I have had a GREAT time working with Area 5 schools this year on how to use iPads in the classroom. I break down the use of iPads into three areas: Practice Skills, Access Information, and Creation. Each time I visit with teachers, we explore one of the three topics and also focus on one of the six Digital Classroom skills.
Recently I have been working with a lot of Kindergarten teachers in Area 5 on how to integrate the use of QR codes for students to access information and then do something with the information.
Check out some of the stuff I have shared and what teachers have been creating for their students! (Thanks Tina Jenkins from Dowell!)
Recently I discovered, from Matt Gomez, a ton of online books that students can access via QR codes. He shared it recently on his blog. I am now sharing them with you! Click on the link below.
