QR Codes In The Classroom

We are all aware of the concerns about the amount of screen time kids receive. We also know the importance of technology in the classroom. Over the last couple of years, we have worked to reduce screen time in our classroom while still using technology. We do that by using QR codes!

What Are QR Codes?

A QR code is basically a link to a document/video/picture/website. Instead of “clicking” the link, you scan the QR code with a QR reader. And with the newest iPhone update, you can simply use your camera! In fact, you’ve probably seen QR codes everywhere!

They look like this: (Scan this qr code and you will go to our online store!)

How Do You Use QR Codes In The Classroom?

In our classroom, QR codes are used in math and literacy centers. Technology is a choice on our center wheel. When students go to technology, they choose a QR code activity and use an iPad to complete the activity. No iPad? No worries. A QR code will work on any device with internet access.

Students scan the code and an image or word appears. It’s like magic. Which is why kids love them. Teachers love them because they’re also easily differentiated. Our QR code creations come up with differentiated recording sheets so you can use these technology centers to easily target all students! And you can use these magical teaching tools to work on any skill!
