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.

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.

Treasure Map

The Treasure Map is a strategy I use to help my students progress through levels in a self-paced environment without setting deadlines for them. My students record when they start a level and when they end a level. If they complete the level in a given amount of time, they receive a piece of the Treasure Map. When my students complete four levels within the given time, they earn a free A (like contracting for an A). This strategy would also work with other forms of rewards, not just awards linked to a grade or extra credit.

Small-Group Instruction
Guided Microscope Investigations

Guided Microscope Investigations are investigations done by two students. The student pairings are usually chosen by the students or made by me as a result of the students’ progress on their current level. During these investigations, students examine slides they've created during labs. They work as a team to complete a task related to the content being covered in class. Students often record what they see in the microscope using Educreations, an app on the iPad. As a result of having a blended classroom where students progress in a self-paced way, I’m able to provide this one-on-one guided instruction without having to worry about what the rest of the class is or should be doing.
