You never, never know

QR code er verbs

You, too, can learn er verbs in French!

You never know what will happen in a class using technology. It is true, like any other lesson you can rigidly control the input and sequencing of events. When you do not  , it is important to allow a natural flow of learning and discovery to occur and it will surprise you just how much you can achieve. You need to remember the pattern – create the content, share the content, get feedback, reshare the improved version. It’s how it naturally flows in a lesson with ICT. In my double lesson with Year 8s I needed to introduce the concept of verb groups and then focus on ER verbs in particular. I also needed to ensure the students were doing their bit for the languages world challenge. I could go from images of verb conjugations to using my Promethean board to explain it with custom flip charts and my own explanations with the electronic pen and then back to the slide presentation I had with all the key information. After that we got our iPads up and joined the class I had made on Showbie. Half the students picked that up really quickly and the other half got there with a bit of help from their friends. We were then ready to work on the assignment to hand in. About 15 mins into it some students realised they had no idea what we were doing and were getting muddled. I looked up a good online explanation with a video of verb endings in French with an exercise. Those who didn’t know how to do what we were doing were so happy but it was hard for them to read the URL from the board . It was very long. I cut and pasted it into Powerpoint and made it huge text. Then I went to my favourite QR code site. I made the code (left) and bingo! Some had the phone app or could get it. Some could get it on their iPads and very quickly they could share that information. They were so pleased. These year 8s really like to be actively involved in their learning and using technology to speed it up. As a teacher you just need to be able to make it all happen.
