QR Codes For School Interactive Learning

Posted: August 29th, 2018 | Author: | Filed under: General, QR Codes For Education, QR Codes Use Cases | No Comments »

QR codes for school learning are some of the most efficient ways to educate the class with more interaction. Instead of using the common visual aids, textbooks or handouts, interactive websites such as those created via Google Sites have made it possible for students to follow the lessons completely.

Google Sites is a free website builder that lets you effortlessly create interactive learning websites for students. This tool makes it easier for a user to lay out the pages without the need for coding. With QR Stuff, you can create QR codes for school learning using Google Sites.

How To Create Interactive Pages In Google Sites

The new Google Sites makes building your page a whole lot easier, allowing you to present it as a visual for your students in a much more efficient way. It provides a ready-made platform that consists of a drag and drop feature for all the materials you need for academics.

Our example here makes use of elements that include infographics, text, video and a quiz made using Google Forms. The form can be embedded in your website, which can then be linked through QR codes for school classes.

1. Create Your Site. To get started on Google Sites and begin creating the website, click the plus sign button located on the lower right-hand corner of your screen. You’ll be directed to an Untitled page, so you must enter a unique name to keep track of your site. This site document name is only viewable by you, and by others after you have published the site. Take note that you need to have two or more pages in your website for the site name to appear.

2. Select A Theme. The appearance of your website means a lot. Select from any theme in the Google Sites gallery, along with adjusting font styles, colours and backgrounds. You may also upload an original image on the header portion.

3. Add Content. Click “Insert” or double-click on the portion of the page where you want to add content. You can add forms, text boxes, URLs of other web pages, photos, videos, documents and files from Google Drive or Google Embeds.

4. Publish Your Site. Click “Publish” and be re-directed to a pop-up box where you enter a unique name to the end of your URL. The URL is editable anytime, provided that no other users have registered those particular words in the web domain. Preview your site’s URL to confirm that your site published correctly. There are more functionalities on Google Sites waiting to be explored.

Creating The QR Code

1. Go to QRStuff.com and select Website URL as your data type in Column 1.

2. In Column 2, enter the Google Sites URL for your interactive learning page.

3. Select the foreground colour for your QR code in Column 3. If you’re a paid subscriber you will also be able to set the image size, resolution, output file type (PNG, JPG, TIF, EPS, SVG, PDF or DXF) and error correction level. Paid subscribers can also choose a QR code template from a variety of available designs in the gallery.

4. Click the “Download QR Code” button and your Google Sites QR code for the interactive learning page is ready for use.

Using Google Forms For Quizzes And Making Them Live

To include the quiz on the Google Sites web page, it is highly recommended to use Google Forms. Questions can be in the form of multiple choices, checkboxes or a drop-down. You may also choose to format the answer in a short statement, an entire paragraph, or in date and time.

Teachers can also add QR Codes to a book, presentation or lessons to enrich students with online content. For instance, we have used a portion of the Google Sites to present a quiz to the students. As they supply answers to the test, the instructor can flash these answers live on a projected screen inside the classroom and discuss these responses in real-time. To do this, simply head over to your form’s Responses tab.

Make It A Bit Fancy

While free users can change the foreground colour of QR codes for school interactive learning, paid subscribers have the ability to also change the appearance of the QR code image and embed a logo or image in its centre. Just use the steps outlined above to create your Website URL QR code for your page, and then, before you download your finished QR code, click the “Style Your QR Code” button to change its appearance.

Here is an example that shows what could be done to the Website URL QR code created above using our QR Code Styling feature. Our styling interface allows you to make your QR code more visually distinctive and, by embedding a suitable image, perhaps more intuitive as well.

Students Attendance Tracking QR Codes

Posted: July 19th, 2018 | Author: | Filed under: General, QR Codes For Education, QR Codes Use Cases | No Comments »

QR codes can now replace the old style of using pen and paper, or a roll call in class to check student attendance. Create an attendance tracking QR code using QR Stuff for tracking attendance in class in a modern and organized way with Google Sheets and Google Drive.

It is very easy to create and to make use of this QR code especially with the built-in features on QRStuff.com. Using the QR code generator ensures integrity as the website also provides information about the device used for scanning.

