I made a series of posters that I often hang around the room when I facilitate workshops. It's fun for participants to get up and scan them at break time. Each poster features a quote about education or technology .
How those weird square barcodes can help students access information and showcase their work Thanks to the world’s obsession with smartphones, Quick Response—or QR—codes are becoming more and more popular.
This fall I wrote a huge grant to the Education Foundation of Sarasota County, Inc. which included the purchase of 3 iPads for my classroom. I teach USING a lot of different technologies (digital cameras, photo software, ActivBoard, ActivExpressions, ActiVotes, etc) but I lacked in areas allowing the students to USE technology to learn.
I decided to incorporate the QR scans and create an Open House Scavenger Hunt to give the parents and kids the information needed to begin the new school year. As the students arrived, there was an iPad and the first page of the scavenger hunt on their desk. They were instructed to work through the scavenger hunt with the help of their parents.
There is a great opportunity for students to create and use QR codes on the iPad to extend learning across a range of curriculum subjects and specifically for demonstrating understanding of their own work or extending their understanding of a topic.
My Algebra students have been solving multi-step equations for a few days, and I knew it was time to assess. I designed some interactive paper “foldables” to organize student work for each problem type, as well as model my expectations for their work during lessons. I knew I wanted the assessment to be a paper-pencil task, yet I wanted to include the iPads in the process.
