You may have heard about quick response codes, or QR codes. Or perhaps you've seen them around somewhere. But how do you actually create a QR code?
In the above 3-Minute Classroom Problem Solver video, Monica Burns explains step-by-step how to create your own QR code with QR Stuff. She chooses QR Stuff over many other tools because there's no registration necessary, it's simple to use, and this nifty little tool gives you many options for how to use your QR code when you're finished.
There are many ways you can use QR codes with your students in the classroom. If you're interested in more in-depth training on QR Codes, I recommend the following training videos:
Using QR Codes to Engage Students – In this session, discover how to create QR codes to use in your classroom. Simple, free QR generators allow you to create codes that can link to YouTube, text, SMS, email, URLs, and other objects. Learn how this technology can be used to engage students in a variety of learning activities and resources, such as scavenger hunts, checking answers, providing supplemental materials or tutorials, promoting school or class events, and just about any other classroom activity that you could relate to a QR code format.
Easy QR Code Projects to Differentiate and Energize Learning – QR code projects are a great way to modify and energize existing lessons so that you can differentiate the learning for each student. In this session, join educational technology trainer Monica Burns as she introduces you to QR codes and discusses how to create QR codes, how to access them using mobile devices, and how to manage a classroom of enthusiastic students engaged in active learning and projects with QR codes.
Transform Student Projects with Innovative Mobile Learning Activities – Join technology trainer Jenna Linskens as she shares a variety of mobile learning activities that allow students to work in cooperative groups or that encourage students to take the lead and model their peer coaching skills in a mobile learning center in your classroom. Jenna will explore activities such as building an App Learning Library, designing self-directed QR code activities, creating interactive eBooks, and more.
