QR Codes

QR Codes are EVERYWHERE! Why not use them in your classroom? During CLS's conference night I shared a QR Code Scavenger Hunt with parents and students. Each parent that visited left with two sheets of QR Codes. Each code took parents to an educational website they can use at home with their child. I promised parents that now that they have become familiar with QR Codes that they would see them everywhere. Students have been approaching me telling me about all of the QR Codes their families have seen and the benefits from scanning them. The students who attended have all downloaded QR Code readers on their devices and have been scanning away!

If you are at Bungay school you definitely know what a QR Code is. Check out these pictures below from Miss Iannucci's computer class.

Students saw how QR Codes are used today. Miss Iannucci had many hands on lessons where students explored the use of QR Codes. They even had to work in groups to find ways to use QR Codes at Bungay School.

 Students wrote book reviews on their library books and then created QR Codes that they taped to the books. I'm sure students will continue to write reviews on their own at home. Students can scan QR Codes on different library books to read reviews.

 Students in Miss Iannucci's class add to this chart to show where they have seen QR Codes. Students come in daily to add to the chart.

 Fifth grade students created an "All About Me QR Code Tree." They copied a posting from their student blog and then pasted it to a QR Code Generator. Students displayed their QR Codes on this tree in the hallway. The tree is a great way to have an interactive bulletin board to get everyone involved.

Students, teachers, parents, etc. can all learn about the class of 2020!

Miss Iannucci's class is now participating in a QR Code Scavenger Hunt. They have to scan different QR Codes to find the answers to different problems. The students really have been enjoying learning about QR Codes. Students find QR Codes to be engaging and they learned a way to showcase their digital projects to their school and community.

If you would like to use QR Codes in your classroom let me know and we can get started!
