BYOD for Math
Recently, CMS 6th grade Math held a BYOD day (bring your own device). Students used their own devices (cell phone, tablet, iPad, etc.) with a QR Code Reader to learn Math while doing a Scavenger Hunt. The topic was Solving One-Step Equations and Inequalities. The object of the scavenger hunt was to solve a problem in one location then use the QR code reader to find your answer at another location. The new location was your next problem to solve.
As you can tell by the photos in Media Gallery, students said it was lots of fun and loved using their phones in class.
