A Quizzical Response To the New Bar Codes| The Committed Sardine.

For more QR Code information, click on the above link. �An interesting excerpt:�

“A subsidiary of Toyota developed QR codes in 1994 to track cars in the production line, and now the range of products with QR codes has gone so far beyond sedans that it includes the afterlife. A Seattle firm has started selling QR stickers for headstones, the better to learn more about the deceased.

 

In July, 14.4 million people scanned at least one QR code , according to comScore , a Seattle-based digital research firm. In August, the number hit 16.5 million.”

    Once you know what QR codes are, they pop up everywhere! I scanned one from a news report on TV, and it took me to a more in-depth article. I agree with Matt Woodrow – it would be fun (and educational) to devise a QR Code Webquest!

    I found interesting someone posted a comment on the blog posted above, is an EFL teacher in Qatar. He uses the barcode to give his students the correct answers to their quizzes. A very creative approach on how to use a QR codes in education.
