Fifth grade FUSE SS student worked this week to complete their  “Causes of the American Revolution” QR Code timelines.  The students used the QR Code Generator website, along with the Keynote app on their iPads to complete this technology based assessment.  Using the QR code site, students shared their learned knowledge about the events that led to the start of the Revolution.  After creating the QR code, the icon was added to their Keynote timeline display allowing others to access their knowledge by the use of technology.
