QR codes

Monday, July 9, 2012
I have been playing for the last hour or so, teaching myself how to use QR codes in the classroom.

I created a code to put on the wall outside my classroom that has all my contact information on it.

Then I created one just for YOU to read.  You will have to have an app to be able to read it. (you can get them for free by the way)

I also created this one with a link to an animated retelling of "Wide Mouthed Frog"  which happens to be one of my all time favorite children's books.  {I think it appeals to my sick sense of humor.}  
 (I must admit that the video gets a little irrating after a bit, but first graders would like it.)

I must thank Heidi at Swamp Frog First Graders for getting me excited about this idea!  She has created codes for her students to scan to get math problems. She also has a great tutorial to help get you started.

 I think it would be so cool to use these to attach to books so students could hear the book being read.  They could use ipods in the classroom to scan the code and listen to the book.  I'm sure there are countless ways you could use these in the classroom. 

 If you already use these, please share your ideas!
