  • Amazing slides Jennifer. This is quite an exhaustive list of how QR Codes are used in Teaching. I would like to add one more here. Apart from the traditional use of QR Codes for sending kids to some website, concealing answers, linking to surveys and other that you mentioned. QR Codes are now being innovatively used to create self correcting activities. Take a look at it here: https://goo.gl/9Qv8jJ. At the end of the activity, if the QR Code is scannable, that means kid got the answers correct. Reduces the work for teachers.
