Using QR codes in the classroom

Tom Barrett has another “Interesting Ways” collaborative presentation in the works.  This one is about using QR codes in the classroom.  Mine is tip is #5:  Using QR codes to promote school events.  View the presentation at: or help out and add your own idea.

1.  Create QR code ( that will go to a URL promoting a school event.

2.  Create a simple web page (ie, Google Sites) to promote that event.  I made one for my high school book club to promote good book recommendations for Teen Read Week.

3.  Print small notes with the title: What’s happening in school this week??? Scan this code with your mobile device to find out! and tape them in the bathroom stalls, mirrors, or areas where mobile devices are allowed at your school.

4.  Trust me, your tech savvy kids will know what to do — and it will peek the interest of other students too!

  1. I think there is a certain curiosity around QR codes, people just can’t help themselves and they just have to try and find out what is behind the code, most times it’s just a link to another advertisers website but you never know what you might come across I found some great coupons and discounts through QR codes that I found lying around the place.
    Great post and it is really nice to see codes being used in a different way
