Check us out!

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:


If you want to learn more about QR codes, check out my presentation document below from when I presented to my campus.

Happy weekend!

  3. I used QR in 2nd, but hadn't considered it for PreK (my first year in Prek). I am DEFINITELY going to add QR's to our rotation!! Man, those kids are having fun!! Love this!!

    You must have been at TCEA!! I love Moby!! It was the HIGHLIGHT of the conference to get my picture with him. I have to admit that I arranged my entire schedule around finding him and yes, stalking the floors until I found him! HAHA Such a geek!! JoAn

  4. Thanks for the How-to doc. I have been looking around but hadn't found anyone who actually explained the full process. I am looking to start making and using them in my K class. Thanks again for sharing!
