QR Codes

Quick Response are so fun to integrate in classroom. Quick Reponse codes are bar codes with information. QR Codes can include contact information, websites, text, SMS, pictures and so much more. I just started using QR codes in my Math classroom and the students really enjoy it. I have included a few ideas on how to integerate them into your classroom, along with other websites that gives ideas as well.

1. Worksheets ~ Create a 3 - In - A Row worksheets for students to play with another student.
2. Scavenger Hunts ~ Post codes around the school have student solve problems and find the correct answers.
3. Contact Information for Parents and Students ~ Post in classroom for students and parents to obtain phone number, email address, class website, etc.
4. Notes ~ Such an easy way to post notes and great for students to always have access to them at all times.
5. Assignments ~ Post Homework assignments in codes for students to scan before leaving class.
6. Hints/Tutorials to assist on problems ~ Use when students are solving problems. They can scan the code when they are having trouble or need help.

This is my favorite because it gives a lot of ideas: Education QR Codes Wiki

To create codes you can use: QR Stuff

Students love to use their cell phones to solve math problems.

You can create several problems on one worksheet, cut them and play Pass It. Each student/group solves a problem and them pass it to the next student/group.

 The Scavenger Hunt is always fun for students.

For a Math Project, I included directions, website, and resources in one link!

Quick Response Codes are so easy to create. I have found that is the easiest site to use to create codes...3 steps and you are done. Download your code and insert it into any document or presentation. The best thing is that it is free to create.

Students must have a smart phone to access codes. There are free QR scanners and/or Bar Code scanners for them to download to their phones. In my class, my students have Cell Buddies (groups of 2-3 students who share cell phones).

Try it...your kids will love it!
