Great Idea to use Corak.it:



  • Have students create a 30 second recording describing their art work, project, or book review. Use the URL that is created to make it into a QR Code. Place the code near the artwork or in the book. Have Viewers use their Phone or tablet to scan the QR code and hear the recording of the child describing their art or reviewing the book... Talk an an ahaa moment... TOOO COOL.

Use a Google Spreadsheet to generate QR codes QUICKLY!
