Clone Yourself with QR Codes

Clone Yourself with QR Codes | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it
As a teacher wouldn’t it be handy to be in more than one place at a time?
I’d like to give you some ways of recording yourself and getting that audio
or video online. Once online, it’s a matter of copying and pasting to
generate a QR code. A QR code is a quick way to get students to online
content. Easily providing recordings to your students means you can reteach
concepts, differentiate instruction, give directions at centers,
communicate with parents, and be heard and/or seen anytime and any place. 
Ken Morrison's insight:
We all know about QR codes, but this teacher remixes everything!
