QR Codes in the Classroom

No more typing loooooong addresses!

Why would I want to use QR Codes?

So much time is spent having kids type in long addresses on their iPads. If you create a QR code, you can put it on a flip chart and the students can quickly scan it and go where you want them to be immediately. There are many different types of QR uses, but this would be the basic type.

First, the kids need a QR Code reader on their iPads. Have them go to the App Store and get i-nigma. By using a QR Scanner, students can scan the QR code and it will take them straight to that website! Super fast and super easy!

Design an activity that involves students going to a website.

You will need to create a QR code online for your students to scan with the i-nigma app.

Find the website you want them to go to and follow these steps!

- Go to http://www.qrstuff.com or https://www.the-qrcode-generator.com/ .

- Make sure "Website URL" is selected in #1.

- Type or paste the URL into the box in #2.

- Wait for the QR to change in the preview box on right.

- Open the i-nigma app on your iPad and scan the code on your computer screen.

- Tap View Online.

- Make sure it goes to the right website! [If it doesn't, redo it!]

- On your computer, click Download QR code under the QR.

- Go into your downloads folder and it'll be named qrcode.######. Change the name to the website name so you don't forget that it goes too!

- Print the QR code and place it in your center. Or make a flip chart and put it on there.

Students will open the i-nigma app and scan the code to go to the website.
