40 interesting ways to use QR Codes in the classroom

Twelve Ideas for Teaching with QR Codes Updated 01/2014 As mobile learning becomes more and more prevalent, we must find effective ways to leverage mobile tools in the classroom. As always, the tool must fit the need. A Quick Tutorial QR stands for Quick Response. 1. Have students use QR to create resumes that link to other content such as their professional website or portfolio. 2. You can create QR for linking students to examples of quality work, whether it's PowerPoint or slideshare for a class presentation, or people speaking a foreign language specific to your current lesson. 3. Integrate QR with a PBL or Service Learning project where students can create the codes that will link to the content they create. 4. Save a few trees! 5. Award prizes by having students scan a code leading to an animation or badge. 6. Put codes in different areas of the room that will take students to different online activities, videos or content. 7. Have students check their answers by scanning the QR code after completing a test or assignment.

BenchPrep Is Codecademy For Any Subject, High School To Med School Books are not the best way to learn. To retain knowledge you have to interact with it, and that’s where BenchPrep comes in. The startup licenses textbooks from big publishers like McGraw Hill and converts them into interactive web and mobile learning courses. Today, BenchPrep announces its expansion beyond college admission test prep. The diagnostic tool and additional courses should help the 7-month old BenchPrep build on its existing base of 200,000 users, 7,000 of which are paying customers. BenchPrep users can choose from over 30 courses such as AP US History, SAT Math, California Bar Exam, and Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist — though it leaves computer programming education to Codecademy. I was surprised that big education publishers like McGraw Hill and Princeton Review would be willing to license their materials. In about 7 days, BenchPrep can convert any textbook, say one on Calculus that sells for $50, into an interactive course it can sell for $100.

QR Code Classroom Implementation Guide QR Codes (Quick Response Codes) are just barcodes. There is nothing fancy about them.

QR Code Easter Egg Hunt photo © 2008 Mallory Odam | more info (via: Wylio)This week I created a QR code Easter Egg Hunt for my sixth grade students. I wanted to share this early enough for others to have time to do something similar if they wanted even though the students will not come in for a few more days. This activity could be adapted for any subject but we are doing the activity in English/Language Arts. The specific concepts that the teachers wanted included were hyperbole, idioms, main idea, denotation, connotation and some of the prefixes and roots that were recently covered. Once I had the concepts I set to work creating the activity. I would be happy to share the entire document but for the sake of space I'll give a few examples here. Scan the code and complete the hyperboles found on the page: My teacher is so old she _ _ _ _ _ _ cavemen to start a fire. (1st letter) Another example: Scan the code and look under question #3. This QR code links to a webpage explaining these concepts. Happy Hunting!

Le business model Sciences Po XEnvoyer cet article par e-mail Le business model Sciences Po Nouveau ! Pas le temps de lire cet article ? Fermer Un modèle pour la faculté de demain ? L’Ecole libre des sciences politiques, créée à la fin du XIXe siècle et distillant depuis les futures élites de la haute administration, fut des années durant la machine de reproduction sociale de la “upper class”. A l’instigation de Richard Descoings, de brillants jeunes de banlieue mais aussi nombre de candidats étrangers sont venus mêler leurs ambitions qui les conduisent désormais très majoritairement vers le privé. Non vraiment, ce n’est ni une grande école ni une université ; plutôt une organisation hybride, dont le modèle alternatif a tellement changé que toute opinion que vous pourriez avoir à son endroit est à ranger dans le tiroir des idées toutes faites et des préjugés. Deux “scandales” rue Saint-Guillaume ont mis en émoi le landerneau, pourtant il ne s’agit pour cette école en transformation radicale que de dommages collatéraux.

Using QR codes for school communications By Nora Carr, APR, Fellow PRSARead more by January 13th, 2012 Because creating and sharing QR codes takes little time and no money, experimenting with this technology is low-risk and sends positive messages about your ed-tech prowess. Quick Response (QR) codes—those black-and-white squares that look like a cross between supermarket bar codes and postage stamps—have real potential for school communications. Created by a Japanese corporation in 1994, QR codes act like print-based hyperlinks to websites and social media networks. Found in newspapers, magazines, local TV news broadcasts, business cards, billboards, brochures, t-shirts, consumer product packaging, and just about anything else that can be printed, QR codes work by encoding URLs, contact information, geography coordinates, photos, and other text—in any language. Consumers access the codes via free QR reader applications available online.
