The AR is a series of challenges for students to complete over multiple class periods to review for End of Course Testing.

Students used:
Smartphones, laptops, puzzles, online games and much more to complete these challenges.

Students were divided into teams to ensure each group had a QR capable cellphone/ipod and a laptop. QR Codes QR stands for QUICK RESPONSE
They were originally used in the car industry, but have become popular due to accessibility and the increase of technology everywhere.
They are essentially barcodes that can link you to anything you want:
and More! QR Code Activity and Discussion Let's try out an activity!
Around the room you should notice some QR Codes.
Your goal is to scan each code and follow the directions to solve the clues and unscramble the letters!
The first person/pair to figure out the puzzle will get a prize.
Good luck! Other Ideas for QR Codes or Activities Amazing Race Activities Latitude and Longitude Practice on the Global Grid QR Code Readers Take a minute to download a QR reader to your smartphone, iPad, or iPod.

QR Droid Creating QR Codes First, you need to go to a website that will create QR codes.
Here are a few:
All of these offer basic QR code generation.
If you are looking to link a website, shorten it first using tinyurl or goo.gl. If the text is too long the code becomes more complex and harder to scan.
If you link to a Google Doc or Form, you do not have to change the code if you change the form. Awesome! Questions? Celaina: chuckeba@irvingisd.net

Stacy: sforce@irvingisd.net If you don't have one of these devices, find a partner who does! Google Forms In the activity, the QR codes took you to a google form question. Let's take a few minutes to go over how to create those for your own classroom. Activity debrief We did a similar activity as part of the Amazing Race.
How do you think students would react to an activity like this?
What would be the advantages to doing this versus a test/quiz/paper?
Do you have other ideas for how you could use these QR codes to help students review and get ready?
