Creating a Community of Readers via QR Codes: Our Talking Library Project

A session at Bring IT, Together [ECOO & OASBO]

Thursday 24th October, 2013

3:00pm to 3:45pm (EST)

School libraries are doing a great job of updating their collections with amazing reading material, but still students can struggle to find something to read.

To enhance and expand the community of readers in our school we are employing easy to use audio apps to create book reviews recorded by our own students and staff. QR codes linking to the audio are placed on the back of the books themselves and around the library and school highlighting various collections and popular items. With a simple click students can hear people they know talk about books they are considering.

Modelling reading by staff of various departments and students creating their own audio reviews helps to bring it together as an interactive and empowering experience.

Come see some of the ways we used this technology to facilitate building relationships amongst students, staff and the literature we love.

Practical examples for classrooms extensions across departments will also be shared!
