Exploring The Educational Potential of QR Codes

Exploring The Educational Potential of QR Codes
QR Codes (or Quick Response Codes, to give them their full title) are two-dimensional bar codes which when scanned with the camera of a mobile device such as an iPad, Android tablet or smartphone can transfer web links, text and email addresses amongst other digital content quickly and easily to users. Popular with advertisers and marketing companies, QR Codes give readers an immediate opportunity to visit a website to find out more information about a range of facts, products and services. For schools that have invested in iPads or tablets as learning tools or allow their students to bring in their own devices (BYOD), QR Codes have proven to be a great timesaver for sharing links and distributing information en masse. Projecting large QR Codes on a screen so they can be scanned from around the class makes it easy for students to access the same content on their own devices and interact with it individually instead of passively looking at the interactive whiteboard.

Have You Started Using QR Codes In Your Classroom Yet? - Getting Smart by Guest Author - edchat, EdTech, education, QR codes By: James Walker As classrooms become more connected, teachers need shortcuts to help students reach online materials more quickly. One of the best classroom shortcuts is the QR code — that square image of white and black pixels that represents an individual URL. There are numerous applications for QR codes in the classroom; some of them obvious, and some of them a bit more imaginative. Protect your students from unwanted search results or mistyped URLs The most obvious use of QR codes in the classroom is as a one-step method of connecting students to websites. As educator Monica Burns told Edutopia: “We all want to avoid using search engines that might bring our students to the wrong website. Use QR codes to let students check their work Want to quickly give students a chance to grade each other’s quizzes, or to check their own answers? Confirm which students access additional resources Link QR codes to online badges Send QR codes home to parents Remember, parents can scan QR codes too!

La vidéo, une alternative et un complément à la trace écrite | LeWebPédagogiqueLeWebPédagogique Avec le coup de projecteur sur la classe inversée, de plus en plus de professeurs tentent l »expérience et mettent leurs contenus directement en ligne. Les supports prennent souvent la forme de vidéos diffusées sur le net pour faire travailler leurs élèves en amont du cours. Des collègues du supérieur expérimentent actuellement la classe renversée où leurs étudiants construisent eux-mêmes le contenu de la leçon afin d »être en mesure de l’expliquer à leur professeur. Sans parler d »aller aussi loin dans le secondaire, il est possible de mettre facilement les élèves en position de créer du contenu vidéo notamment grâce aux tablettes. Une fois réalisées, ces vidéos sont diffusées en classe et sur le web. Dans un article intitulé « Réaliser et publier de courtes animations avec Tellagami », François Jourde montre l »intérêt des outils numériques pour varier les séquences pédagogiques. Exemple : cette vidéo a été enregistrée par une élève de 6ème en cours d »Education civique. #2. #3. #4.

Education QR Codes - home 3 Ways to Use QR Codes to Connect School and Home For Boss’s Day, my office staff at Howe Elementary in Wisconsin Rapids, Wis., gave me the book QR Codes in Education by David Hopkins. In it, Hopkins describes those ubiquitous squares we see everywhere as being “like a barcode, but [containing] more data than just a number string.” When scanned, QR (short for “Quick Response”) codes connect users to websites, phone numbers, videos — nearly anything that can be digitized. Throughout his book, Hopkins provides several examples of how schools can utilize these codes to provide a link “between the printed world and the online electronic one.” Here are three ways we have started using QR codes at our school to connect school and home. 1. Every year, we survey our families to find out how they prefer for our school to communicate with them. Once the newsletter went out, I was able to go back to goo.gl and check how many times a parent scanned this code. 2. My staff recently had a school social. 3. Room for More Possibilities

Histoire-Géographie-Lyon - Pratiquer l'oral en Histoire-Géographie avec des outils nomades <code>De nombreuses applications gratuites pour outils nomades (smartphone et tablette) se développent pour construire des Visual Storytelling autrement dit des récits visuels. Utilisée dans les entreprises dans le cadre du marketing et du management, la construction de récits visuels s’avère très intéressante pour développer des capacités de narration et d’expression orale avec nos élèves. Le principe est très simple : il s’agit d’associer une photographie (et/ou plusieurs), d’insérer du texte et d’enregistrer sa voix et de construire ainsi une narration. Le récit d’expérience ci-dessous présente deux applications simples d’usage en classe et un exemple de récit d’élève. 1. Les élèves des séries STL et STi préparent l’épreuve orale anticipée d’Histoire-Géographie. Comment travailler l’oral avec 32 élèves ? Les applications de récit visuel offrent une possibilité de travailler avec tous les élèves à la fois de manière collaborative mais également individuelle. 2. a. b. Sites web :

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. Mobile learning can create both the tool and the need. With safe and specific structures, mobile learning tools can harness the excitement of technology with the purpose of effective instruction. 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.
