We have talked about QR codes before on this blog, here and here. In a recent Lunch and Learn, teachers were trained by our Technology Integration Mentors, Ms. Schuliaz, Ms. Stack (that's me!), and Ms. Tschan on BYOD and QR codes in the classroom. Math teacher, Ms. O'Hagan, attended this workshop and created two different QR codes for her algebra and calculus classes. Now hanging in her classroom are QR codes that when scanned by a QR code reader (a free app from your app store) on a smart phone will take students directly to the homework page of her website through an Internet browser. What a great idea!
Ms. O'Hagan's homework QR codes.
Our students now see QR codes all over the high school; on flyers in the cafeteria which take users to the voting form for Homecoming Queen and King to Mr. Grozzkreuz and Mr. Stein's Armenian Genocide Museum in the main foyer which allows users to hear a voice of the Genocide. These QR codes are teacher and student-generated.
Just like our Website and Twitter, this is a place to showcase information about upcoming events, resources, authors, research, and the Internet. As always, I look forward to seeing you in the library and sharing your ideas.
