Twelve Ideas for Teaching with QR Codes

Twelve Ideas for Teaching with QR Codes
Updated 01/2014 As mobile learning becomes more and more prevalent, we must find effective ways to leverage mobile tools in the classroom. As always, the tool must fit the need. A Quick Tutorial QR stands for Quick Response. 1. Have students use QR to create resumes that link to other content such as their professional website or portfolio. 2. You can create QR for linking students to examples of quality work, whether it's PowerPoint or slideshare for a class presentation, or people speaking a foreign language specific to your current lesson. 3. Integrate QR with a PBL or Service Learning project where students can create the codes that will link to the content they create. 4. Save a few trees! 5. Award prizes by having students scan a code leading to an animation or badge. 6. Put codes in different areas of the room that will take students to different online activities, videos or content. 7. Have students check their answers by scanning the QR code after completing a test or assignment.

Marc L*** Mis en ligne le mercredi 7 janvier 2009 ; mis à jour le mardi 28 avril 2009. Bon annniversaire, Marc. Le 5 décembre 2008, tu fêteras tes vingt-neuf ans. Tu permets qu’on se tutoie, Marc ? Tu ne me connais pas, c’est vrai. J’ai eu un peu peur, au début, d’avoir un problème de source. Alors, Marc. Revenons à toi. On n’a pas parlé de musique. J’ai triché, une fois : pour avoir accès à ton profil Facebook (ce qui m’a bien aidé pour la suite), j’ai créé un faux profil et je t’ai proposé de devenir mon « ami ». Je pense à l’année 1998, il y a dix ans, quand tout le monde fantasmait déjà sur la puissance d’Internet. À la demande de l’intéressé, ce texte a été entièrement anonymisé et modifié (villes, prénoms, lieux, etc.) à la différence de la version parue dans Le Tigre en papier, dont seuls les noms propres des personnes citées étaient anonymisés.

I've Been Waiting for This! AirPlay Mirroring to a Mac (no Apple TV required) Update: Reflection has been renamed Reflector. It is available for Macintosh and for Windows PCs. I am so excited for a new Mac app called Reflection! In the past I've used different ways to show iPad's screen on a projector to an audience. All of these past methods require iPad to be stationary. Wireless mirroring to Apple TV is made possible by AirPlay, a feature of iPad 2 and iPhone 4S. As someone who travels, it's not ideal for me to carry around an Apple TV and VGA adapter and hope that I can set it up on the network at the school or conference. Finally a Mac app has been released that does what I've been wanting. Reflection literally takes less than two minutes to setup. Download Reflection and copy it to your Applications folder. Mirroring is great for modeling device use by the teacher. Student devices can be mirrored as well. Reflection is also great for making screencasts of what you seen iPad or iPhone's screen. How about another use for Reflection?

QR Codes in the Classroom Mobile Learning | Q&A QR Codes in the Classroom Wyoming science teacher London Jenks not only allows mobile technologies in his classroom, but he's also learned how to maximize them as educational tools, tapping the devices for assessments, research, and even student scavenger hunts using QR codes. By Bridget McCrea08/31/11 At a time when schools are banishing student-owned mobile devices from their classrooms--or, at least making sure the disruptive laptops, tablets, and phones are powered down class begins--London Jenks is taking a decidedly different tack. A science teacher at Hot Springs County High School in Thermopolis, WY, Jenks welcomes iPhone- and Android-toting students into his classes. A Google-certified educator who teaches earth science, physics, chemistry, and astronomy, Jenks explainedhis reasons for letting down the walls that so many other instructors have erected during this "mobile" age and told us how the strategy has helped him be more effective as a teacher.

L’illusion de la pédagogie numérique | Le blog de Christine Vaufrey Je lis avec quelques semaines de retard le texte de J.M. Fourgous publié dans Le Monde, intitulé « Oser la pédagogie numérique !« . Pour résumer, M. Fourgous y défend l’idée que le cours magistral n’est plus le mode idéal de transmission des savoirs, et qu’il faut passer à la pédagogie numérique pour intéresser à nouveau les élèves à l’apprentissage. Ce raccourci me semble dangereux et trompeur. D’une part, parce que je me demande bien ce qu’est « la pédagogie numérique ». D’autre part, M. Ce n’est évidemment pas « le numérique » (les tablettes, les téléphones intelligents…) qui rend possible la construction des connaissances. Et là, on sait déjà ce qui marche : le travail de groupe, l’approche par résolution de problème, l’autonomie des apprenants dans leur organisation.

Revolver Maps - Free 3D Visitor Maps Make your own QR Code Scavenger Hunt! Today was the first day of school. Ever. It was pretty epic. Since the students didn’t know where things were located in the building yet, I thought we would have some fun locating them with a QR code scavenger hunt. It was SO easy to do, I thought I would share the process here. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. *Below is my example of the QR code and website they were connected to. This was a really easy activity to prepare for from a teacher perspective. We used this hunt as a way for students to familiarize themselves with the layout of the new school but it would also be a great activity for a math scavenger hunt “Find an item that represents three times four”, or colors in art “This is the color you get when you mix yellow and blue”, or literature “find an object that represents this character in our novel”.

7 Reasons To Leverage Social Networking Tools in the Classroom Instructional uses of social networking software can provide opportunities for learning, connecting, and engagement. This year, I’ve written frequently about popular social media tools, and education-specific social networking apps, and social enterprise solutions. I’ve also noticed increasing coverage of this topic in the media recently. Maybe it’s just me paying more attention to it … or maybe it signals an increasing acceptance of these types of tools as legitimate and effective resources for the classroom. Social networking tools aren’t going away any time soon, they appear to be here for the long term. 7 ways in which “social learning applications” can play an impactful role in education: Engagement: Using social media and networking tools obviously has a social aspect to it, and it requires proactive effort on the part of the user. Social Learning: Bandura’s Social Learning Theory posits that “people learn from one another, via observation, imitation, and modeling”. Print This Post
