I've just read this article and am interested in exploring the use of QR codes in my classes. How do you go about creating the codes and adding content to what you've added?

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!
