Library Access. What QR Codes Can Do For You! During one of my workshops this afternoon at Carondelet High School some asked for suggestions about using QR codes.

What QR Codes Can Do For You!

Here are some of the uses that I suggested. TagMyDoc is a tool that allows you to apply a QR code to Word documents and PDFs that are stored on your computer. Upload your document then TagMyDoc creates and applies a QR code to it. You can print the document with the QR code on it or simply project the QR code for your students to scan and get a copy of the document on their mobile devices.

Goo.gl is Google's URL shortening tool. QR Voice is a free tool that allows you to create QR codes that when scanned will play a short audio message. QR codes can be used to combine the physical world with the digital world.
