QR Codes in the Classroom

  1. 1. Meredith Martin mmartin@mantuaschools.com www.techforteachers.com @geekyteach
  2. 2. QR codes, or Quick Response Codes, are a matrix style barcode that records data. QR codes can be scanned by a device camera, and the data read by a QR reader program. QR codes can hold many types of data, including web links, text, images, and much more.
  3. 3. So how and where do you create QR codes? There are tons of free QR code creators online. Here are two of my favorites. QRstuff.com is a great site for making basic QR codes. You can even create them in custom colors. Visualead.com lets you get fancier with your QR codes and create them using images.
  4. 4. You will see a preview on the right hand side, as well as your download button. Once downloaded, your QR code is saved as an image that you can embed in a webpage, print in a document, etc. First, choose what type of QR code you want to create, then enter your content. Next, choose your color.
  5. 5. First, choose your QR code type and enter your content. Then click Generate QR Code. Next, you can upload an image from your computer, or choose one from their gallery. CLick the More button at the bottom of the gallery for more choices. Finally, generate your code, select the FREE option, and download it to your computer.
  6. 6. Audioboo. fm is a tool that lets you record your own voice. You can then make a QR code that links to your Audioboo file. In addition to recording on their website, they also offer apps for Apple and Android devices. QRvoice.net lets you type in short passages of text, and will read them back in an electronic voice.
  7. 7. Create interactive posters with codes linking to videos or websites that expand on important points. Attach a PDF file to a QR code! Upload your PDF to Google Drive, Dropbox, or other file storage website, then create a QR code with the link to the file.
  8. 8. Use QR codes inyour classroomlibrary toshare author websites,videos,ebooks, andmore. Add QR codesto studentartwork thatlinks to anaudio file ofthem telling astory aboutit. Create QRcodes thatlink to student digitalportfolios.
