QR Codes in the Classroom

Hi friends!
Well, the first week of school is now over.  The kids were ready to go, and I was excited to bring some new ideas into the classroom.  So, of course, I wanted to share those ideas with you.  The first is QR codes.
QR codes are the new bar codes that can be read through free readers on smart phones and tablet devices.  You can also read them on your laptop.   You will start to notice these square codes on all sorts of products that you buy--like shampoo, coffee, breakfast cereal and much more.  QR Codes are easy to create--and even more fun to read.  It feels like a high tech treasure hunt.

Here are my suggestions for apps to use QR Codes
QR Code Readers For your iPhone/iPad: AT&T Reader or Red Laser
QR Code Reader/Generator For your laptop: Esponce Reader and Generator
Here is a video that shows QR codes in the classroom.

 Coming up on the next post...I will be attaching some QR code lessons I plan to use in my classroom.  Have a wonderful week!
