Kathy's List of Ways to Use QR Codes in the Classroom

This is a list of ways to use QR codes in the classroom. Please add your own ideas.

7

Link to Surveys

Link to Surveys

Create a survey using Google Forms or Survey Monkey. Print codes for each survey. Students can take surveys when done with their work, chart which surveys were more popular, then create their own surveys and become great statisticians.

13

On School Letterhead

On School Letterhead

Add a QR code to school letterhead that points to the school website.

12

On Interactive Whiteboard

On Interactive Whiteboard

Use an interactive whiteboard and a video camera to record notes/math equations/brainstorming/etc. Host the video online and add a QR code to a
homework assignment so students can be retaught from home.

11

Answers to Questions

Answers to Questions

Hide the answers to a study guide behind a QR code. Copy the code onto the study guide so students can check their answers.

10

Point to Audio Recordings

Point to Audio Recordings

Have students write or read children's books and record them as they reading aloud. Upload the audio online and add a QR code linking to the audio. Or Qr code a link to the public domain recordings on the Gutenberg Project.

Teacher Bios

Teacher Bios

For open house/parent night, have each teachers in the building create a brief video introducing him/herself. Upload the videos and create QR codes that they can place by their doors. This way parents or later substitute teachers can get a feel for the quality teachers working in the building.

Book Reviews

Have students record book reviews and attach the QR code to the inside cover of the book.

Link to Content Videos

Link to Content Videos

Create QR codes that link to supplemental materials and add them to the
teacher edition and/or student editions of textbooks. This way
valuable resources don't get lost in endless network folders on a forgotten
flash drive and if on eh student edition teaches students to go beyond the text for information.

Field Trip Docents

During a field trip, give students a handout with multiple QR codes that provide supplemental information coinciding with different locations on the trip.
Students will have a guided tour even if they are not with the teacher.
