QR Codes in Science

After reading blogs by Louis Phinney and Keri-lee Beasley about their work with QR codes at their school in Singapore, I was inspired to use this technology in my teaching class.

QR-codes can help bridge the world of paper and pencil with hand held technology devices like Ipod Touch, Iphones and Smart Phones.  In our science area, we often generate screen casts of our lessons and upload them to our LMS.  However, students who are on the go, would rather access this information quickly and easily.  So, we are starting to create
QR codes that link the students directly to these screen casts.  Here is a short video on one way we use QR-codes for science.
