QR Codes in the Classroom
QR Codes or "Quick Response" codes are similar to barcodes and extremely easy to create. You can scan a QR code with apps such as i-nigma or a smartphone, iPod touch or iPad and it will link you to information. This could be text, video, audio, an image or a web site. There are tons of ways to use these in the classroom and around your school.
