119 Using QR Codes in Teaching and Learning: Delivering the dream
QR codes. Mobile/webcam scannable images (2D barcodes) that with the right software will translate into defined pieces of information/tasks. i.e. URL, some text, a pre-defined SMS message.
Library dynamically generates QR codes, their code is free and they can send it.
Is it like Natives and Immigrants? Which basically meant old people don’t understand stuff.
Visitor/Resident isn’t the same sort of thing. It’s a sliding scale, but best described as 2 distinct things.
Visitors, when they log off, leave nothing behind. Residents partially live online, they have a persona online which partially remains behind when they log off.
Resident likes being communal, but that doesn’t necessarily mean they are collaborative. Can workk autonomously as part of a collective. Not a hive mind. Micro-celebrity, the individual as a brand.
Being adept at one technology doesn’t necessarily translate to being good at another.
Visitors want to use the internet for s specific task, but won’t go beyond that. Goal oriented.
Educational culture isn’t a skill.
need to understand how/why to use something in order to /use/ it. teaching someone how to point/click use it doesn’t mean they ‘get’ it.
Need to understand which of your students are visitors or residents, proportional, and then understand the technology, is it a tool or is it a space?
Not about academic or technical skills, but about culture and motives.
