I have always been amazed by time-lapse photography. Now there are even ways, using digital technology, to time-lapse world maps from as far back as history can go. This post will share some of these maps with you so that you may share them with your students.
Maybe you have seen some of the strange-looking images like the one at the right. These are QR Codes that first became popular in Japan a few years back and thanks to the earthquake and tsunami we learned about the in the US. If you are already familiar with them and have a scanner, go ahead and scan that one – don’t worry it is just going to some information about me. Most businesses have recognized the power of marketing using these neat little barcodes and have even designed codes that resemble their logos. This post will give you some resources and examples about using QR Codes in the classroom.
Tweeting does not always have to be about reading 140 characters or searching for interesting tools or techniques to use in the classroom or trying to make connections to strengthen your PLN. Tweeting can also be fun – or at least the way we view the tweets and their impact around the world. Using some of the free tools that are available online, you can visualize tweets in different ways and this might even help to attract the tweeting interest of students and staff. This post will discuss some of those tools as well as provide links to other tools that you might want to explore yourself.
