    14. 14. IPADS & TABLETSTOO
    15. 15. WHAT TO LOOK FOR:• Should be free• Should not have to create an account or provide personal information• Should keep a history of scans• Do you prefer to click “scan” or prefer it to scan automatically?• Will it put the link on the “clipboard” so that you can email it or forward it?• Will it put the date into your calendar? Put the contact information into your phone? Dial the person’s phone?

    17. 17. TIPS & BESTPRACTICES• Link to mobile friendly web sites• Use URL shortener• Aim for simple codes (avoid too much text)• Be aware of cost to students if linking to online resources (make students & others aware)• Consider those who don’t have a smart phone or other device – have a text option if needed• Size – the bigger the easier to read. Try to scan it yourself.• What is the purpose? Should save time or be useful in some way – not just a cool thing.
