Use QR Codes for Book Reviews
March 12, 2013
QR (Quick Response) codes are two-dimensional bar codes that can be scanned using a smartphone, tablet, or webcam. After reading the code, it links to a Web address that contains related information stored there, such as an audio or video file.
After-reading book reviews can experience an extreme overhaul with the integration of an audio or video recording. Upload the audio/video to a webpage and then create a QR code for that page. Print and place the QR code in the back inside cover of the book for future readers to scan when deciding whether they want to read the book.
Consider taking advantage of this easy-to-use technology in planning your classroom instruction. After identifying/adding the content you want to link to on a particular website, use QR Stuff to generate a unique QR code.
