A QR code (abbreviated from Quick Response code) is a type of matrix barcode (or two-dimensional code) first designed for the automotive industry. More recently, the system has become popular outside of the industry due to its fast readability and comparatively large storage capacity. The code consists of black modules arranged in a square pattern on a white background. The information encoded can be made up of any kind of data (e.g., binary, alphanumeric, or Kanji symbols).
Huh? What does that even mean? Well, basically it is the same kind of thing as a UPC symbol. The great thing is that we can make them ourselves and it doesn’t cost anything.
Here is our latest example for our school district:
Here are some links to using QR codes in the classroom as well!
