Reflection: Lesson Planning Famous Father Kino - Section 1: What Makes You Famous?


QR codes are a great tool in any lesson where students are going to use iPads or iPods. In this lesson, I used a QR generator on the Internet to form the code that students would use. You can create QR codes to link to specific sites, articles, or you can use them to hide answers to questions. I create them in other subject, like math. I write down equations on 3X5 cards and place the QR Code that hides the answer at the bottom. Students grab a card, solve the equation, and use their iPad to scan the QR Code to check their answer. This type of check in and practice can be used in any subject.
