QR Codes for Labs

QR codes are simple and easy to make codes that allow classroom resources, like videos, websites, and assignments to be accessed with little effort. These codes can be made easily using the Chrome extension goo.gl URL shortener or a website like qrstuff.com. They can be displayed on an interactive whiteboard, printed on an assignment, or printed and taped to a wall at a station or on a lab desk. QR codes take away the barrier of typing in long URLs or shortened website links, and get students to resources quickly.

Strategy Explanation
 
 
I created this screencast to show one of the tools I use to create QR codes. Goo.gl URL Shorterner is a great chrome extension to use to make QR codes quickly. It not only creates a shortened link, but creates a QR code you can copy and paste onto a document to share, display, or print for your students. I've found this tool can easily be used by my students, as well as by me in our blended classroom.
Strategy Explanation
 
 
I created this screencast to demonstrate how I use qrstuff.com to create QR codes for my classroom. This particular website is very easy to use, and gives me several options for how I can share resources with my students via QR codes.

Stakeholder Collaboration
Jessi's Approach to Collaboration & Communication

Communicating and collaborating with both colleagues and students' families, is crucial in a blended environment. This is especially true if a teacher is doing something that looks very different from other teachers at her school. Check out how Jessi communicates and collaborates with both her colleagues at school and her students' families and how her methods of communication and collaboration have evolved over time.

 
Instructional Planning
Jessi's Approach to Planning

Planning is an essential part of a blended teacher’s practice. In blended environments, where students can be at different points in a course on various modalities, blended teachers need to be very intentional about how they plan. Check out the video below to see how Jessi plans for instruction in her blended classroom.


 
Academic Culture
Gamification

Gamification is the process of adding game elements to an environment that is not traditionally a game. I use Gamification as a strategy in my blended learning classroom to motivate my ninth grade students to engage in the curriculum and to buy in to my social and behavioral expectations--all while keeping learning fun! We have two games going on in our classroom---our academic game and our behavioral game. Our academic game is based around the storyline of the Isle of Nosredna and features an island-based theme with a leaderboard ranking based on students' engagement in our self-paced learning environment. Our behavioral game, using the Classcraft online tool, is based on health points, experience points, battles, and powers. Students work as teams to keep each other "alive" and progressing in both games.
