It was evident by the size of the audience in my session and the comments from teachers and administrators that there is still lots of interest in QR codes despite the fact that they have been around for years now. Why? Because although they are common place to me, that is not the case everywhere.
When I first came across QR codes I thought, "Black, white and boring!" Aesthetically there really is not much of a "wow" factor.
It was not until two years ago, when I learned how to link QR codes to audio that I began to get interested in them. Having worked with preschool aged students for many years, my mind raced with possibilities for incorporating them into stations.
Soon I discovered how to link QR codes to images and by then I was hooked on them.
There are two types of people reading this right now, those who have used QR codes with their students and those who have not. Regardless of where you land, I hope to share with you new and creative ways you can utilize QR codes with your students.
The following are FREE QR code activities that span a variety of subjects and grade levels.
