Thanks for this, an excellent list that mirrors my own experience and ideas for QR Codes and how they can be used in and around classrooms. I have just recently released this ebook on QR Codes in Education, which your readership may find interesting:

This sounds like a fantastic idea. It's given me ideas about book reviews within my literature classes, thanks!

Sounds like a great idea. Can you coordinate with other classes and/or the librarian? It would be really great for students to have a place to share reviews and build a network of readers.

Also, it sounds like a great opportunity for the librarian to build a community of readers. If the kids review the book while addressing author style it would make for a more authentic experience.

Love the idea!

I like all three of your ideas for Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced. I haven't used QR codes in my classroom yet, but plan to do so soon. I teach 4th grade. I've been looking at the new Bloom's Digital Taxonomy (http://www.techlearning.com/article/44988) and I'm trying to see how I can combine what I'm already required to do in the classroom with incorporating the tech skills necessary for developing the higher order thinking skills.

I plan on combining our fantasy reading unit's objectives of summarizing and noticing author's writing style with the QR codes. Each student will do a book talk on a self selected text on iMovie. After some editing it will be posted to the class blog. They will then make a QR code and place it on the back of the book in the library.
Students that are in the libray hunting for a new read can ask for an itouch or ipad as the browse. If they come across a book with a QR code they can watch the book talk.
When they complete the book the student can return to the class blog and leave a comment on their view of the book.
I feel this activity will encompass all six elements in the revised taxonomy.
Any comments or pointers? All are welcomed.

Hi everyone,

I created qrvoice.net a while ago and got several messages from educators benefiting from this free service: enter a message and a qrcode is generated, once scanned it'll play the message with a synthesized voice.

Have fun!
