Update on my garden: Currently my celosia has changed into two colors (red, and orange) Also more flowers have blossomed from my Zinca. The other plants are doing just fine and growing each day! :)
This week I made tacos for my friend James by using all-organic vegetables from Trader Joe's (my favorite place to shop). The recipe is super simple. I put the taco in a pan and added taco seasoning, cooking the meat on medium/high heat until completely brown. I then cut up some ortganic lettuce, tomatoes, and onions and added mild salsa. Served up inside a warm tortilla
(not organic... whoops!)
This week I read an extremely interesting article titled "3 Ways to use QR Codes in the Classroom." QR codes are used in Boyne City Highschool to provide near instantaneous access to frequently used resources. For example, Aaron Fritzche (an English teacher) posts QR codes to each student's desk of various resources such as the class website. Furthermore, these QR codes are also used for students to share work on an online bulletin board and to collect surveys from the students. Reading this article has made me really consider all of the possibilities QR codes can hold in the future in terms of accessibility. I really liked the idea of using QR codes to easily share my syllabus on each student's desk and I could definitely see myself using this in my future classroom. QR codes are short for "quick response" and I can see exactly this happening through using them. After this article I watched a TEDEd video on "The magic of QR codes in the classroom" which reiterated the usefulness of QR codes. Another pro of QR codes given in this video was student's newfound interest in the classroom because they felt more engaged through using QR codes.
