QR Codes in Education
QR codes are quick response codes, I think of it as a 3D barcode. These little black and white squares are popping up everywhere, on the back of magazines, envelopes, books, etc.
Digital Storytelling is transforming a story or report into a digital expression through media content. Students can blend text, music, images, sounds and narration to produce products for the classroom and beyond. I love digital storytelling because I feel like it is the easiest way for students to truly express their thoughts and views. Thinking about our next generation learners, they NEED to produce and express their learning….digital storytelling can easily be used across the curriculum for student products that SHOW their mastery of the curriculum content.
