Create your own QR Code book display

Create your own QR Code book display | Digital School Libraries | Scoop.it

Create dynamic and interactive book displays in your school library today by making your own QR codes with this generator. http://qrcode.kaywa.com

 

Basic steps:

1. Select a range of books for your display (both fiction and non-fiction)

2. Browse the web for good websites that relate to your books. For example, you could use the Roald Dahl website for all Roald Dahl books, or a local conservation website for a book on saving the planet. You have the chance to be very creative here.

3. Go to http://qrcode.kaywa.com - enter the URL of your chosen website, select the size (I chose medium), then click Generate!

4. Save the QR code somewhere easy to find (you can use them over again as you need), print them out and place them on the book.

5. Put the books out on display and watch the interest!

 

We used a staff member's iPad to demonstrate how it worked to every class that visited the library - it was a big hit, and generated a real buzz throughout the school, with the display featuring in our school quarterly magazine.

 

It's free and easy - try it now!

NetSafe - Learn | Guide | Protect: Digital Citizenship Definition | Digital School Libraries | Scoop.it

What is a digital citizen?

Drawing from the Key Competencies and Values in the NZ Curriculum and a growing body of research knowledge, NetSafe, in consultation with New Zealand teachers has produced this definition of a New Zealand digital citizen.

A digital citizen:

* Is a confident and capable user of ICT

* Uses technologies to participate in educational, cultural, and economic activities

* Uses and develops critical thinking skills in cyberspaceis literate in the language, symbols, and texts of digital technologies

* Is aware of ICT challenges and can manage them effectively

* Uses ICT to relate to others in positive, meaningful ways

* Demonstrates honesty and integrity and ethical behaviour in their use of ICT

* Respects the concepts of privacy and freedom of speech in a digital world

* Contributes and actively promotes the values of digital citizenship

 

This is a 'bit' from NetSafe's myLGP website. It's part of a collection of resources that help educators to teach effective digital citizenship. Take a look.
