iPad Pool!! Look at all the cuteness and learning going on in Mrs. Bradley's PK iPad Pool!!! (See above)
CHRISTINA DUNKIN (High School) -
(THIS IS SO COOL!!!!) Christina says, "...I have displayed a QR code on my wall that is designated as "Exiting the classroom." This code is attached to a Google form that asked the students for their name, class period and reason for leaving the room. When they return they scan a second code titled, "Returning to the classroom." This code ask them for their name. I saw the idea on Pinterest and implemented it as a means of collecting data on who leaves my room the most, what they are leaving for and how long they are gone."
