QR Codes – Lesson and Resources

QR Codes – Lesson and Resources
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).
