I wanted to create a ‘useful websites’ wall but I wanted the interactivity that QR codes could provide. I didn’t really know how to go about including QR codes so I took the cheat’s way out and found Poster Oven- http://www.posteroven.com/
You can change the background and content quickly and easily and the QR codes are generated for you.
Things I have used Poster Oven for so far:
Classroom notices for each class so they can follow the blog and twitter etc:
Useful website displays:
Things I plan to do next year:
Make even more website links for students to use for study and revision
Use them for CPD promotion around College
I saw a colleague who had attached QR codes to the attendance rules and it placed the College’s contact details in the student’s phone- I loved that and will aim for something similar.
Perhaps I’ll even explore QR codes that aren’t generated for me so that I can link to documents and powerpoints of use
