Watch this: Google Docs can automatically generate QR Codes Did you know that Google Docs has support for QR codes built-in? That’s right, if you know the right function, the Spreadsheets app can generate QR codes with whatever inputs you like. Don’t believe us? Watch this video for the feature in action: As you can see, there are four input columns (First Name, Last Name, Phone, and Email) that are combined into the output column (QR Code). His WordPress blog explains what he was trying to achieve: Earlier today I needed to input a list of around 30 contacts from a Google spreadsheet into my phone.

2013-14 DE CCSS Leadership Academy - home Créer des livres enrichis : un usage des QRcodes pour aider à mener un questionnement autonome en lecture L’intention de cet atelier est de proposer à tout enseignant qui souhaite accompagner un apprenti lecteur de créer simplement des enrichissements de livres papier afin d’améliorer les stratégies de lecture et à d’enrichir l’imaginaire. Les participants seront invités à découvrir des moyens de produire, sans compétence technique particulière, des albums enrichis au moyen de QRCodes (ces codes permettent lorsqu’on les scanne à l’aide d’un Smartphone ou d’une tablette d’accéder de manière instantanée à des contenus numériques associés). Nous échangerons ensuite sur les bases théoriques qui sous-tendent les enrichissements proposés : ceux-ci sont en partie inspirés du travail de Maryse Brumont* sur les diverses stratégies pour conduire les élèves à devenir des lecteurs autonomes. Il s’agira par exemple d’utiliser le questionnement sur les inférences, mais d’autres perspectives pourront être envisagées comme les possibilités de lectures en constellation par exemple. lu : 4782 fois
