What a powerful learning experince! The QR code may link to a book review or a retell of a story, it may be a written or oral learning example. Anything that can has been creted or stored online (eg has a URL, web address, can be used to generate a QR code). Love the idea of recreating the QR code with lego, great Maths learning oppotunity and something that will 'stick' with the learner, fun and fascinating at the same time.
