QR Codes are everywhere and they are all in “action” but have you thought about using them with your students?As teachers we need to start to think outside the box and start using them in our classes in new and creative ways. Therefore,we will be looking at different methods to create and use them in class in a fun way. This session hopefully will inspire everyone about these magical codes and add another string to your professional bow. So join us to combine ease, speed and creativity to enrich your lessons.
