Writing for a purpose with the iPad and QR Codes- March 2014 Blog Post

Writing for a purpose with the iPad and QR Codes- March 2014 Blog Post | Technology | Scoop.it

Last week during World Book Day, my school had a Dr Seuss themed week. As I teach each class ICT during the one day, I decided to develop pupils awareness of their audience during a short book review activity. I told the pupils that not only would their class teacher be reading their book reviews but the rest of the school and parents would be listening to them. After a few blank faces glared back at me, I explained that their reviews had to be recorded into their iPads and could not be longer than 30 seconds. We used Croak It app to record the reviews (it limits the recordings to 30 seconds) and then shares that recording as a web-link. These links were then put into the QR code creator app, printed and put with the front covers of the books. If you want to record longer than 30 seconds and have images displayed while you listen to them then you could use Shadow Puppets which also creates a web-link or AudioBoo which makes a QR code for you. If you want pupils to attach a GarageBand song to a QR code then you can save the song into something like box.com app using the open in tool and create a web link from there. 
We then displayed the finished front covers around the school, in the weekly newsletter and library.

This is a great activity to try with our elementary.  Our schools do a whole Dr. Suess unit during February's I Love to Read month.  This will be a nice addition.  Thanks for sharing.

Using Survey Monkey with your students could prove to be an interesting way to get them involved.
