Hi, everyone! It's Farrah, from ThinkShareTeach, here to share a quick and easy way to get started with QR codes in your classroom. QR Codes can be used for so many things, but I decided to start small in my classroom, and create a self-checking center game for reviewing renaming fractions.
|Use your device to try out one of the codes!|
To make the code:
QR Stuff is a free, simple site to use for making codes. Since I started small, I decided to use my QR codes to give a text answer. On the site, simply choose the button beside 'plain text' and type the text that you want to appear in the content box. The QR code is generated automatically. You can change the color if you'd like or leave it black and white. Download it and insert it as an image.
To scan the code:
i-nigma is my favorite QR code scanner. It's free, and super fast. You can download it on your Apple device here, or from the Google Play store here. This is a screen shot of me using it just now. Sorry its a little tilted. I literally had to snap it in less than a second because it read the code so quickly!
And that is it! I can't wait to try this game out on the kiddos in January. It will be my first use of QR codes in my fourth grade class. Hopefully, this has given you some ideas for getting started with QR codes as well. I'd love to hear your ideas for getting started, or how you're already using QR codes.
