Accessing Multimedia Using QR Codes
Students of all ages are required to read text for a variety of purposes. With a large emphasis placed on teaching skills that help children tackle nonfiction, it's important to think about the different ways that students are gathering facts and details as they take in information. Teachers need to think beyond traditional text and make sure that their students have the necessary skills for processing, evaluating, and comprehending multimedia. Not a Trend, But a Tool Locating and sharing high quality multimedia content can be difficult. Even when you've found the perfect text to share with students, the next step can be logistically challenging. Many tech-enthusiastic educators have written off QR codes as a passing trend that can be replaced with augmented reality triggers. For teachers just getting started with technology, or those looking for flexibility in a BYOD (bring your own device) environment, QR codes still have an important place in a tech-friendly classroom.
