QR CODES (Quick Response Codes)
...are a type of barcode that may be scanned by portable devices such as cell phones. Attached to each QR code is data (like your email signature information, a link to a website, a document, a photo or video clip).
Try this one out. Use your cell phone to scan it.
There are a gazillion uses for these things. Here's an example. Students can research, write, photograph, and otherwise create "tours" of a local habitat (such as our environmental lab) and laminate codes linking to the information. These could be attached to trees. People touring the environmental lab could scan the codes with a smartphone and would be able to view the information students have written on the plants, animals, etc.
So, how do you create them????
One of the easiest ways is on this site.
Simply choose what you want the code to do after scanning. This one is pretty similar:
Google's url shortener site gives a qr code with each url you shorten:
Create t-shirts with the QRs:
r just make your business card with this site as well. Change colors and more.
This one is amazing!!!
This one works well for MAC -
As mobile learning and technology is more readily integrated within classroom settings, QR codes can be used as an interesting method to capture a student’s attention and make lesson material more interactive.
Quick response codes, also known as ‘QR’ codes, are simple, scannable images that are a form of barcode. By scanning a QR code image through a mobile device, information can be accessed including text, links, bookmarks and email addresses.
In the classroom, QR codes can be used in a variety of ways — from conducting treasure hunts to creating modern CVs. Below is a number of articles, tutorials and lesson plans designed to help educators.
