The following list from listly user Marianna Talei offers a huge variety of QR resources, from QR code generators to attaching images and hosting QR code treasure hunts."
"One of my favorite reference charts is taped to my classroom’s iPad cart, and the other is prominently displayed in the front of the room. My students email their classwork throughout the school year and this chart helps them remember what to do before hitting send:"
