just got an interesting idea from this website -- http://blog.qr4.nl/Dynamic-QR-Code-Service.aspx. This company makes dynamic codes on cubes that presumably spin. It reminded me of this tool -- http://museumbox.e2bn.org/ -- and would be an interesting way to do a group project or collect resources in one space. (Sue Hellman)

~ ice breaker --> put up clues around the room and have classmates write down guesses and/or claim their own clues(Lisa Read)

~ create a virtual gallery (from Lisa Read)



(from Michael Jackson)
~ If I have a physical artifact and I want an easy way to provide a link to information/mixed media from or about it - put a QR code beside it/on it.
~for "not giving all the info at once" -- perhaps a bit like flashcards

(from Jan Smith)
~ to develop an oral reading fluency and reading engagement of younger students, QR codes will be linked to older readers' reading of picture books
~ Student Art Work: Student creates a piece inspired by an artist of the past. The QR code displayed next to it links to the student's oral or written critique of the original.
~Archival photographs of WW1: code next to it links to student poems of remembrance.
~Students locate and study native plants in the woods next to the school. They create a website with plant id, First Nations uses, other info. Signs with some information are posted next to the plants in the woods, and with QR codes attached linking to additional student-researched information.
~ Student oral readings of picture books. Students practice and record their readings of books, QR codes on the cover link to the recordings.
~ to create ePortfolios --> in parent-student-teacher conferences, students could have produced a sheet of qr codes they have generated for various digital creations (blog posts, Pixton cartoons, podcasts, uploaded images etc) and as the conversation goes ahead, students can choose which evidence of learning they would would like to share. Probably best done on an iPad sized device so the work is most easily seen.

(from Clint Surry)
~ during a forensic theme week, plant clues with QR codes that reveal web resources
~ in a 'Sherlock' Scavenger hunt...basically, the code was used to provide resources that helped if the puzzle/clue was not apparent
~ link to multimedia, to apps, to safety references, to scavenger hunt clues and puzzles, to procedural exercises (see who is following directions), to exchange info in science & math team games/activities
~ use folded fortune tellers (http://www.origami-fun.com/origami-fortune-teller.html) to have kids collect their webquest QRcodes or share links to pictures of favorite places, things and people

(from Shaun Urban)
~ direct students in inquiry-based learning and exploration
~ QR subject/topic/task hunts --> each QR code engages students in new learning tasks
~ field trip scavenger hunts using orienteering and QR codes with puzzles/questions whose answers give next instructions (ie. clues placed in lesson-relevant places)
~ QR alternate-adventure labs with a mix of online and onsite questions, puzzles and clues --> an extension of the scavenger hunts, but with several QR directs per station so different students follow different routes, based how they respond to tasks or questions, and each route is designed to engage students in
specific knowledge, skills and ways of thinking to scaffold learning

Final thoughts from Shaun Urban
~ Consider though whether the QR codes add to the activity. That is, do they bring something into the activity that enriches rather than just decorates it? Secure a purpose for the QR codes that would be hard to deliver otherwise and then design an activity that elegantly incorporates the codes as an integral component instead of an afterthought.
