We plan to use Screen Chomp and Ask3 for formative assessment this year with our students at Welcome Elementary. These apps are cross-curricular and will allow teachers to evaluate students’ understanding of concepts and skills.
We would also like to post their Screen Chomp screen recordings on the teachers’ blogs so others can see their work. Here is a very simple hand-out about how to do this: Screen Chomp Hand Out
Here is a YouTube video about Screen Chomp: Screen Chomp Video
Here is a more detailed Hand-Out about how to use Screen Chomp.

Ask3 Videos are contained within the App for students and teachers to view on the Bulletin Board. Students and teachers can add comments, critique and collaborate using this App. Here is a video about using Ask3. Ask3 Video
Here is a Hand-Out about Ask3.
Good luck as you share tutorials created by your students.
Here are some great examples of students sharing their knowledge with others using Ask3, School Tube, Video recordings, and Edmodo. Students remember 90% of what they teach others. Let them teach!

QR Codes are a quick and easy way for students to access information. Watch this video of 4th grade students at Welcome Elementary as they use QR codes for math and behavior incentives. QR Code Video
Here is a handout about how to create QR Codes while you are using Mozilla Firefox. QR Code Generator for FireFox
You can also create QR Codes for text, phone numbers, urls, facebook, etc.. using the website. www.qrcode.kaywa.com
Click more on the page and it will give you the option to add text. The 4th graders wrote their math problems, typed the answers in the text box and created a QR Code for their answers. Students from their class and other classes could scan the QR codes when they walked down the hall past their bulletin board to see the correct answer to the word problems.
Here is a fantastic resource for you to learn more about how to use QR Codes by Kathy Schrock.
