Thanks Tony, as David mentioned - it was really refreshing! I am now trying to get to the bottom of QR codes...

Thanks - the meeting was really interesting.
Sorry I was a bit late - I ended up having to drive the minibus to take some Year 10s to a maths competition. Apparently I had agreed to do this ages ago, but I have no recollection of this!
Still trying to work out why my webcam won't work...

Thanks for those that attended and put up with my face, voice and rammel... and a phone call.

Really enjoyed tonight.

Please see the link posted by Victoria for the meeting.

I'll be setting up a feedback page on the Wiki over the weekend.

I was shocked when it was mentioned that new Nokias had a QR reader, and then disappointed that my 6300 didn't have one.  I followed the link via the PE pages to the Kaywa reader but it wasn't available for my new phone.  I then had a Pepsi moment and via their site was directed to http://www.i-nigma.com/personal/GetReader.asp open the site from your phone [not via opera] and the reader is sent straight back.  I then used the content generator to start playing, fantastic and really far more straighforward than I realised.  Looking forward to geo-caching, orienteering, printing clues on stickers, stickers with comments on them directed at students after marking thier books ...

Does anybody have a link to QR content generator software which I can download please.  I can generate on line but I think students may stay on task better if I can separate this task from our poor rural internet.  I am thnking along the QR word wall continuum.

I also contemplated putting on a shirt and tie and pretending I was a teacher.

Thanks to Tony; I enjoyed it very much and I do hope we can get a regular phone call in every meeting -maybe if we circulate Tony's number we can set up a rota to call him each time the meeting is on?  ;D
