GoogleDocs+QR Codes+Fakebook

This is a great lesson plan that involoves 3 different web 2.0 tools to use in your classroom. It can be adapted to many subjects and pupils really love to work and cooperate with their peer friends.
Art for You and Me
The class is divided into 6 groups. Each team gets a card with instructions. On the card there is a qr code they need to scan. After they scan the qr code they know which artist they explore (learn about).
Then they open our sharable GoogleDocs, and write the names of the group members on top (next to the group's number).
The instuctions on the card:
star Search the internet for the following details:
  • Full name
  • Place of birth

  • job
  • Famous piece of art (song, picture)
  • What is special about that piece of art?
  • What is it about?
  • Add pictures to your summary.
  • Add YouTube videos to your summary.
