Delicious Resources on Digital Footprints & More


Right now, I'm doing a deep investigation into the "curriculum wisdom" paradigm, which has a large "backwards design" component with a 3S (subject, student, society) overlay.

"QR" stands for quick response, and it is a barcode that can link to multiple kinds of data, including URL links, addresses, and text. I just read an article recently about companies wanting more artistic bar codes for their products, they call them "vanity barcodes" (see Wall Street Journal).
