Transcript: Student's using Web 2.0 to demonstrate their learning... Gifted students often need to have the ability to move when learning. QR codes add an interactive component to the gifted classroom. Teachers can create a QR Code Museum, Gallery, or QR Code scavenger hunts. Why? Computer technology provides gifted students with the immediate answers they so often desire. Quick Response (QR) codes make learning with technology easier for students and motivates and engages them in new ways. QR codes allow teachers to create and employ a convenient and engaging strategy with their learners. Continued... Mary Kaitlyne Caudle Eller EDUC-512 Campbell University Gifted students require learning that motivates and challenges them as well as supports their learning styles and needs. Technology can ensure student motivation and engagement by providing choice of content, tools and resources, along with adaptation to student learning preferences. Technology also provides for extension and enrichment of classroom curriculum. Technology encourages 21st century skill creation with an emphasis on collaboration and critical thinking (Eckstein, 2009). Educators can ensure differentiation for all students by providing an authentic learning environment with multiple levels of learning which encourages higher-level thinking, creativity and collaboration (Schweizer & Kossow, 2007). One example of using Web 2.0 to differentiate learning: QR Codes. Guided Practice in the math classroom... Students can work to answer math task cards with QR codes at stations or desks. After they solve the problem on the task card, the students use the QR code reader on their SMART device to check their answer. Beyond PowerPoint Benefits of Web 2.0 in the Gifted Classroom Using QR Codes in the classroom Gifted student's can utilize Web 2.0 tools to demonstrate their learning and highlight their creativity. Most of these tools provide the opportunity for differentiation, collaboration, enrichment, product sharing, and deeper critical thinking which are necessary for gifted students (Kieler, 2010). Task Cards with QR Codes offer chances for students to work together, engage in math talk, check their work in a non-threatening way, and practice a skill (e.g., two step equations). Differentiation occurs by including past skills (e.g., one step equations) and challenge station(s) where the teacher can assist.
