This year I have 10 iPad Mini's in my classroom. We use them daily. Why? Engagement. My kiddos do quizzes on google docs, exit tickets on kidblog and I use weebly to store our research links. This week, they completed a QR Code Scavenger Hunt to answer Science questions about bats. The kids LOVED it! They would scan the code and then a question would pop up. They used a recording sheet to answer their questions. After the question, a clue that told them where to go next.
Since I didn't have any experience with QR codes, I did a little research (googling/pinteresting) and I found a bit of a treasure - classtools.net!
If you have iPods, iPads or tablets...give QR Codes a try! 100% engagement!! I think this would be excellent for test prep, too. What kind of apps or technology do you love to use in your classroom?
This Little Piggy is lovin' technology.
