A QR Code, or quick response code, is a barcode that can be scanned by any barcode reader, such as Scan. Creating a QR code is simple with a tool like QRstuff.com. You can link to websites, maps, phone numbers or just simple text with a QR code. Check out the list of ways to incorporate QR codes into your classroom – although the possibilities are endless with this technology integration. Also, check out the blog post that was up earlier this school year about QR Codes.
