Qr codes in the classroom

  2. 2. What is a QR Code? QR Codes also known as Quick Response Codes A series of black and white squares embedded with information much like a UPC Bar Code. Any device with a camera and internet access can read a QR Code through an downloadable app.

Enter information into a QR Code Generator online or through an App. Most sites will let you choose to either download the QR Code as a JPEG or Embed into another program or website.
