40 interesting ways to use QR Codes in the classroom

QR Codes – Lesson and Resources | Digital Learning World In response to recent interest in Quick Response codes I have created some lesson resources to introduce students to QR codes and provide them with some practical experience. The lesson also introduces students to blogging (Digital Learning World) and URL shortening (Bit.Ly and Goo.gl). Students are also encouraged to collaborate by recording their findings in a shared Google document. These resources are intended for Secondary students from Year 7 upwards. Students will need a PC/Laptop with a web cam and access to the Internet. Ideally, students will also use their smart phones. For further information please read the Lesson Outline: ICT Lesson – Introduction to QR Codes The Powerpoint lesson slides: Introduction to QR Codes – Powerpoint Slides Link to Google Document for students to log their results/progress (please take a copy and use this on your own Google Account – don’t forget to share it).

10 Ways to Use QR Codes in the Classroom QR Codes in the Classroom Mobile Learning | Q&A QR Codes in the Classroom Wyoming science teacher London Jenks not only allows mobile technologies in his classroom, but he's also learned how to maximize them as educational tools, tapping the devices for assessments, research, and even student scavenger hunts using QR codes. By Bridget McCrea08/31/11 At a time when schools are banishing student-owned mobile devices from their classrooms--or, at least making sure the disruptive laptops, tablets, and phones are powered down class begins--London Jenks is taking a decidedly different tack. A science teacher at Hot Springs County High School in Thermopolis, WY, Jenks welcomes iPhone- and Android-toting students into his classes. A Google-certified educator who teaches earth science, physics, chemistry, and astronomy, Jenks explainedhis reasons for letting down the walls that so many other instructors have erected during this "mobile" age and told us how the strategy has helped him be more effective as a teacher.

QR Codes in the school library by Kathy G This post looks at quick response (QR) codes – what they are, how they work, and how you can use them in your school library to excite and encourage your students.

A QR Code is a type of barcode that is readable by dedicated QR barcode readers and camera telephones. The code consists of black modules arranged in a square pattern on a white background. The information encoded may be text, URL, or other data*. Like me, you may have seen these codes in newspapers and magazines, on promotional material, in the corner of posters and wondered what they were all about. A square that consists of black and white squares that looks like an out of focus pixilated image? What’s all that about? First, watch this short, fun video from a primary class in Queensland to get an idea of how QR Codes are being used in the classroom, and then keep reading. QR Codes can provide an alternative access format for students who need additional support in reading and writing. The way QR Codes can be used in the classroom is only limited by our own and our students’ imagination. More ideas? What do you need to get up and going with QR Codes? MacBook

Using QR codes to create educational posters | Teacher Tech 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. While brainstorming ways QR codes can be used in the classroom I started making posters. Here is one for an English class, keep in mind these are just samples made by a math teacher Here is one I made for a historical timeline The timeline took me significantly longer than I anticipated, but it did get me to thinking that both of these would make great student projects! To create them I used Google Drawings. Update: I have created a website to organize all my QR code samples.

QR Codes Improve Web Access In the last week I have finally had the opportunity to use Quick Response (QR) codes in my classroom. I have found them simple, straightforward and very effective in improving access to digital resources. I have been thinking about ideas to use QR codes in the classroom for a long while and many colleagues have joined me in contributing to a shared “Interesting Ways” resource. It outlines many useful and innovative ways to utilise the QR codes in the classroom and around school. I have noticed that some people consider them to be exclusive to mobile devices. Another assumption I have spotted is that we use QR codes that are displayed (static) and we take the device to the code. We use the desktop version of the QuickMark software that is a free dowload. Now I did a mini experiment and monitored how many children had trouble loading a website that I gave them as a shortened (bit.ly) url – so not even the full address.
