A QR Code or Quick Response Code is a method of easily sharing various information with people through the use of a QR Code Reader. Using a Tablet or Phone camera, users scan a QR code and it will send users to a URL address that it is linked too. There are several options for creating codes and reading codes. I currently use the Kaywa Reader which has a QR Code Generator and a Reader App for both Apple devices and Android devices . Below is an infographic that provides the history and statistics for QR Codes (Click to Enlarge) Now that you have a Generator, Reader, and some background knowledge at your disposal, how can you use this service in your classroom?

This page gathers all of the Bloomin' Apps projects in one place ! Each of the images has clickable hotspots and includes suggestions for iPad, Google, Android, and Web 2.0 applications to support each of the levels of Bloom's Revised Taxonomy. The use of the triangle shape for Bloomin' apps projects was not used to help clear up the misunderstanding that the levels are hierarchical and the top levels only make up a tiny portion of the cognitive processes. I have created a page to allow you to share your favorite Web 2.0, iOS, or Android app with others. New image for Bloom's?
Since my last post I had yet another discovery around this idea of social networking with Kindergarten kids, wow! I have only recently set up a class twitter account that is used solely for the purpose of making connections with other Kindergarten classes. The children in my class seem to have naturally connected with this idea of making friends and sharing ideas with others in other places outside of our classroom. As a teacher I really think carefully about “how to” develop this idea of making friends and connections with others. “Tweeting Away” In Kindergarten | kindergartenlife
Over the last couple of months, Educational Technology and Mobile Learning has been working diligently on a variety of educational technology guides for teachers and educators. The majority of them have been posted here and , thankfully, have received a huge and unprecedented interaction from our readers. We are glad our hard work did not go in vain. These guides come in very handy for every teacher looking to better integrate technology into his/her teaching. They are very simple,developed in a step by step process, illustrated by pictures, diagrams, video tutorials, and examples, and concluded with a webliography containing links to a variety of other websites relevant to the topic under discussion.

#BYOD - Criteria for Implementation Success #byodchat #edchat #BYOD - Criteria for Implementation Success Creative Commons Copyright ShareAlike-Attribution-NonCommercial This past week in a conversation, I found myself saying, “Wouldn’t it be neat if there was a rubric or list of criteria for implementing a BYOD program? That way, you could just share that with campus/district leaders so they could be aware of what was needed from 3 different perspectives: Teaching & Learning, Policy and Procedures, and Infrastructure & Administration.” Everyone looked at me with expectation in their faces. Internally, I gave a long sigh.
