Class set of iPads with apps preloaded
Evernote App
My Movie Maker App
QR Code Maker App
QR Code Reader and Scanner
Activities
1. Students will read a book that interests them on their grade level/lexile
level.
2. Provide each student with a mobile device with needed apps preloaded.
3. First, using Evernote students will draft a script for a short
commercial/book trailer advertising their book. The commercial should
include information concerning the books characters, setting, plot, and
key events. They should also give a recommendation.
4. Using the camera on the iPad, students will record their commercial.
5. Using My Movie Maker, students will upload and edit their commercial.
6. Students create a QR code for their commercial using QR Code Maker on
the iPad.
7. Students print the QR Code and cut it out. They may design a way to
creatively display the QR Code in the Media Center.
8. Using QR Code Reader and Scanner, students can view each others QR
Code commercials.
Differentiation: Students may be grouped together as book buddies and given
the option of reading the same book (if more than one copy of a book is available).
Students may then work together to complete the assignment. This will need to be
determined by the teacher and may take into account reading/lexile levels of
students. Even if students do not read the same book, peer tutors/helpers may

assist students who have technology issues after the initial storyboard has been
written.
