QR Code Scavenger Hunt

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…

  1. 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.
  2. 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).
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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!



About Scott

My name is Scott. After 18.5 years as a high school math teacher in public education I have made the move to become a full time PhD student. This decisions was difficult, but has been one of the most rewarding things that I have ever done. Teaching in high school was an incredible experience for me, so leaving an environment that I loved for the unknown was a challenge. As I high school teacher, I taught almost every math course that could be offered. I was able to earn National Board Certification in Young Adult Math. I was honored as my building Teacher of the Year, no mean feat at Edmond Memorial High School!! My career changed as I became fascinated with educational technology and all of the things that it can do for teachers. I flipped my class. I used iPads and blogging (in high school math!!). I started using gamification and mastery learning. I changed my practice. I chose to go back to school to learn as much as I could. To bring that knowledge from academia and research to the teacher on the front line. I have had the opportunity to present at several conferences and share what I have learned with others. Its through these connections that we can be the best teachers we can for our students. They deserve it and we sell ourselves short when we don't give it. I love talking with teachers about change. About incorporating educational technology. About the power that they have to change lives. My blog space is me, it shares my passions and frustrations, my joys and my learnings. If you are interested in what I am studying, please visit my graduate school pages. If you are interested in the flipped classroom, I have some links to get your started. I would love to meet you! Do not hesitate to reach out! I would enjoy the opportunity to work with your staff or trade ideas with your teachers - let me know! Have a great day! #BeBrilliant
