QR Codes in the Classroom and School Library

Here's another preview for our upcoming conference. When evaluating the data from our conference survey, "quick and easy technology tools" was highly requested. Michelle Wilson, NBCT and School Librarian for North Highland Elementary, will be presenting a session on QR Codes in the Classroom & School Library. Below is a preview of her session. I'm sure all of you will want to be sure to mark your calendar for this event.

QR Codes are popping up everywhere in mainstream culture. Churches, grocery stores, restaurants, retail stores and airports are using them. I've seen them on everything from mobile netbook carts to raisin boxes! What's the big deal about these little squares? Attend my session at the Alabama NBCT Network Conference on January 28th to discover the power of QR Codes in the hands of your students.

A Day in the Life of a Digital Teacher

Our annual conference, which will be held at Spain Park High School on January 28, 2012, will soon be upon us.  After evaluating the online survey, the overwhelming number one topic requested was "staying organized in a digital world." We are fortunate to have Dr. Frank Buck, the get-organized guru, presenting two different sessions. Here is a preview of one of the sessions that he will be presenting. I'm sure none of you will want to miss it. Be sure to mark your calendar now.