This data type is a standard part of the QR Stuff paid subscriber feature set and is available to all full subscribers. Become a paid subscriber now.

Create Your Students Attendance Tracking QR Code

  1. First up, choose the Attendance Tracking data type from column 1.
  2. In column 2 click on the “Google Sheet Name” field. You will then be asked to log into your Google account which will give us the authority to create the tracking spreadsheet in your Google Drive, and then update it on your behalf as each scan event is recorded. (Please note that this access authority is limited exclusively to the tracking spreadsheet only and doesn’t give us any other user or access privileges for your Google account.)

  1. In the “Google Sheet Name” field enter the name you would like to give your tracking spreadsheet, and complete the 3 fields for “Location”, “Action” and “Event Description” – these 3 fields will be recorded in your spreadsheet. For example, if you’re having a class lecture in Room 101 and you’d like to record student attendance, you would enter Room 101 as the Location, Attendance as the Action, and Lecture Class as the Event Description.
  2. At this stage, you can download your completed QR Code by clicking the “Download QR Code” button.

Scan And See It in Live On Google Sheets

Now that you have the Attendance Tracking QR code ready, students can scan the code, which may be displayed in front of the room, posted on the bulletin board or sent to them via email. Once the QR code is scanned and their name is filled out, they will appear present on the Google Sheet that you provided when you generated the QR code earlier.

However, before students are entered into the attendance roll, they have to key in particular information requested by the system. When the QR code is scanned by the student, the location, action and event description details that you specified above are displayed, and the person scanning the QR code is asked to enter some details to identify them. Clicking on “Go” confirms their attendance check-in and records their details in your Google Sheet.

For instructors and administrators who want to access the master list of students who are in the class, perhaps for random calling of names during recitation, they can log into Google Docs at https://docs.google.com using the Google Account that you specified in Step 2 above. The spreadsheet you authorised us to create and update on your behalf will be displayed in the list of available sheets. Further information on this access can be found here.

While free users can change the foreground colour of their QR code, paid subscribers have the ability to also change the appearance of the QR code image and embed a logo or image in its centre. Use the steps outlined above to create your Attendance Tracking QR code, and then, before you download your finished QR code, click the “Style Your QR Code” button to change its appearance.

QR Code Rubber Stamps & Stencils

Posted: June 18th, 2011 | Author: | Filed under: General, QR Codes For Education | No Comments »

QR Code Rubber StampBryan at Holmes Stamps in Florida contacted me on Twitter the other day to let me know that they were making QR code rubber stamps. Holmes is a family business that’s been going since 1954 and this is just another way they’re making old school products relevant to the 21st century.

They can make you a self-inking model with a crisp, clean image of your QR Code for easy and reliable scanning. You can also get them to add text to the stamp.

Anyway, I saw the QR code rubber stamps as the ideal way to retro-fit a QR code onto something that should have had one on it from the start, or to quickly apply one later to a document in a way that adds further context to it.

OK, a sticker would do the job too, but a rubber stamp is a quick, simple and cheap way to achieve the same result. You might need a couple of them, but if the QR codes contain data that can be applied repeatedly then it would make sense to use a rubber stamp.

A few examples I immediately thought of where a QR code rubber stamp would be handy to add QR codes after-the-fact:

  • The last box of brochures, business cards or flyers before you start using the latest print run that actually have a QR code printed on them.
  • Printed products out of legacy systems that don’t directly support adding images (like the customer invoices generated by your 1997 accounting system)
  • A short term scan-to-win promo to add to sales dockets at point-of-sale.
  • Product packaging, die-cut boxes and cartons that you buy unprinted because printed ones are too expensive.
  • Marking student assignments (the QR code links to the school extranet where they can log in to see the teachers comments).
  • Adding a device-scannable digital decision to anything the stamp will print on – yes/no, approved/rejected, passed/failed, etc.
  • Adding the contact details of the originator to a completed pro-forma document.
  • An alternative to a temporary tattoo – it doesn’t just have to be a paper product.

My head pretty much exploded when I starting thinking about the possibilities, but there’s a start.

I’m sure there’s other companies out there doing these as well, but Bryan was the one that contacted me so he’s the one I’ll recommend you go and talk to.
