Using QR Codes in Reading Centers

I love the ideas I have seen for using QR (quick response) codes in reading centers.  It makes it so easy for students to independently access technology as they choose stories to listen to while they follow along. 

Go to Meghan’s Pad (http://www.meghanspad.com/search/label/Techie%20Tuesday) to read how Meghan, a kindergarten teacher, makes QR codes using  SafeShare.tv to turn video URLs into ad free videos easily accessible to students.  She has also made it even easier for us by making a free Teachers Pay Teacher download(https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/QR-Code-Listen-to-Reading-Book-Rings-2462038) that includes the pictures and QR codes for several books appropriate for preschoolers and kindergarteners.  She puts them on rings so the children can flip through to find the book that she has chosen, or one they choose on their own.

I found an ad free, QR Code Reader app (QRweb, but there are several) that is so simple to use.  You just open the app, point the tablet at the QR code, and voila!, the video opens and the students are ready to hear and follow along with the story.  You have to love technology!  I know I do 🙂

Let me know if you use this and how it works for you.
