The Techie Teacher: Static vs. Dynamic QR Codes

The Techie Teacher: Static vs. Dynamic QR Codes | Mme Heschuk's French | Scoop.it
A Dynamic QR code allows you to place a short URL into the QR code and then EDIT/CHANGE it to something different at a later time! For instance, if I had a big QR code hanging on my classroom wall that would take my students to a specific website all about the Water Cycle, I could keep the SAME QR code taped to my wall throughout the year and just change the URL that is linked to that code. So the next day when my students scan the QR code, it could take them to a different website. Save the earth people! Save your ink! Dynamic QR codes can change your world :P

Stages of Being a Maker Learner - User Generated Education @jackiegerstein

Stages of Being a Maker Learner - User Generated  Education @jackiegerstein | Mme Heschuk's French | Scoop.it
So what is making? I’ve proposed that the heart of making is creating new and unique things. I also realize that in order for this type of making to occur, there needs to be some scaffolding so that maker learners can develop a foundation of knowledge and skills. The end result, though should be maker learners creating new things by and for themselves. The ideas in this post have been sparked by the SAMR model. I see a similar pattern or progression with maker education:

Handy iPad Posters to Use in The First Week of School ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

Handy iPad Posters to Use in The First Week of School ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Mme Heschuk's French | Scoop.it

"If you are planning to incorporate iPad in your classroom teaching then you definitely need to work on some preliminary stuff before anything else. These are basically formalities and conventions students need to abide by when using iPad in class. Making students explicitly aware of their responsibilities behind using iPad in class will certainly help you tap into the full educational potential of this versatile gadget. I have gone through my archive and picked out these handy visuals for you to use with your students."

"hrough the course of our “summer school” here at Techfaster we’ve met plenty of tech savvy educators. From ISTE in early July to the NAESP show and Campus Tech that wrapped up this week, teachers, administrators and education enthusiasts were learning, sharing, and networking with each other. These are definitely the tech savvy teacher type, and that’s validated in the infographic below from Daily Genius."

Alfredo Corell's curator insight, March 23, 2014 12:16 PM

This is a guest post from Greg Kulowiec of EdTechTeacher.org, an advertiser on Free Technology for Teachers. 

Publishing student video that is created with iPads can be a challenging process, especially with younger students. Even schools that are Google Apps typically decide to turn off YouTube uploads to the student accounts. However, with the use of a handful of free applications, students can create video content on iPad, share their creation with a teacher, and then have the teacher upload to their YouTube channel or a class YouTube channel.

"No matter how old the profession, those who work in a particular field have always had the ability to communicate with one another to compare notes and improve services. The form of communication began with face-to-face contact in early civilization and evolved to a more digital form in today's age of technological advances. Technology has always improved communication methods by enabling all—not just professionals—the ability to consult, collaborate, and learn from others. This has progressed from the earliest printing presses to the most recent smartphones."

Completely FREE Management App for 1:1 iPad Classrooms - Class Tech Tips

Completely FREE Management App for 1:1 iPad Classrooms - Class Tech Tips | Mme Heschuk's French | Scoop.it

"Otus is a terrific management tool for teachers in one-to-one classrooms who want an easy way to keep track of student work, provide opportunities for collaboration, and so much more.  I’ve had the opportunity to share Otus with my readers and webinar attendees and want to highlight one of the fantastic aspects of this powerful app – Otus is completely FREE for students and teachers.

 

With Otus teachers can keep track of participation, send notes to students, and take attendance.  They can also recognize student behavior by awarding points and group students.  The bookshelf feature lets teachers organize folders of resources to share with students – this can be done for whole class, individual, or create groups of students.  Otus gives teachers the power to create, assign, and grade assessments.  It is also simple to share these assessments with colleagues who may wish to use the same one or modify it for their students."

"Today while I was browsing through my Twitter feeds I came across this fabulous Bloom's Taxonomy wheel of apps shared by Anthony. If you still recall, some previous versions of this wheel have already been featured here in Bloom's Taxonomy for Teachers section .

As you can see, the wheel outlines a wide variety of verbs and activities related to each thinking level of Blooms taxonomy coupled with iPad apps that go with it. These apps are supposed to help teachers and students better cultivate these different thinking levels in their use of iPad apps. And because the the visual is not hyperlinked, I went ahead and provided the links for each of these apps in the lists below. Enjoy"
