Many of you wondered, how to create QR codes. Today, I am going to share how I create them. This post shares how I use them in my classroom.
To follow along this tutorial, you will need a mobile device such as a smartphone or iPad with a QR app installed to scan the QR codes within the tutorial to "see" the difference. If you are interested in creating QR codes, I use this website.
As you can see in Box 1, Data Type, QR codes can be embedded from many sources.

Since, I am creating these for Word Work, I wanted to create a "fancier" image. To do so, I created my document in Power Point. Then, saved the file as a .jpg file which I uploaded it to Google docs. I add the website address in Box 2, Content, and selected the URL shortener to create a "less busy" QR code.
Did you "see" the difference?
I am going to use this next week during our Word Study. I am sure the kids will love it. You can grab a copy for free. Yes, free! I hope that you'll love it.

I hope this tutorial inspires you to give QR Codes a try. If you do, let me know. I think my next QR post will be on Tips and Tricks. Anyone interested?
