As you would most likely be aware, I am a massive fan of QR Codes and there application within the classroom. Since discovering them in 2008 I have gone on to blog extensively about how I have used them in the classroom and ideas for possible future activities, with one of my all time favourite ideas being QR Coded posters. (If you are are still unsure what a QR Code is I suggest watching the video here)
In the Physical Education classroom QR Codes posters have enormous potential and a number of PE Teachers have been using them within their classes to effectively duplicate their teaching, while ultimately moving towards a more student centred approach. So I with this in mind I wanted to share with you two high quality examples of these posters in action.
The following example by @Joeyfeith from www.thephysicaleducator.com effectively combines text, pictures and video into a one stop package for skill development. (See example above). Simply Print them out, laminate and display them in your Gymnasium for a great self paced individualised instructional activity.
The following QR Code on the right, links to a video created by @alex76thomas whom utilised the fantastic mobile app “Coaches Eye” to produce a video narration and telestration highlighting the key aspects to the ready position in Volleyball. The video highlights just how powerful the combination of a QR code and instructional video can truly be. To top it all off this entire process was completed in only a couple of steps
- Film your footage using the Coaches Eye App
- Complete the narration and telestration during playback, calling out the key performance points
- Upload the video to hosting site from inside the app, such as YouTube or the Coaches Eye website.
- Use the URL from the video and a website such as www.qrstuff.com to produce the QR Code
- Scanning the code using a mobile application such as Redlaser or QR Droid will instantly playback the video below
