You can use QR codes to create deeper understanding or learning of a topic AND to take a 2D item and make it SO much more.

BRILLIANT!

Can so see this not only for the Fine Arts teachers for their yearly art gallery but for every teacher who still likes to hang posters in the hallway! This will integrate technology into a well-loved lesson plan.

The iPad as a Tool for Creation to Strengthen Learning

The iPad as a Tool for Creation to Strengthen Learning | WIRED Teachers | Scoop.it
We don’t want iPads to just become replacements for notebooks and textbooks, we want them to be objects to think with. We want students using them to mess around with the world around them and their courses of study.

This is the third post (in a series of four) by Justin Reich exploring “the future of tablets in education. The first post in this series describes a “Someday/Monday template” stating:

“For technology to make a real difference in student learning, it can’t just be an add-on. On the other hand, teachers need to start somewhere (Monday), and one of the easiest ways for teachers to get experience with emerging tools is to play and experiment in lightweight ways: to use technology as an add-on. Teachers need to imagine a new future—to build towards Someday—and teachers also need new activities and strategies to try out on Monday.” (Quoted from: http://blogs.kqed.org/mindshift/2013/05/the-future-of-tablets-in-education-potential-vs-reality/.)

This third post explores creation, “examining what is possible when we empower students and teachers as innovators with their iPds and other mobile devices.
 Rather than having students use their devices as replacements for netbooks/computers/textbooks allow them to use them to create something new, or using the SAMR model, as tools that provide the ability to redefine, to think. The post shares a number of examples of what is happening in classrooms that have made the shift from Monday to Someday.

This post provides links to the first post, which explores “The Future of Tablets in Education: Potential vs. Reality of Consuming Media” (consumption) and the second which explores “To Get the Most Out of Tablets, Use Smart Curation” (curation).

This couldn't ring more true! The first post in this series talks about how teachers need to go through the iPad as an 'add-on' stage. We've found this to be true at our school and there is so much value in recognising this stage as valid. Getting to the stage where teachers and students use the iPad to create and transform learning takes time. Allowing for this time will help ensure an effective iPad programme. We've also realised that having lead teachers across the school there for support and guidance helps teachers considerably as they move through those early phased in their iPad development.

TeachThought: How To Use An iPad To Add Voice Comments To Grading

TeachThought: How To Use An iPad To Add Voice Comments To Grading | WIRED Teachers | Scoop.it

"There are many pdf annotation apps available that allow this kind of text marking, but another killer feature that is somehow less celebrated: voice annotation.

 

The video below walks users through adding voice comments to pdf documents, starting right at the 2:00 mark. (The first two minutes cover the aforementioned text annotation.) Being able to add voice comments not only allows teachers to clarify important ideas, but could also be used by peers during the revision portion of the writing process.

 

As the paperless classroom becomes easier to realize, new tools will become more and more necessary to fill in the workflow gaps. Tools like these are a step in that direction."
