Reflection Facilitated by QR Codes

Reflection Facilitated by QR Codes | Student Engagement and Learning | Scoop.it
Reflection is an essential part of learning. Yes, it often hard to fit in
the time for reflection. It's also challenging to make reflection something
that doesn't seem boring and tedious. To help make reflection a little more
fun, I've made a reflection question generator and dice that can help
students express their responses. Both the generator and dice use QR codes
and serendipity to call up reflection questions and avenues for
responding.

Opening more doors for students | SmartBrief | Student Engagement and Learning | Scoop.it

Experience matters. This is true when it comes to everything from babysitting to applying for your first job out of high school or college. The candidate who already has experience will have the edge. As the emphasis on college and career-readiness continues to increase, I expect a growing number of schools and districts in the new year will start offering opportunities for students to obtain certifications and gain real-world experience while still in school. I also expect schools to implement technologies that help them manage programs to support students in their acquisition of these skills. My district, the Community Schools of Frankfort, in Indiana, is a good example. Last year we helped two eighth-grade students obtain their A+ Certification -- a national computer certification. Normally students don’t take this exam until they’re much older; however, we were able to nurture these skills in our students by setting up a student-run help desk to give them real-world experience.
