20 + Things you can do with QR codes in your school | Serious Play | Scoop.it

QR codes are possibly one of the most underused useful features of new technology. Perhaps one of the main reasons for this is that many people see them as a form of barcode and wrongly believe that they can only be produced by companies, but the reality is anyone can produce a QR code within seconds.

Unjournaling: Daily Writing Exercises That Are Not Personal, Not Introspective, Not Boring!

~ Dawn DiPrince (author) More about this product
List Price: $14.95
Price: $10.40
You Save: $4.55 (30%)

Some people just don't want to share intimate details about their thoughts, feelings, and lives—at least not with others in a class or group. That's where UnJournaling comes in. All the writing prompts in this book are entirely impersonal but completely engaging—for both kids and adults.

Just a couple of examples of the 200 writing prompts on widely varied topics:

Write a paragraph about a girl named Dot, but use no letters with a dot (in other words, no i or j).Why on earth would Yankee Doodle stick a feather in his cap and call it "macaroni"? Come up with a plausible explanation.

The book includes sample responses to all of the questions—a helpful tool for anyone who gets stuck with a topic and wants to see that it can be done!

Karen Dietz's curator insight, September 21, 2015 2:46 PM

I'm always on the hunt for new and interesting ways to tell a story and this post by Oakley Anderson-Moore caught my eye. She lists -- and explains -- 6 ways to make a documentary. I like them because they get me thinking about how I would tell a story using each one of these styles.


It's fun -- and a bit of a mind-bender. Yet I think many of these we could add to our repertoire of business storytelling modes and strategies. 


What do you think?

Lanzada a principios de marzo de este año, Genial.ly se postula como la alternativa española a Prezi y Sway, el último servicio de presentaciones virtuales alumbrado por Microsoft.
Competir con ellas, sin embargo, parece que no le resultará complicado, pues se trata de una herramienta completa muy útil a la hora de crear infografías, posters, revistas digitales y un amplio abanico de recursos digitales. Nosotros la hemos probado y este es el resultado.
