My Attempt at QR Codes

Posted by on Jul 11, 2014 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

We had a training session at our school well over a year ago, before I was at all comfortable with my iPad, on QR codes. I had a student teacher at the time and she knew all about them. She basically took over my iPad and did the activity for me. I saved the handout because I was a little interested and thought maybe I would try them out someday.

A couple of weeks ago I was cleaning off my desk at home, so that it could be functional, and I found the handout. I put it in my folder with lesson ideas I hope to get to someday. This morning I was working to avoid working on the projects I had assigned myself for today, so I started going through the folder. I decided today was the day to tackle QR codes.

I opened the handout feeling my usual feelings of inadequacy when confronting technology and I read the following instruction, “Use a QR Code Generator many of which are free.” I googled QR COde Generator. Up pops one. It is easy. I just type what I want and press save as a PNG. I copy it, paste it, and I have one done. It was so amazingly easy!

So I have created an Analogies for Back to School set of task cards. It is currently free at TpT until I have 50 downloads, then it will be half price for the next 24 hours. Here is a sample.

Analogies for Back to SchoolAnalogies are a great vocabulary building strategy. I made a couple pages to help students understand how to use them and how to read them.



Please check them out and hurry while they are free!
