Why use QR Codes in your classroom? Student engagement may only be one reason to use this technology.
What is a QR Code? A QR Code or Quick Response Code is 2D barcode that is made up of a large square with smaller squares inside. Originally developed by Toyota to help with parts inventory the data stored in these codes can contain many different types of information.
What do I need? The process of using a code is really simple. First you will need to download a QR Code reader. Both Android and iOS stores have plenty of options available. Search for “QR Code reader” in the app store. I’ve had the best luck with the i-nigma app with consistent positive results. Once you have downloaded a QR Code reader scan the code in the center of this section.
