In just the last few weeks I’ve answered a half dozen or so emails from readers who had questions about how to make QR codes for a variety of things. Using QR codes to add a digital element to physical bulletin boards or other physical displays has been the unifying theme of those emails.
Another great use of QR codes is simply getting all of your students on the same page quickly by having them scan a QR code with their iPads, tablets, phones, or webcam (that option won’t work on all computers). QR Droid, my go-to tool for making QR codes, makes it possible to create a QR code for just about anything that is accessible online. With QR Droid you can create QR codes for webpages, maps, files (audio and video), calendar events, and contact information.
In the following videos I demonstrate how to use QR Droid to make QR codes for a variety of purposes. Don’t let the name fool you, you don’t have to be an Android user to make or read QR codes created with QR Droid.
