Pinspired Thursday

Just a Primary Girl has started a new Thursday linky titled, "Pinspired Thursday." I thought I'd link up with her to share a pin I've recently come across, and will use  in my classroom tomorrow.  The pin is titled "Reflection Facilitated by QR Codes." These QR codes were created by Tony Vincient at Learning in Hand. 

Tomorrow is our last day with iPads:( And I thought it would be a good idea to use Tony's reflection qr code generator to reflect on the year. Each time students scan the qr code they are asked one of 25 plus reflection questions (I wonder how he set this up). Some of the questions students will see are: "What was most challenging?", "What helped your learning?", and "When something got hard, what did you do to help yourself?" 

Students will be required to answer ten questions and they may choose to work alone or with a partner. Students will have the option of typing out their answers or having a partner ask them the questions (interview style) and recording them. Tony does offer a cube that has six different ways students can answer each question. I've chosen not to use that part this late in the year, but will definitely try it out next year. You can read more about this pin, as well as a host of other qr code ideas, on my QR Code Pinterest board

I would love to hear how you have used qr codes in your classroom. Please comment below.
