How to Make a QR Code: A Quick Video Tutorial

Here is a quick video tutorial on how to make a QR code! It's really easy! And they are so much fun to use in the classroom! You can read about some of the ways I've used them in my classroom {HERE}. You can easily get students to content on the web, ask questions, share pictures, or create an answer key! There are so many ways to use them, and in my experiences they are always motivating for students!  

Tabitha also has some AMAZING QR code ideas {HERE}!

Update! Since the release of Apple's iOS 11, you DO NOT need a QR code scanner or separate app to access the information embedded within a QR code. Yay! Click the pic below to see a quick post on Instagram on how easy it is to scan a QR code from an Apple device! This is a game changer, especially for classrooms with little learners because it's SO easy! 


Remember, if you are using these in the classroom, your students will need a device (like an iPod or iPad) with a scanning app to scan the QR codes.

These are my favorite scanning apps (and they're FREE!)



There are tons of other scanning apps out there- these are just my faves. :)

If you don't have an 'iThing' :), you can read Kristin's post:
