1. Simplify Whole Group Web Navigation Teachers of young students know how difficult it can be for young students to type in a URL displayed on a screen. There are always a few students who will misspell them and end up in the wrong place.

There are various bookmarklets available that could make projecting a large QR code easy to do on the fly.
2. Easy access to review/enrichment resource links Attach a QR code on assignments or in textbooks so students (and parents!) can find more information about the topic whether it’s a link to a video on the Khan Academy website, a download URL for a helpful app, or a related web article.

Interested in making your own QR codes? There are a numbers of sites out there that will generate QR codes with a variety of data types. I like QRstuff.com but a quick google search will provide you with many other options.
