They are beginning to appear everywhere. You may have seen them on magazine ads, cereal boxes or even movie posters. QR stands for “quick response” and they’re used in marketing, entertainment, and commercial tracking.
Anyone with a smart phone can download a FREE QR code reader (I like i-nigma) and scan the code. QR codes typically contain web addresses, emails, or other contact information. (And by the way, Angie, you can scan QR codes in print or on the screen!) Try it and find out where this code takes you.
How can you use QR codes in your classroom?
· Create QR codes to link to book trailers and paste the QR codes inside the book jacket. Students can use their phones to browse for a good book.
· Generate QR Codes that link to video tutorials for Math problems, Science labs, etc.
