Sharing Kindergarten: QR Codes in the Classroom Little learners are AMAZING at using technology to LEARN. Sometimes WE as teachers are the ones who limit them. One of my passions is using technology in the classroom to LEARN... not to just use technology. QR stands for Quick Response. They are an easy way to get anyone to an EXACT place you want them to go. Meaning, you can control content while your students can control their learning. This just might be a perfect combination to allow teachers, who want to control learning, to let go and let their students grasp more responsibility for their learning. If you have ever read my blog, you already know I love to use technology in different ways. One of the ways I love to use technology is with a series of activities called "QR Scan & Learn." The best thing about these activities is... You only need a smart device with wifi and a camera function... {iPhones, iPads, iPods, Android, ect...} whatever device that can use a QR Reader and has internet can use these!

YAKiT - Make any photo talk Getting Started with Prezi | Prezi Support QR Codes and Bottle Cap Fun! Technology is awesome because not only does it keeps students engaged, it's also usually pretty environment-friendly! So, I've decided to combine two fun items I've been incorporating in my classroom - QR codes and labeling bottle caps - to help students practice ordering fractions, multi-digit multiplication, and long division - just a few skills we're going over in fourth grade right now. Let's start with ordering fractions: I made 8 bottle cap groups with six fractions in each group using Avery lables (1" circles 5410). And then, lo and behold, did you know you can make QR codes in Avery? On the left-hand tool bar, there is a button for making bar codes and QR codes. Am I making sense? Now on to multi-digit multiplication and long division: I made 6 problems each, using the same Avery labels. Then, through the QR code button on the Avery website, I made QR codes with the answers to put on the inside of the caps. Got a scan app on you right now? Happy QR coding!
