  • QR Code

    About:

    QR Codes are digitized images that can redirect a device to a website or other spot on the internet.
    • How can I create one?  You can create one with an online generator or a QR Code creating app.
    • How do I share a QR Code?  You could email it, post it on your website or print it and hand it out.
    • Who would use a QR code?  Anyone who wants quick access to a website without typing in a URL.  
    • What age students would use QR Codes?  QR codes make sense in differing ways for people from 4-104!
    • Why would I use a QR Code in a school environment?  QR Codes can be used by pre-readers to access video directions (think math centers); They can be posted around the room to provide background information about classroom resources (think ELL);  They can be posted around the room to provide word bank information to support any classroom centers, materials, etc. (think all language learners);  They can be used anywhere you want to provide a depth of information beyond a 2D surface;  They can be used inside and outside to provide resources to people with mobile devices (think LEED information); they can be used to provide a link to your classroom website (think QR code in your newsletter);  They can be used to create a scavenger hunt (Mrs. Burk has some cool math ones!) ... I could go on and on - the sky's the limit!
    • Drawbacks about QR Codes:  You will need to have a QR Code Reader to access the web-resource embedded in the code.
    • Benefits of QR Codes:  You can maintain a static QR Code (printed, etc.) and change the content on the internet-end (your classroom website, etc.).  Some codes even let you change the associated web address if you like (Dynamic QR Codes).
