So many exciting technology showcases took place during class today. A highlight for me was becoming more familiar with coding. We had the opportunity to gain a litte bit of experience by playing around with Scratch; a tech tool I will definitely be introducing to my future students. The website provides students with modules to complete so they can learn how to create their own online games, really neat and easy to follow.
As for the rest of class, we briefly covered the following topics:
GAFE: We were encouraged to work through certification modules, which can be found here!
Virtual Reality: Unfortionately, children below the age of 13 are not supposed to engage through VR. However, we learned about accessible resources on campus to explore further if desired.
QR codes: We learned about some cool ways to incorporate QR codes into the classroom to enhance student learning. For example, tutorials on worksheets. I think this is a great way to support students in working at their own pace.
Slides from the class can be accessed here!
I’ve had a wonderful time in EDCI 336 and I’m so excited about all the doors that have been opened for me moving forward.
