My 6th grade teachers have been requiring students to write book reviews as part of their writing portfolio.  They have posted the reviews to Destiny, but I'd like to have them record audio and add QR codes to the books.  Easier to find the reviews that way!

Leveraging Device Diversity to Create the Best Projects Possible

Leveraging Device Diversity to Create the Best Projects Possible | Daring Gadgets, QR Codes, Apps, Tools, & Displays | Scoop.it

Every device has its limitations (iPads & Adobe Flash). But they also have their strengths (Android’s OS flexibility). You may have heard of ‘app smashing,’ but how about ‘device smashing?’ How are students (& teachers) in a collaborative environment able to best use each device’s strengths to their advantage?

Learn more about leveraging “device diversity” in the BYOT classroom with special guest moderator, Felix Jacomino, in #BYOTchat in Twitter, on Thursday, December 12, 2013 at 9:00 PM EST.  Felix is the Director of Technology of St. Stephen’s Episcopal Day School in Coconut Grove, FL. He presents regularly on utilizing instructional technology tools for new learning opportunities and is currently organizing the mobile learning event, Miami Device.
