I absolutely love this idea from Tony Vincent’s “Learning in Hand” blog. He has taken a series of quotes, and used QR quotes to cover up parts of the quotes. If you go to this link, you can see 20 examples. He also offers a link to a video explaining QR codes. Tony hangs up the posters for people to take a look at during breaks at workshops, but I could certainly see bringing this idea to the classroom, as well. What I might do is have my students use Socrative to input their own guesses as to what words would complete the quote, then let them scan the code to see if the general idea is the same. Here is a link to my Pinterest board that is chock full of inspirational quotations.
“Show What You Know” is an infographic provided by Tony Vincent at Learning in Hand. It visually represents different ways that students can present their research using specific mobile and web apps. I like the idea of offering this to your students with a rubric that outlines your expectations for the final presentation – giving the kids the freedom to choose how their information is presented while still guiding their learning on a particular topic.
