tech-tip-tuesday

Have you tried incorporating QR codes into your classroom? QR (quick response) codes are super easy to create and are a fun way for students to get to use their cellphones in the classroom. To create QR codes there are a variety of websites/tools out there to do it.

To create QR codes:

To scan QR codes:

  • Google Goggles (for Android)
  • With ios 11, you can use your iPhone or iPad’s camera. No need for an app. ios 11 will automatically scan the QR code and a link will appear. Click the link to go to the page.
  • Snapchat. Seriously. With Snapchat open, point the camera at the code and hold your finger over the image to read it.

So What if . . .

  • Students created QR codes on submitted projects to enhance the interactivity.
  • You used QR codes to generate a Google Form for peer-to-peer feedback, reviews, or for peer-editing with essays.
  • You used QR to create a digital scavenger hunt.
  • You used QR codes with a BreakOutEdu (I have this kit!)
  • Incorporating QR with homework to help extend the learning with extra resources.
