For schools that have invested in iPads or tablets as learning tools or allow their students to bring in their own devices (BYOD), QR Codes have proven to be a great timesaver for sharing links and distributing information en masse. Projecting large QR Codes on a screen so they can be scanned from around the class makes it easy for students to access the same content on their own devices and interact with it individually instead of passively looking at the interactive whiteboard.
