Icebreakers that use Technologyand Fit with 21st Century Studentsfrom: http://teachbytes.com/2012/08/05/21st-century-icebreakers-10-ways-to-get-to-know-your-students-with-technology/
Here's how I used QR Codes for my ice-breaker:I typed ice-breaker questions into Google Docs (use the presentation feature, it's just like PowerPoint).After I typed the question, I clicked the "share" button on my Google Doc, clicked available to "anyone with the link" and copied and pasted the link to share.You will have to type each ice-breaker question into it's own separate file (so that it can have it's own link from Google Docs).I then went to the site Kaywa QR creator to make a code from the link (just copy & paste the Google link).After you paste the link, click "generate free" and your new qr code will appear.I copied and pasted the QR code into a Word document. (I used the Avery business card paper template).I printed QR codes on business cards & laminated.I put the cards in a jar where the students can choose randomly which questions they scan to answer next.I use Qrafter (free QR scanner app) to scan the cards.
