iMovie

So you have a project.  You have to make a presentation about the novel you just read.  You could go with the old standby “The PowerPoint,” but do you really want to stand up in front of the class and go slide by slide by slide by slide by slide by slide by…I think you get my point.

Well, why not try iMovie!  You can add video and still photos (to make your PowerPoint show up as pictures simply go to save as and where it says PowerPoint hit the drop down menu and choose JPEG).  iTunes has music you can use or you can check out Creative Commons to find music that goes with the mood you are trying to create.  Check out our intro video if you don’t believe me!

QR Codes

Alright, hopefully all of you reading this know what a QR code is…No?  Ok, a QR code stands for Quick Response Code.  This barcode looking thing is designed to take you directly to a webpage.  I don’t know about you, but I’ve had plenty of issues trying to type in a web address.  This easily allows you to access a webpage without any issue or fuss.

How do you access these codes, you may ask.  With an app.  There are a plethora of QR readers in both the iTunes Store and the Google Play Store.  Here are some of the ones we have used:
