I’m always looking to integrate technology more into my lesson plans because our district is always pushing it, it’s the here and now, and well, it’s part of my goals. So, I had heard a lot about QR codes, but I really didn’t know a lot about them. After much investigation, I decided to try to implement them in my classroom during our Rocks and Minerals Science Unit.
Creating the QR Codes
Using the QR Codes
The app should read it on its own and immediately take you to the site. It’s usually pretty fast. Then, the students scroll through the information and collect what they need. Once done, they close out and move on to the next QR code, if applicable.
What I like about this, besides the integration of technology, is that this is a great way to keep students on a specific page of the internet. Or, you can even create your own page with your own material and not have to worry about them browsing all over!
