QR Code Presentation from METC

Tuesday and Wednesday I had the pleasure of presenting at the METC Conference in St. Charles. I love sharing ideas with fellow teachers. I always feel so rejuvenated after attending a conference. Below is some information I shared for using QR Codes in the classroom. Happy Coding!!!

How do you bring a book report into the 21st century?? You podcast it!

My students will be making podcast that we will turn into QR Codes and then attach to the inside of books so other students can listen to a quick blurb about the book.

Each podcast is to be between 2-4 minutes. Students are to give the.....
1. Title
2. Author
3. Characters
4. A brief explanation about the problem in the story.

I am letting the students pick their podcasting software but some of the examples I have shown them are...

1. Audioboo
2. Audacity
3. I Said What
4. Garage Band
5. Voice Memo

Examples will be posted soon!!!!
