I’ve often thought about the idea of the children having ICT exercise books. They could use these for jotting down ideas, sketching designs etc. They could also, of course, stick in printed work. Meaning we could easily see completed work alongside the plans and ideas that led up to it. I’m also thinking that the children could use these books in other lessons where there are links to ICT and they would also stay with the children as they move up a year group. The children would only get a new book when they have filled the old one.
One thing that has made me even more keen on the idea is the use of QR codes as a link to work posted online via the ICT department blog. This evening I dropped into an online discussion hosted by @ianaddison and @colport about the use of QR codes and I also have to thank @ideas_factory and @DeputyMitchell for inspiring me to develop this idea further. Thanks guys.
