Images in Your QR Codes! | Web Tools in Education | Scoop.it

by Monica Burns

 

"Visualead is fantastic site that let’s users combine QR codes with images.  You can upload any picture that you want and place your QR code right on top of it.  Not only is it a great way to energize traditional black and white QR codes, adding images can help students distinguish between QR codes in different subject areas or lessons.  This is perfect for younger students or English Language Learners.  Whether you choose a picture of a globe for a Social Studies website or a number to match up to a question on an activity sheet, you’ll find lots of times to add images to your QR codes!"

Michelle Luhtala: 30 apps for educators and students | eSchool News | Web Tools in Education | Scoop.it

“There’s no one app that’s better than all the others,” said Michelle Luhtala, head librarian at New Canaan High School in Connecticut, while presenting a list of 50 apps that educators and students might find useful.

 

"Luhtala featured apps that have been crowsourced by a handful of her colleagues and students. The apps promote and target 21st-century skills such as collaboration and creativity.


"We’ve featured 30 of the resources she mentioned, and you can find the full resource list online.


"Check out Luhtala’s presentation for all the apps and tools she mentioned, as well as to discover how these apps are used in real classrooms."
