QR Code Generator: QR Stuff Free Online QR Code Creator And Encoder For T-Shirts, Business Cards & Stickers How to set up a QR Code Treasure Hunt 1. The Background For several lessons, the students had been slowly piecing together the Mystery of the Franklin Expedition in History lessons. Through pictures, snippets of evidence, and a roleplay exercise, the students formulated their own questions for investigation, framed provisional answers, and then reframed their assumptions as more evidence was progressively provided to them. At the end of the research phase, students were required to produce an essay introducing the mystery and answering the five key questions they settled upon as being the most important to solve. 2. With students just about to start their essay assignment, a series of 20 codes were hidden in random locations around the school. Students were put into small teams: each of these teams contained at least one person owned a mobile device (e.g. phone, IPod Touch) which could decode the QR codes (note: an internet connection is not required - the QR codes decode as text files). 3.

Turn any Design into a QR Code, its Free | QR Codes | Life is not a race to be first finished Today in class I introduced my class of Year Fours to QR codes. I had used to create the codes in the first place. It prints off the QR Codes and questions for you in one click. I confused myself a little with the trail as I put them out so next time I would be careful to number the codes on the back because they all look the same. I checked that the trail was working at morning tea while I was on duty to make sure that I had got it right. I talked with the class about what a QR code was and how they may be useful.

I used Each QR code site required the children to take a photo as proof that they had got to the correct waypoint along the way. I then set the children off, three at a time to follow the trail with me timing them with my iPhone.

Aiheen oppiminen vaatii toisilta enemmän, toisilta vähemmän toistoja. Opettajaltakin se vaatii toistoa ”jaa, kerro, vähennä, pudota, jaa, kerro, vähennä…”. Olemme ennen ipadejakin luokassa harrastaneet screencasteja, eli näytöltä otettujen videoiden käyttämistä opettelussa. Matematiikka on herkullinen aihe lyhyisiin klippeihin, jossa joko ope tai oppilas selittää ja tekee samalla laskua eteenpäin. Tällä kertaa ope teki viiteen seuraavaan matematiikan kappaleeseen lyhyen videoklipin, joka ladattiin youtubeen ja sille haettiin myös QR-koodi. Itseopiskeluunkin toimivaa materiaalia; asian voi etkona opiskella itsenäisesti ja edetä omaan tahtiin tai sitten kerrata useamman kerran, pysäyttää ja tutkia miten asia nyt menikään.. PS.

Toutes les tailles | QR Code Periodic Table with Symbols Reader Engagement With Transmedia: How To Use QR Codes I love our little writer’s community, and it’s always a thrill to discover the new and interesting things that people are using to market their books and engage readers. In this post, guest blogger Emily Craven explains how you can use one simple thing – a QR code – to give your readers a more interactive experience.

In the modern day it seems like we equate the amount of money we spend to the quality of the experience. Seeing the view from the top of the Eiffel Tower is more prestigious then the view from below. We are the masters of taking advantage of the free, free publicity, social media platforms, free ‘shelf space’, DIY formatting. And yet when it comes to really taking advantage of our media, integrating other forms of storytelling with the written word we pull up short like a kid with a wedgy. The funny thing is, you don’t need money to stand out from the big six …

I’ve seen the funny little codes in magazines and advertisements, and I understood that if you had an app on your phone you could scan them and get…somewhere. Beyond that I didn’t give them much thought. However, it seems I’ve been reading about them everywhere recently and they really can have some practical uses – even in the classroom . Getting Started The first thing I did was get a free QR reader app for my iPhone – I got one called Qrafter .
