There are several people out there that are talking about using QR codes in the classroom. I do not see QR codes being a fad that is going away. QR codes are everywhere. I think you will find QR codes to be a great way to share information with others, as well as a cool way to change up your lessons. Below, you will find the tools necessary to create QR codes, as well as some ideas on how to use QR codes.
Earlier I shared a resource for creating an Epub from any website. What about creating your own lab manual, children’s book, or even have your students create projects and have them available in iBooks? Or, consider the benefit of having books read out loud to a special needs student. Today we will do just that and dive into “Creating ePubs with iWork.”
Last week while at an Apple Sys Admin seminar they showed this cool trick to add “Send to Itunes” as an option in the PDF section in OSX. This when you select “To Itunes” from the printing menu next time you sync your IOS Device (Ipad, Ipod Touch, Iphone) whatever you selected will be in PDF form and located in Ibooks.
The whole point of cloud computing and Google Docs is to make your life easier. Recently I moved our teacher email list that was on our website to a Google Spreadsheet and used the Publish feature to make it available on our website. The issue with the spreadsheet was you were unable to click on the email address to automatically open your email program and set the To: portion in your program. Until now.
A little back history on this subject, like a lot of people I have multiple Gmail accounts that I actively use, my personal, my work (K12) and my college account. Up until now I have had to log out of one to login to the other which becomes a pain. Up until this point I had no idea you could stay signed into multiple accounts. Not to mention its easy to setup.
