  • LFP Sixth Grade Book Trailers and QR Codes - 2015

    Posted by Frank Kleyn on 5/20/2016

    lfp book trailers Ms. Tucker and I worked together on a QR code project that involved having students write, share, and film book talks about Award Nominees/Winners.  After the students filmed the book talks using iPads, we transferred the files and uploaded them to Google Drive.  Once the movie is in Google Drive, we were able to create a QR code based on the URL. The QR code can be taped to the back of the book or displayed on the book’s shelf. When it is scanned with an iPad or phone, the viewer can watch an engaging video book talk.  You'll find the QR codes and books in the LFP Library.
