  • The idea of linking spaces to information is not new, but QR codes combine simple creation with easy access to QR code readers. As a result, QR codes might kick-start widespread thinking and innovation around information connected to locations and objects. In museums, for example, QR codes might appear on plaques beside art displays, directing patrons to information about the artwork and the artist. QR codes posted on a building might offer visitors the history of the building itself or the corner on which it stands, and they might give the architect’s name or discuss the events happening in the city when the building was built. At botanical gardens, codes could direct users to information about the medicinal uses or food value of botanical specimens on display or offer data about the climate or soil requirements necessary for certain plants to thrive. Because QR codes are so inexpensive, they might even be printed as stickers and temporarily added to campus signs for a class activity.In museums, QR codesmight appear on plaques beside art displays,can direct patrons to information about the artwork and the artist.

  • StrengthsLink the physical world with the virtual by providing on-the-spot access to online resources for objects and locationsSupport experiential learning through mobile learningExpand pedagogical value in exercises that draw students into creating and contributing contentQR codes is browser-based, students can use the codes to read websites in their native languages or turn a local destination into a foreign-language lessonWeaknessesNot intuitiveNot everyone is aware of QR codes. As a result, not everyone who sees one will know to pull out a mobile phone and take a picture of the matrix. Not all mobile phones has a QR reader available, & the software must be downloaded and tested. QR code might direct Challenges remain to find appropriate and effective pedagogical uses of QR codes

So what actually took place?<br />Teachers identified “points-of-interest” & put up QR codes<br />QR codes are linked to online resources, class wiki, group blogs, quizzes & polls<br />At every “point-of-interest”, students record their observation & upload photos/audio recordings to the wiki/blogs or answer questions via quiz or poll<br />Upon completing their activity, they will retrieve their code for the next destination<br />The team that completes the activity first gets rewarded<br />Teams with quality contributions also gets rewarded<br />Prepared by CeL, NIE Singapore for iJC's NMiEF SL Conference<br />9<br />
