Presentation Title: Sandpit QR Code Presentation

Presentation Description: In this presentation Allanah King describes how she has used QR codes with her class of Year Four children.

    You mention in the video, the ability to link some QR codes directly to the iPod’s Notes app (great when not connected to the Internet). Could you explain a little more about how you would set this up and possible uses for this scenario?

    Hi Allanah,

    Thanks for all the great tips on using QR codes in the classroom. I can appreciate how simple you made it to get started. I especially like the idea of adding QR codes to covers of books. What a cool idea. I can have my 5th grade students write reviews and link to other info on the web for their QR codes.

    I agree with Jose’s comment. I can have my 2nd graders write a review about the read aloud I am currently reading as we are creating a book trailer of the book and create a QR code of their review so that other students can possibly be encouraged to read this book.
