First, this blog was a great find. I follow Tony Vincent on Twitter, but I had no idea how informative his blog was. Check it out by clicking below.
I found this blog while researching OR codes. Tony has a great video about the basics of QR Codes.
In this video, Tony mentions a free site called QR Voice where you can type text, scan the QR code, and a computerized voice will read the text! This would be great for stations where students tend to forget directions. ;)
I obsessed over QR codes on Pinterest! Follow my iPad or Technology for School board. (I need to make a board just for QR codes, as I found many others have.)
I found this awesome freebie that I tested in my class this week. My firsties LOVED it!!!!
They got to practice reading, spelling, phonograms, and handwriting independently. Check it out by clicking HERE. It's from The Brown-Bag Teacher, which is a great blog I recently discovered!
I found this slide show about QR Codes via Scoop.it, which intrigues me as another way to share and learn new tech. ideas.
Kathy Schrock is a TECH GURU!!!!! Check out her QR Code ideas and resources:
Another Tech GURU is Tammy Worcester.
Check our her tip and code for creating a spreadsheet of QR codes in a Google spreadsheet.
I compiled all these great finds on my school's Tech Star Wiki. It's a work in progress, but I'm excited to beef it up over the summer as a tool for sharing and learning with my school. Check it out!!!
I hope you learned something new or are inspired to go learn and try something new!
