As I mentioned in my earlier post, I have developed the term ME-Learning which includes both mobile applications as a part of mobile learning and blogs or wikis as e-learning tools.
Here are some more apps along with some tips to help you collect the materials you have created with apps, in your blog or wiki.
How 2.0 Use QR Codes with Your Students:
- Let your students set some goals for learning English, create QR codes by choosing “Create Text Code”, and upload them to your class blog or wiki.
- Divide your students into groups of three, give each group a part of the story in a QR code. Ask them negotiate to find the story, and assign them some roles, let one student from each group responsible of reading the QR code.
You can also generate QR codes with qrstuff.com. As for the educational technology course I am conducting, I asked the participants to go to http://www.qrstuff.com/ and write what they hope to achieve by the end of the course. I also asked them to e-mail their “QR” codes to me. Finally I uploaded all the QR codes to our course wiki. (Please click on the image below to view full size)
Linoit is an online stickies service that offers stickies and canvases. It is available on iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. You can create online stickes and canvases via linoit and access them on your PC. You can also upload photos and videos from your iPhone.
How 2.0 Use Linoit with Your Students:
- Have your students practise tenses by writing sentences on the wall.
- Ask your students write their opinions on a topic.
- Post a video onto the wall, ask a few questions and have your students write their responses.
- Ask your students post the words they have learnt that week onto the wall.
