Using Scannable Technology to Reach Parents Year Round

We all know how important it is for caregivers to stay informed about everything happening in your building. Making sure that parents are aware of upcoming events, homework assignments, and the new strategies you're using in their child's classroom can have a big impact on how students perform in school. Scannable technology can be used throughout the school year to put all of the information that parents need right at their fingertips.

Teachers can use QR codes and Augmented Reality triggers to keep families in the know from the first to the last day of school. As more families have access to a smartphone or tablet in their hand, in their pocket, or as backup, teachers are in a position to leverage this technology to make sure that students and their parents are aware of expectations inside and outside of the classroom.

Online Stopwatch. Blooms Digital Web Tools. iLearn Technology. I’ve long been a fan of Bloom’s Taxonomy…not necessarily for all the ways it has been pushed into different fads throughout the years, but instead for the way that it helps me (and my students) think about the learning process.

iLearn Technology

It helps me approach the learning process in a more holistic way, ensuring that I don’t camp out in one way of thinking and evidencing learning for too long. I think it is human nature to get excited about one way of thinking and suddenly everything we do falls into that. It can be a little bit like the new car that you purchased, you begin to see that car everywhere because you have a new awareness of it. I’ve noticed myself doing the same in teaching. Bloom’s Taxonomy helps me to keep myself cognizant of all the different ways to approach learning. A few years ago, I created some different versions of Bloom’s Taxonomy for my students. You will notice that my images don’t have the traditional Bloom’s pyramid.

This graphic is a kind of amalgamation of broader technology standards by ISTE and AASL, only the ones that reflect digital citizenship thinking have been pulled out and gathered in convenient graphic form.
