Rhondda Powling's curator insight, August 12, 2013 12:56 AM

This publishing tool is very easy to use. You need the document you upload to be in PDF format. If you have a scanner in they school that scans into PDF, you can load it with the student work, create a PDF and convert it into a virtual book. Free and premium versions available. This can then be embedded into a blog, etc.

Reflection Facilitated by QR Codes

Reflection Facilitated by QR Codes | Student Writing Resources | Scoop.it
Reflection is an essential part of learning. Yes, it often hard to fit in the time for reflection. It's also challenging to make reflection something that doesn't seem boring and tedious.
jamie camp's insight:

Note

For districts w/ draconian network policies blocking QR code use:
You don't *have* to scan these codes to use Vincent's reflection questions. You can just go directly to the page

This would prompt great student blog reflections!

Imagination Prompt Generator: Random Writing Blog Prompts, Writer's Prompt Tool · Creativity-Portal.com

Random writing and journaling prompts, inspiration, and story starters for writers, bloggers, and visual artists.
jamie camp's insight:

Writing prompt generator. I don't know how school safe it is--I think I'd use it to help me come up with prompts for kids rather than have them look at the site. That said, I didn't see any inappropriate prompts. Some were just more appropriate for older students because they refer to childhood remembrances.
