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 upper left-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 https://www.qrstuff.com/?type=websiteurl and have the “Website URL” data type pre-selected from column 1.

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

3. Select the foreground colour for your QR code in the Style section. 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. Read our blog post on QR Code Styling for more details about how to use this feature.
