I have been pondering how to use QR codes in the classroom . My favorite use being to tape QR codes into old textbooks to make them relevant. The code pictured below goes to a YouTube video with directions on how to do those math problems. Note: I used a super sticky post it label so I wouldn’t damage my book and then taped the QR code on top of that.

QR Code Printing Guidelines & Best Practices 32 × 32 mm or 1.25 × 1.25 inches, excluding quiet zone (the white space included around the QR Code in the EPS) is the minimum size that guarantees that ALL camera phones on the market can properly read the QR Code. 26 × 26 mm or roughly 1 square inch, excluding quiet zone covers 90% of the phones on the market. - OUR CURRENT RECOMMENDATION The latest camera models, which have improved macro capabilities, can deal with QR Codes that are less than 10 mm (0.4 in) wide and high. For example, an iPhone 4 will be able to scan this size, but an iPhone 2/3.x with 2.0 megapixel camera and no autofocus may not. For good reader accuracy good contrast between the background and the bar color itself is very important. The bar code should have a dark color on a light background.
