So I'm taking a MultiMedia class for recertification credit and I learned something really cool tonight. Let me preface this by saying that I am not the most technologically gifted art teacher in the world! I learned how to create QR Codes and create a presentation using those codes in under two hours! My project, which I created with my friend and fellow art teacher, Mikey, was a map of our metro area that allows viewers to click on the QR codes on a city map to find public art installations. We even put a video into a code that talks about the beginning of the Master Plan for public art in our town so parents can know where to take their kids to see the art.
This may seem like yesterday's news to you young'uns out there in blogville, but to an old saw like me, this was pretty exciting stuff! I may even have to join the real world and buy a smartphone just so I can read these cute little critters. The next thing we are going to do is have the kids write about their artwork and then do podcasts with QR codes. WooHoo! We're having fun now!
