How can QR codes be used effectively in class?

 

As mobile learning and technology is more readily integrated within classroom settings, QR codes can be used as an interesting method to capture a student’s attention and make lesson material more interactive.

 

Quick response codes, also known as ‘QR’ codes, are simple, scannable images that are a form of barcode. By scanning a QR code image through a mobile device, information can be accessed including text, links, bookmarks and email addresses.

 

In the classroom, QR codes can be used in a variety of ways — from conducting treasure hunts to creating modern CVs. Below is a number of articles, tutorials and lesson plans designed to help educators.

One of the most effective ways the QR code could be used is in mail order catalogs. In the catalog it would have information on each of the products, pictures and then a QR code with a call to action to scan it. When scanned, the code would pull up a promotional video that explains the product further and shows examples of the product being used. When the video finishes, it will prompt the user to directly add the item to their shopping cart. Additionally, because the catalog could have the QR code link to a URL of their choice, they can track all scans and conversions to measure effectiveness and make necessary changes.
Other ways to use QR Codes:
• to assign homework assignments
• to Link to Important Forms
• to Give Feedback
• for Polls, Surveys, etc
In adult education, QR Codes may be used for examinations, certification and many other applications.
Because of their unusual design, the QR codes would certainly draw the viewers eye, the problem is, these codes are meant to be viewed (primarily but not exclusively) on a mobile phone. If they have a PDF to fill out, it would be much easier to download it to a computer than a mobile phone.
