What can you do with a QR code?

Ever since my friend and colleague, Renee, introduced me to QR (quick response) codes, I have been fascinated with the possibilities. I am still not sure how I might one day use QR codes, but for now they are fun to play around with. I have found a few good websites for making your own codes in case you would like to check them out for yourself. This website will let you turn a URL, text, phone number or SMS into a QR code, while this one will create a business card with your contact information contained in the code. Don't forget that you will need to add a QR scanner app to your smart phone in order to read a QR code. Once you do, you can use it to scan the code below.

Let me know if you think of any ways that you might use one of these codes, and in the meantime, have fun!

QR code for my PLP team's action research project wiki page

  1. My PLP team is is headed to our culminating event in Dallas on Monday. Rather than print brocheres for our presentation, we printed business cards with a QR code for our Wiki site. Although they're not exactly the way I wanted them to look, I'm still pretty proud of the way they turned out. I've added the code to my post above.
