QR Codes - The Hidden 350
Did you know that a QR (Quick Response) code contains up to 350 times more information that a traditional bar code? What can we use QR codes for?
The display could be just about anything depending on what you might teach.
Example: a display of the human skeleton and QR codes that label key parts. Each code will then take a student to a video/page to further explain what they are looking at. This could also be a map and the codes link to information about certain battles or capitals.
Sound like a lot of extra work? It could also link to the resources you are already using in class. Links to videos and the moodle are a simple way to start.
Promote Books and Meet the Author
The codes could be posted anywhere within a building or in a book. The QR would link to pages created by the students or the author.
Link to solutions or videos that describe the process. A simple way to do this is by using what is on youtube or Khan Academy. (That youtube video is about fractions.)
Some have created paper guides that accompany the students while on the field trip. The main purpose is to help facilitate student learning while exploring their new environment. An engaging idea would be to develop a simple QR code scavenger hunt.
Anything Made of Paper
Anything that is paper based could contain a QR code linking to additional resources that may not be accessible on the paper.
Outside the Classroom
These codes would give quick access to projects created by the kids. It could also link to a video by the students welcoming the parents to the classroom.
The code is linked to a survey (google form) to get immediate feedback from an event in your classroom. This can be used with students or parents.
