Jeff Utecht, who blogs at The Thinking Stick, has gone out on a limb and predicted that QR codes willl be the next big thing. He might be right, too; his track record for predictions is spot on for the last four years. And the technology is dirt simple.
Just download a QR Code reader onto your handphone (I got Bee Tagg for my Blackberry), and you’re all set to decipher codes like this, which I posted on the senior bulletin board at 8:30 Monday morning.
I made the QR Code at a code generator site. You can enter a text message, a link, or a phone number. Jeff has included some great ideas for using QR Codes in and around school.
