QR Codes in Teaching and Learning with Shamblesguru

Recording:  (57min)


You've probably seen QR Codes already, maybe in the supermarket, but have not known what they are or how they might be relevant to you .... but trust me, you are going to find these extremely useful as a learning resource ... and the students are going to find them fun and motivational. 

QR Codes are a bridge between the real world and the online world. In this session we will look at what QR Codes are ... how to make them and how to read them ... and how they might be used by teachers and students both in the classroom and outside.

If you own a 'smart phone' then please have it with you for this session, first install any free QR Reader App (use Google to find one) This session is in Second Life, using voice, I'll also be asking you to use a web-browser at the same time. (could be on a different machine … if you have 2)

As an ageing nerd, I find QR codes a lot of fun, but I also have my doubts about using this technology for technology's sake. I added a QR code to my conference badge at the EUROCALL 2011 conference this year. Most people did not know what it was and only two people used their smartphones to read it - a link to my personal website. I have expressed my view on QR codes here in the ICT4LT blog:

QR codes in education: Why all the fuss?

I created an EFL scavenger hunt with QR Codes and used it this past week. My students loved it. I had a mixture of reading comprehension, focus on grammar, TOEFL test items, and images for comment. I posted the QR-Codes all around the university. Each card had focus questions, a QR code, and a location clue to find the next QR code. Great fun!
