- Main Ideas
- QR Codes are very easy to generate or “make” - all you need is an QR app and a link to what you want attached to it - it can be an image, a message, something online.
- Ways to use at school
- School Garden - have students do their Google research. Using Google Lens and it image recognition technology to identify any unlabeled plants. Use gardening markers to put QR Codes on. Link to names of plants, recipes, or nutritional benefits.
- Classroom Management - students can scan a QR Code that is linked to a Google Form. They will record their “Missed Learning Times” = bathroom, water, nurse, office, etc.
- Crafts and Holiday Gifts - A poem can be saved as a Google doc, and then linked to a QR Code. The QR Code can be put on a construction paper card. Receiver must scan to get their special message.
- For special events like a Holiday Production or Science Fair science, the experience can be shared with a Google Site and a QR Code link. This will give parents, teachers, and students the ability to see behind the scenes and video or pictures of the actual event.
- QR Codes with Google Forms for Quizzes; can be used with grade level for pre and post testing a concept. Kids get excited to take the quiz… just because they get to scan the QR code.
- Google Slides for book reports! Put a QR Code with an image of the book. Place it in the library. Students can recommend or not! their book to other students. This is also a good way for their parents to view them.
