Using Augmented Reality to Enhance Vocabulary Instruction Part One - The Apptive Learning Lab

Using Augmented Reality to Enhance Vocabulary Instruction Part One - The Apptive Learning Lab | Gamification and QR Bar Codes | Scoop.it
Over the school holidays I have been playing around with an app called Aurasma, in the hope of creating an activity for reading groups to enhance our vocabulary studies. We already do a number of activities with iPads that enhance explicit vocabulary instruction, but this is going to be different. I think this activity is going to blow the kids away, and I’m so looking forward to seeing their faces when they use it for the first time.

What’s Up with QR Codes: Best Tools & Some Clever Ideas - Learning in Hand | Gamification and QR Bar Codes | Scoop.it
QR (Quick Response) codes can make classrooms more efficient and interactive. Instead of typing in a web address, a student can open an app and point his or her device’s camera at the code and walk away with a website, audio, or video open in his or her web browser. QR codes store information in an image made up of tiny squares, and anyone can create them.

It’s been a couple years since I blogged about QR codes so it’s time for some updated information.

40 Ways to Screw Up a PowerPoint Slide

40 Ways to Screw Up a PowerPoint Slide | Gamification and QR Bar Codes | Scoop.it
Bad PowerPoint design may be just as detrimental to your presentation as smelling like a horse. When you have poorly designed slides, a few things happen: your professionalism is questioned (because you essentially tell the people looking at your PowerPoint that you don't know how to create professional work); your audience members get distracted as they toggle between looking at your bad design and listen to what you're actually saying (and, in the end, they don't really ingest either); and your audience just gets bored or annoyed--which is about the worst possible outcome when presenting. Obviously, there are a number of…

"This week I’ve been getting excited about using Kahoot in the classroom. Kahoot delivers online quizzes and surveys to your students.


It works very similar to the more well-known Socrative. The teacher displays the question and the answers on the beamer or tv in the front of the classroom. The students see the corresponding icon and color on their screen. They have 30 seconds to answer on their devices and get points for every question they answer right. The quicker they answer the more points they receive. After each question the top 5 students are shown on the board with their scores. This is where it gets exciting. The students love this immediate feedback and want to get to the top position. I have never seen students so focused on answering the questions correctly."

How To Get Into The 'Flow' In Your Classroom - Csikszentmihalyi !

How To Get Into The 'Flow' In Your Classroom -  Csikszentmihalyi ! | Gamification and QR Bar Codes | Scoop.it

By Katie Lepi:

 

So just how do you learn to get into the flow in your classroom? The ever-lovely Mia MacMeekin made this handy graphic after watching a TED talk by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi and reading his book. I haven’t read the book, but the TED talk is really inspiring. It is not specifically geared towards teaching or education, but talks about how to find fulfillment and happiness through immersion in activities – which he calls ‘flow’. If you’re interested in a bit of his backstory, you can read a bit about him here. Mia has extrapolated the ideas of his TED talk and applied them to the classroom.
