App Combo: Folidfy and QR Codes - Class Tech TIps | idevices for special needs | Scoop.it

"This year at ISTE in Atlanta, I shared with teachers one easy way to add QR codes to three-dimensional shapes.  

 

The app Foldify lets users create a template for a variety of three-dimensional shapes.  Instead of drawing a picture or adding family photos, I used a QR code generator on my iPad, saved the pictures to the Camera Roll, and placed them on my Folidify creation.  They are easy to assemble after your print them out and great for having students roll a dice for a mystery writing prompt or math problem."
