Open a magazine, a catalog, or take a look at sign in your local grocery market these days and you're likely to see a QR code. (The QR code to subscribe to Free Technology for Teachers is pictured to the left). QR codes and QR code reader apps are one of the many ways that cell phones can be used in schools for academic purposes. To that end, Russel Tarr has developed the QR Treasure Hunt Generator . The QR Treasure Hunt Generator provides you with all of the things you need to get started creating your own QR codes and using them in your classroom. To use the QR Treasure Hunt Generator type out a series of questions and answers, generate the QR codes using the tool Russel Tarr provides, then print and display the codes around your classroom or school.
Education Research Group/ Using ICT in Support of Learning and Teaching The group were successful in gaining funding in the Welsh extension of the TLRP project (£119,000) for the Interactive teaching and ICT (ITICT) Project, directed by Kennewell (http://www.tlrp.org/proj/documents/Kennewell.pdf). The project team is conducting empirical research in KS1, KS2 and KS3, (a) to compare the learning outcomes of effective teaching in mathematics, science and languages using digital and non-digital tools, (b) to analyse and theorise the links between interactive teaching practices and improved learning outcomes when ICT is used in classroom settings, (c) to analyse changes in teachers' pedagogical practice as a result of designing interactive teaching strategies and engaging in reflective dialogue in relation to ICT tools for teaching and learning.

Finding (useful) research on ICT use in education in developing countries | A World Bank Blog on ICT use in EducationI am often asked to recommend "useful research on ICT and education issues in developing countries". While there are resources to which I inevitably turn (and which I recommend time and again, a topic for future consideration on this blog), there is a question which I have a more difficult time answering: "How do I find, and stay in the loop on, useful research, documentation and lessons learned on ICT and education issues in developing countries?" Seven or eight years ago, there was, comparatively speaking, very little research attention to this area beyond the excellent work done related to interactive radio instruction and educational television, and on distance education in general.
