So, here is an overview of the steps that we did to prepare the images:
Step 1) Download the digital images that students are used to seeing (from anchor charts, etc.) into a Google doc.
Step 2) Make the Google doc shared for "anyone with the link"
Step 3) Use the a URL shortener/ QR creator to make a QR code. This is the goo.gl shortener available in the Chrome store.
Step 5) Train students how to use a QR scan/ reader to access the images.
Once the students access the Google doc with all the images, you may have to choose > open in Safari in order to save them to the camera roll. You need to demonstrate and model this skill for the students. This is also a great opportunity to talk about digital citizenship with your students. Make sure that you cite your image sources and teach the students to do the same when they use the images on their blog. Using this process will streamline the blogging process, especially for younger audiences who are learning to blog.
