You probably see Quick Response (QR) codes in advertisements, on products, and online every day. QR codes, like bar codes, are becoming more and more prevalent in education and everywhere else (advertisements, TV, your bag of chips, soda, etc.).

If you or your students or parents or classroom visitors have a mobile device, you’ll be able to scan QR codes– Perfect for Open Houses, Fine Arts Festivals, Parent Nites, Literacy Events, Classroom Scavenger Hunts, and much more!
