I love International Talk Like a Pirate Day (September 19)! Well, basically, I just love Pirates!! I usually do something with geocache treasure hunting on this day, but this year I’m adding QR Code Pirate Fun. I’m posting Pirate Jokes with QR Code answers around the school. I know this activity isn’t all that education (though I think understanding jokes is a great higher level thinking activity and it’s a great way to practice reading skills), but my main goal is to excite students (and hopefully teachers too) about QR Codes and iPod/iPad use. Students will be using the app i-nigma to find the answers to these jokes. I’ll let you know how it goes! Meanwhile, if you want to use these Pirate QR Code Jokes for Talk Like A Pirate Day,here’s where you can get them!
