25 Mar Making Mobile Meaningful — A Starting Point
Here are a few of the resources he shared for utilizing mobile devices students in and out of the classrooms:
Poll Everywhere: Students can text in answers to survey questions and graphs the results. (Eliminates the need for clickers.)
Word Lens: A mobile device’s camera is used to translate a text into another language.
iSeismograph: Turn your iPhone into seismograph.
Leafsnap: A great use of “the cloud” to create a plant identification guide. Limited for now, but great potential for future growth.
Google Translate: Use your phone to translate from one spoken language to another.
QR Code Generator: Generate QR codes that can engage students in new and creative ways.
QR Voice: Type in a sentence and then decide which language you want it translated to. The generated QR code will link to the translated sentence being spoken.
