Five Reasons I Love Using QR Codes in My Classroom There are so many tools that educators can use to get students interested and engaged in their work. Like most teachers today, I integrate technology into my instruction everyday. I'm lucky to work in a school with one-to-one technology and use iPads with my students throughout every school day. That makes it easy to use QR codes in my classroom -- and there are many reasons I love using QR codes! What is a QR Code?

(they do indicate this on the sign up page, but it was below the fold so to speak, and I did not see it while i was reading their materials–when i saw a for $fee$ “pro” package, i just assumed that was for someone like me, who was willing to pay a fee to host videos on the web–a wrong assumption in this case).

Got to Teach Teaching Resources Most of my experience has been teaching 4th and 5th grades in a self-contained classroom. I have a Masters of Science in Reading, and in addition to being a Reading Specialist, I have also taught at the community college level. In September of 2016, I left the classroom in order to become a full-time curriculum writer. I love presenting my students with open-ended learning experiences. Critical thinking and problem solving are always in the forefront of my mind when planning and/or creating lessons for my class. I also like to incorporate as many cooperative learning opportunities as possible.
