QR Codes and a Green Screen Art Gallery

We have been exploring with our new green screen in our Vanier MakerSpace. Some students in Grade One made Digital Creations using Doodle Buddy App. Students were photographed examining the art in front of a green screen. We replaced the green background with art and added fancy frames from Photo Frames. Thanks to @fuglefun for the great idea. Check it out!

Other classes explored using QR Codes – Quick Response Codes like this one – to view peer work on-line. We then created our own QR codes using Hello Crayon App.

We also read Neil Pasricha’s new book Awesome is Everywhere  and used PicCollage App to Zoom In to the important parts of some of our favourite picture books. Have a look at some of these great creations here.

We designed a cool new bulletin board for in our developing MakerSpace. “Let’s Get Thinking Outside of this Box”. Students are enjoying the comfy cushions under the counter. What a great place to work on our digital creations!
