Before QR Codes in Reading Guided Reading Groups: Journaling Reading Journals consist of: Prediction Clarify Questions Summary Evaluation
Before QR Codes in Reading Guided Reading Groups: Journaling “Every student, every day” Stations: (60 minutes: 15 minute rotations each) Guided Group Independent work Technology Work (typing, Scoot Pad, Mr. Anker’s) Reading Counts
First Experiencing QR Codes Reading eMINTS Conference 2013 – Columbia, MO Mapping Media to the CC Dr. Wesley Fryer, Ph.D. Dr. Fryer introduced several ways to incorporate media in reading and writing. The one I have taken back to my classroom is QR Showcase
First Experiencing QR Codes Reading QR Showcase allows students to take control, and have “redo's”. Students are able to record, listen, and redo. This promotes editing in the writing process. Independence Elementary School – Yukon, OK Examples from students:
Prepping Students Journaling Tweaking summaries Going beyond the basic summary, and turning it into a summary with a recommendation or lesson learned. Editing Group and peer edits Technology training Computer UsageWebsites Tablet UsageUploading and Saving RecordingPresentation Completion
Computer Usage Using the teacher’s computer and tablet First experiences Teacher led Note taking Solo experiences Using notes and other trained students Professional help (teacher)
Websites Audioboo.fm is a great resource for students to record their summary, edit, and save. This website is completely free! There are many examples found on this website, that can give additional ideas of how to use this website. https://audioboo.fm/
Websites QR Code Generator is a free resource that will allow you to create a QR code that can be read on any phone or tablet that has a QR reader downloaded. This resource will create a code for a web address, YouTube video, Twitter, Instagram, Dropbox, an option for Plain text, and many more options.
Tablet Usage Motorola Xoom Android tablet(my personal device) Additional Resource: High resolution camera Easily transfers pictures of book cover to desktop.
Recording https://audioboo.fm/ Students will open up audioboo.fm on the teacher’s desktop and put headphones on. Click on “Record/Upload” Click on “Got your mic ready?” (new recording) You will want to make sure you have flash enabled. Click on “start recording”. Once you are done you will click on “pause recording”. At this point, students will preview their recording. If they like it they will click on “Happy? Add a title”. If they are not happy, they will restart recording.
Creating a QR Code Step 1: Open up your “audioboo” recording and copy the web address. Step 2: Paste your web address into Step 3: Download QR Code At this point, I save the QR Code as an image to import it into my Word document for the final presentation.
Presentation Software: Microsoft Office Word You will need to: Import book cover/jacket Import QR code Create a title. When Robots Attack! Summarized by: Jose
Trial and Error Printing Separately Gluing onto construction paper with distort the QR code, and not allow it to be read. Recording Sometimes when listening to your unsaved/untitled recording it will become distorted. Option 1: Go ahead and title it, then listen to it. Sometimes it will save fine, but not initially replay correctly. Option 2: Record it again, after closing the browser and reopening the browser.
