A series of different presentations took place and here were a selection of the idea from them. First up was an equally novice member of teachmeets. Kenny spoke all about the app Aurasma. This was interactive in which children can relate to pictures. When scanning the picture children can then see further images as a overlay.
It was then the turn of Rachel discussing about Off time table impact using google classroom. She discussed the different activities that the children took part in each week and the apps/programs that were used to aid this. Applications included:- Spreaker, Touchcast and Snapseed.
QR codes was the next topic of discussion. QR codes I have seen with my class is a fun interactive way that can help children's learning. The website QR code kaywa was suggested to produce the QR code by copying and pasting the URL. QR Wild and Class Tools are tools that can be used to create a scavenger hunt for children around the school.
From Stephan we were then inroduced to the term MOOC - Massive Open Online Courses. A variety of different places were suggested including
- Future learn
- Class Central
- Fiona Harvey - Scoopit
In summary I really enjoyed my first ever teachmeet and have lots of ideas to try and include in my teaching.
