Jamestown QR Codes at Clearbrook

Students in Mrs. Schlosser’s class used QR codes, iPads, and videos to explore Jamestown!  It was an adaptation of the geocaching activity I did with students last year.  This time, instead of finding boxes in the school yard with questions in them (it was way too cold), students scanned QR codes placed in the halls of the school.  The QR codes asked questions, and students used videos loaded on the iPads from HistoryIsFun.org to answer them.  We did learn it was important to spread the QR codes far enough a part so that student groups didn’t feel crowded by other groups.  They all had fun and learned about Jamestown too!
