QR Codes

If you don't know what they are by now... well, you are just like me I guess.  I have seen them around at stores and even my dr office.  I had NO idea what in the world they were for.  Then I found out they could be used in the classroom along with ipads or smart phones.  SO VERY COOL!!!

The other day we had a small workshop all about QR Codes at school.  So on Monday, I came into school right away and created some QR Codes to go along with out high frequency words of the week.  I placed them around the room and the kids had to hunt for them with the ipads.  There were nine altogether and the they had to find all nine words to put them alphabetical order.

Cool, right??  I am in the middle of creating math story problems on QR Codes and then the kiddos will have to solve the math problems they find.  I am way excited about this.  You can also encode youtube videos into the QR Codes.

Too bad it's the end of the school year.  There is so much I want to do with this group now.  But alas, I will have to save the fun for next school year now... once I teach the Kinder babies how to use them.

I created my very own QR Code... so grab your smart phone/ipad/whatever with a scanner and get the Scan app.  Then scan my code and click FOLLOW. *big smiles*

I used QRPhoria.com to make my code.
