Kahoot! would be a great tool to use for ice-breakers, reviewing material, creating interactive informal assessments, or used as part of a presentation where the students create their own quizzes to gain deeper understanding of a topic. You can even make your quizzes public so that you can share your creations with others!

Eliterate Librarian: QR Code App Scavenger Hunt

Eliterate Librarian: QR Code App Scavenger Hunt | Technology in Education Ideas | Scoop.it

Tamara Cox writes: "If you are looking for a way to expose teachers to lots of apps, this is a fun activity. I took our districts list of core apps (and several extras) and printed a sign with the app icon, brief description and a QR code that links to examples of the app being used in the classroom."

Our teachers have been asking for more hands on staff development, and this would be a great way to get people exposed to several apps in a short time.

"Software, apps and more: Many schools that decide to adopt a 1:1 technology program may decide to invest in iPads or tablets for their students. Not only are these devices smaller than PCs, but there are many creative apps available for educators, many of them are even free. According to the blog, “Learning and Innovation,” here are some of the top ones you may want to check out."

Five lessons, each is differentiated as Beginner / Intermediate / Advanced. Mapped to three sets of national standards. Excellent way to get started teaching search skills. (I know there's no room in your curriculum to do this. Perhaps that's what's wrong with your curriculum?)Seize the opportunity to help your students develop real 21st Century Skills.

I like that it includes AASL Standards.  We must start teaching technology standards in every class.
