Utilize QR Codes within Research Posters

Utilize QR Codes within Research Posters

What exactly is a QR Code, and what is its purpose? A QR (Quick Response) code is a sophisticated, two-dimensional bar code that can be scanned using a smartphone, tablet, or webcam. After reading the high-speed, two-dimensional QR code, it links to a Web address that contains related information.

Offer this option to students as they conduct research projects. Instead of traditional report writing, consider having students follow the normal research process and then create mini-posters on their topics. Each mini-poster can include a QR code to link readers to already existing websites, videos, etc. for more information. (This would make a great interactive hallway bulletin board.)

To use QR codes, simply identify the websites to be linked and use QR Stuff to generate a unique QR code. You can print the code out on paper or download it as a graphic, allowing students to add the code to their research mini-posters.
