In the Gravitational Potential and Kinetic Energy worksheet students have the ability to scan a QR code with any mobile device (iPhone, android, tablet, etc) to get an instant tutoring session on the assignment. The QR code at the top of the assignment is linked to a video I created which covers the basics of how to solve the questions in front of them on their sheet of paper. The tutoring video is approximately 10 minutes long and will help to increase their understanding of the concept and get a good start on the assignment. This is just one of many of the QR tutor video worksheets I have created which makes the assignments more engaging for today's students that are all very engaged in technology.
There are four advantages to this type of assignment vs. traditional worksheets:
#1.) Students can scan the QR code and get help from my video which helps them get off to a better start on the worksheet.
#2.) If you are blessed to have students with parents that are involved in their education often the parents will scan the videos with their child and get started on the assignment together if it is assigned as homework.
#3.) Students love using technology, I allow my students to use their phones and tablets for all my assignments and labs which all have some QR code or technology integration.
#4.) The more QR coded assignments you use the less repetitive questions you will get as a teacher. Many of the questions students have are answered by the video which students scan and watch. Less repetitive questions as a teacher will help free up your time to intervene and enrich with more students.
*I have been doing QR coded assignments for my students for some time now and the students vastly prefer them to traditional worksheets/assignments/homework. I hope you find this product useful.
