Tips for Teaching Online by Nicky Hockly About us Courses & workshops Consultancy services Clients & publications Tools & webquests QR codes: A treasure hunt Here’s another classroom idea for using mobile devices and QR codes. It’s a simple idea, based around the concept of a treasure or scavenger hunt, where students need to find specific information in various locations. In this case, my international students in the UK all had smartphones, but not 3G connections. This meant we had to rely on the school’s Wi-Fi network, and the location of the activity was limited to the school building itself.

Publications I have written extensively about English Language Teaching and technology: Going Mobile: Teaching with hand-held devices Delta Publishing, 2014 (with Gavin Dudeney) [download a free sample] This ground-breaking publication is the first published book on mobile and handheld learning in ELT. Starting with a history of mlearning and moving through a rationale and a set of practical case studies from around the world, the book will provide you with a set of sample activities to try out with your classes, and also help you envisage, develop and implement your own mLearning plan in your institution or organisation. Firmly grounded in the practical, this is one book you will want to read if you’re looking at mobile devices or tablets in teaching or training.

ANDREWARTICLESANDSTORIES My last three books are about telling and making stories in the language classroom Storytelling with Children. Oxford University Press. Second Edition 2008 Creating Stories with Children. it's NOT about what the teacher does with technology Bruce Springsteen: "When we kiss…" Not just going through the motions! You could probably say I've had four different though overlapping careers — in language teaching, language teacher training, technology and ELT management. The first of those I retired from (after 35+ years) a few months ago, though the number of contact hours I was doing was limited; teacher training I'm retiring from at the end of this month; management I got fired from (to the relief of all involved!) many years ago; which leaves only another 10 or so years in technology to do (I'm only (?) 57, so it ain't over yet!).
