QR Codes and les régions physiques

This past week, we've been fortunate to use the brand new school iPads for our learning.
Students are learning more and more about the 7 physical regions of Canada. They have chosen 2 regions to compare their natural resources, climate, vegetation and more. Not only are they using textbooks in the classroom, but they are using the QR scanner on the iPads which gives them access to links to appropriate websites about the regions. Students are also using videos from discoveryeducation.ca on the iPads as another research tool.
I gave students all kinds of resources in the classroom and independently, they chose a resource and worked at their own pace. To their surprise, the textbooks seem to have all the answers ;)
We'll continue next week!
