How to Make a QR Code

Tech Tips, Technology, Virtual Resources

Written by: Angie Olson

What are QR codes?
QR codes are similar to bar codes except QR codes can have data embedded in them.  When read using QR code software, the code can open a website, video, text, or even download a file.

How do I scan them?
Most Smart and Android-based devices have the ability to read QR codes.  There are many QR code reader apps that can be installed for free on these devices.  If you don't have access to these kinds of devices, you can also use a desktop or laptop computer with a webcam.  Simply open the app and hover your device over the QR code so it can scan it.  That's it!  Super easy, right?

Tips & Tricks
->Laminate your QR code task cards to be used every year.
->Make sure your printer has ample ink so that the codes are printed accurately.
->Try a different QR code reader app if the one you are using isn't working- sometimes that makes a difference!
->Provide a well-lit environment for you students to work in.
