Getting Started With QR Codes

Yes, I know....the other day I did a QR tutorial on making a QR code scavenger hunt and you are probably wondering why my second tutorial says, "Getting Started With QR Codes." Seems a little backwards huh? Well, that's just how my brain works.... Either way you'll learn something pretty neat. :)


 
I've been talking to a few teacher friends about how easy making QR codes are and how simple it could be to use them in the classroom. Technology doesn't have to be difficult or a thousand steps. Kids love these and they stay engaged when they are able to use iPads, iPods, and other electronic devices. I only have 1 iPad for school, but my school also has two iPad carts with 10 iPads on each one that we can check out. Even with one iPad, students can use QR codes...I promise!

Okay, so below you will find a video tutorial on creating easy "plain text" codes that can be used almost immediately. I'll also show you a few other types of codes you can create using www.qrstuff.com. Just try it and play around. That's the best way to learn. I'm NO expert!!! I just love to play and figure things out. I'm also pretty new at creating videos but I'm having fun with it. This video was created using Snagit. The last video I created was with Screencastomatic. Like I said, I'm not afraid to learn as I go. :)

Enjoy! I'd love to hear if you have already used QR codes or if you have other great ideas you can share.
