With the advance of mobile technologies, QR Code technologies have become acquired immense educational potential. There is now an increasing number of free QR code generators and scanners that can be used for various educational purposes. 

The visual below sums up 10 interesting examples of how you can use QR Codes with your students. I have also included some interesting resources and video tutorials to help you better understand the whole concept of QR Codes in education. Check them out and share with your colleagues. 

10 Interesting Ways to Use QR Codes in Class

1- Create interactive and engaging content

You can enrich the content you teach in class by adding QR Codes that link to further readings and resources around related topics. For instance, you can link to a PDF, a document, a video tutorial, a website, an audio file..etc

2- Share resources

Students can use QR Codes to share educational resources with each other (e.g class notes, web content, how-to videos etc)

3- Help with homework

Teachers can provide detailed instructions and how-to tips in the form of a QR Code which students can scan at home and use to solve the homework

4- Use in classroom activities

Instead of handing out dozens of handouts with instructions on how to work on a certain activity, you can generate  QR Codes with all the required information and share them with your class.
 (the class blog, website, or pin them on the classroom wall).

5- Communicate with parents

Share with parents QR Codes with information about class/school events and activities, students learning...etc.

6- Scavenger Hunts

Add some interactivity to Scavenger Hunts you use in class. It will enhance students motor activity and get them engaged.

7- Use with books and reading materials

You can integrate QR Codes in textbooks and  books you have in your class library. Upon scanning these codes students will be able to access more information and resources on the related book.

8- Provide easy access to online content

Sharing long URLs with students is not always the best option and most often some students will miscopy the website address and end up with a broken URL. Create  QR Codes with URLs you want  students to check out and share them with students.

9- Gather students feedback
You can create polls, surveys and forms using tools like Google Forms and share them with students as QR Codes that students can easily scan and access.

10- Research project
Get students to create QR Codes linking to the resources and web content they drew on in their research.
