Media specialists have been using bar code readers for years. Now, it seems that everyone is using QR (quick read) codes and cell phones to read them. Wouldn't it be cool if you could have kids read a book and create a QR code with their opinion that could be attached to the cover. Making your own QR (quick read) code is easy Go to http://goqr.me/ or http://qrcode.kaywa.com/ and link it to a site, text, or your contact information. You can post them on a book mark and leave it in the book or attach it to the inside cover. Download a reader like Quickmark (for android) or Redlaser (for iphone) and the kids will be able to read codes for sites, secret messages, reviews, etc.
