The Adventures of Library Girl: QR Codes to the Rescue: Transforming Print from Out of Date, To Out of This World!

The Adventures of Library Girl: QR Codes to the Rescue: Transforming Print from Out of Date, To Out of This World! | Teaching in the XXI Century | Scoop.it

"The Adventures of Library Girl: QR Codes to the Rescue: Transforming Print from Out of Date:

 

I've been using QR codes as a pre-reading activity: a way for students to learn more about a title before reading it, (by affixing QR codes to books that link to trailers, author interviews or other related information) or as a culminating activity (by affixing QR codes to books that link to student book reviews, glogs or other projects). With this project, however, I'm matching out of date titles from my collection with Social Studies classes that are studying the corresponding topics. As part of their coursework, students find or generate resources that provide more current details about the information in the book. QR codes linking to the new, better info are then peppered throughout the print title - strategically placed near and around suspect/out of date information. And viola! Just like that, my out of date dinosaur of a print resource is magically transformed into an up to date, interactive book!!"
