TIES 2013 - Relevant Projects using QR Codes, Screencasts, and Kidblog

Steps to Create QR Codes, Screencasts, and Kidblog Enteries

1. QR Codes
QR codes come in handy when you want to rely information without having to write something short or lengthy like website and access quickly. Using any device with a camera and app ableto read QR codes you could scan any of the codes on the map below and view students regional presentations as well as all the conversations captured on Kidblog. It is a wonderful way to display and have access to student work that is digital. Many times parents scan these codes when they come in to volunteer, have a conference or simply pick up their child. 
1) You can create a QRcode at qrcode.kaywa.com
Watch the following screencast on how to create a QR code.
2) If you are looking for a way to scan a QRcode, simply search "qrcode" within your phone app store.

After logging in, look over the Google presentation created and leave a comment below about something that caught you eye: someone's strengths, another's area of growth, etc. Reply to other people's comments, and see where the conversation goes. There will be a little delay in seeing everyone's comments, as they need to be approved by the teacher (facilitator of the class blog site). This feature can be change under settings, but part of demonstration purposes.

4. Embedding a project "the code" within Kidblog

Kidblog is a wonderful way to display digital projects. Whether it is a GoogleDoc, Animoto, Glogster, or most digital pieces created have an embedding code to be able to display anything produce within the blog itself. Watch the following screencast for an example showing how to embed a digital project into Kidblog.
