QR Codes & Education

While we’re usually chasing down the latest successful QR code campaign or QR code scanning app, it’s important to realize other great things that QR codes can do, such as enhancing education.

People are starting to place QR codes in books for additional information, animations and sound. They have been integrated into versions of the periodic table of elements in order to provide information about them that couldn’t be incorporated into the chart. They are even being used in classroom handouts so students can easily link their printed materials to the web.

In fact, QR codes are starting to be used in classrooms throughout the country. If you’re an educator, let us know what your thoughts on using QR codes in the classroom are.
