In September 2012, we began the Banting Book Talks pilot project. In this project, students are recorded giving a “book talk” of a piece they have read. The recordings are around two minutes in length, and the student will describe their book and offer a critique. Recordings will then be uploaded to the Banting Library YouTube channel. Following this, a Quick Response, or QR, Code will be generated. This code will be turned into a sticker and placed on the cover of the book in the Banting library. Thus, the code can be scanned and students can watch a video of their peer describing the video can be watched.
Our school is the first in Thames Valley to offer this program, and we are very excited about its potential.
