We have been using the QR Code Reader app on the LearnPad to provide students with the opportunity to get up and move around the classroom. During our math lesson today, students used their LearnPads to scan codes. After the code was scanned, a question was displayed. According to what the question asked, students then had to record their answer. While this is something that could have been accomplished on paper, it got kids up and moving. It was a great way to utilize the LearnPads, have kids moving and learning at the same time. Below is the file we used if you know some early primary teachers that would like some practice with telling time in the digital format.
On the iPads we have always used the Qrafter app. It has the same functionality as the QR Code Reader on the LearnPads. It allows you to scan with either the front or rear facing cameras. You can also tog on and off what happens when the code is scanned. You can set it to automatically open to the code or ask approval before opening. We have been able to use both iPads and LearnPads to complete our QR Code activities. If you would like to see some of the activities we have done with the iPad and QR codes, check them out here.
