English with Mr. Bormann: QR Code Crime Scene

English with Mr. Bormann: QR Code Crime Scene | mLearning in Education | Scoop.it

I've heard of QR codes and have scene them used in mobile advertising. I've even heard of some really good ideas on how to use them in class including a QR code scavenger hunt. Our school is 1:1 with iPads in grade 9-12, and I've been pondering for awhile on how I could use QR codes in my own classroom. Then, and idea struck me as we approach Ch. 6 & 7 of Huck Finn. In those chapters, Huck stages a crime scene to make it look like how was murdered. Brilliant, I know. But most students don't see his genius behind this. So I decided to do a QR Code Crime Scene prior to reading these two chapters.

The researchers found that "personal 'ownership' of the device is seen as the single most important factor for successful use of this technology." They found ownership is fundamental for increasing students levels of motivation, interest, and engagement. Personal ownership promotes greater student autonomy and self-efficacy.

iPads in Chicago Public Schools

iPads in Chicago Public Schools | mLearning in Education | Scoop.it

The Chicago Public Schools (CPS) iPad Project seeks to dramatically transform the classroom.

Such a transformation is made possible through use of the low‐cost Apple iPad tablet computer. In an effort to drive “big change” and to promote meaningful classroom usage, Information & Technology Services offered iPad grants to schools. In return, we were able to identify best practices that could dramatically transform the way teachers teach and the way students learn throughout the District.

What can you do with an iPad in the classroom? | mLearning in Education | Scoop.it

It’s a tool, it’s a tool, it’s a tool. The iPad is not going to replace teachers or ‘fix’ education.  There is a cost implication that must be taken into account and only an educator will know if it is right for their students.

Apps in Education: 10 Apps for Documenting Learning | mLearning in Education | Scoop.it

One of the things that really excites me about the iPad is the ability of the students to show their learning. I am not talking about the end product here, I am talking about the act of learning that can be shown by students recording their processes. It is often about the student putting the information they have learnt into a context. It is this contextualisation that helps the students create meaning.
