  • Dear elketeaches -- Thanks for your comment!! Here's a few ideas: *OR*...Buy 2-4 iPod touch generation 4's! Download the iNigma app & use them in school for this kind of activity! I sync a bunch of FREE apps on ours (and we only have 2!) and it's all good! *OR*....Get admin support & create a parent permission slip - then the day before the lesson & tell kids that their homework is to download the QR code scanner app & bring in their phones/mobile devices tomorrow! SHARE the devices in small groups! Never take No for an answer -- Find a way around ;-) ~Gwyneth
    PS. Been invited to Australia in August w/ Joyce Valenza for a 3 city workshop tour - hope you can catch us!
