More, Different and Better » Spreading the importance of English and maths through QR codes The seventh in a series of guest blogs from Catherine Langstreth, a lecturer from Bolton College, sharing her thoughts on ways to engage, motivate and inspire all learners and develop maths and English skills through embedded learning. As mentioned in my previous posts, in order to show learners the importance of maths and English, topics need to be contextualised and relevant. For example, when teaching area and perimeter, real life scenarios of where these formulas would be required need to be explored, i.e. carpeting a floor, tiling a wall, putting up a fence, etc. In order to stretch and challenge my learners, I am currently using QR codes on all of my resources. Learners can scan the codes using iPads and Smart Phones and it will take them directly to my Moodle course which contains contextualised activities to help them further develop their maths and English skills.

Which makes it kind of a big deal.

They don't however evaluate typing skills while users are going about their daily web browsing or word processing activities. Typing Speed Monitor is a Google Chrome extension that will track how fast users type and what keys they use most frequently.
