So I am the technology person for my campus, which I do not feel adequate enough for the job. I really do try to integrate technology into learning, but it is hard to do all of the time. I have to admit, though, that I have fallen in love with using QR codes to make student learning more engaging. Here is a video of us on a sight word hunt.
We called it Robot Sight Words. My kids are very obsessed with robots, so when I met Moby from BrainPop, they totally went bonkers.
Anyways, I told my cuties that we were going to go on a sight word hunt, but that Moby wanted to help. Then next thing I knew, he turned our sight words into robot words! That crazy robot! So then I showed them how to use a QR code reader and they hunted for the sight words from this document:
They loved finding robot sight words!
Here is one more video, just for fun:
