Last year at the beginning of the year, I had my students do a QR code math review. It was great fun and it allowed the students to explore the school! You can do this to – just figure out what the key areas of your building are and have the students make a visit! Have new faculty? Have them do a scavenger hunt and tweet a selfie!
Here is what you do…
- In Google Docs or in a Microsoft word, create your questions. One question per page. Google Docs are best because they are already on the internet (more freedom). I taught math, so my questions were math. You teach______________so your questions will be about ________________. Post these questions at the location the students are directed to.
- Pick out the locations in your building that you want to use, these will be where your QR code will direct people to go. A cloud based document will work best for this (the QR code will take them there).
- Use a QR code creator for the QR image to that will be scanned. Use a link to your web-based location (google docs are great). Once you have a QR code, paste the image below each of your questions. The QR code should link to a location.
- Have the students work in small groups (four worked best for me). Each location has a specific QR code. Have each group scan a code to know where to start.
- Once students complete their question, they scan the QR code for the next location/question. If you are really enterprising, you can create multiple choice QR codes and have the wrong answers take students to the principals office.
Questions??? Please ask! If something is unclear, let me know!
Have a great year!
