This weekend I'm sharing an exciting QR Code Reader that I just discovered. QR Codes are popping up all over the place - and they are headed straight for our classrooms. In the past, I've blogged about some of the ways I've used QR codes with my students. You can read about that by clicking HERE and HERE. But what do you do when you don't have a smartphone or a tablet to scan a QR Code?
Enter: QuickMark QR Code Reader! I put this FREE program to the test and was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to install, use, and scan QR codes straight from my computer! No smartphone needed!
Here is what you do:
1. Download and install QuickMark onto your computer. You'll need to choose the system that you want the program installed on. For example, if you are using Windows, choose the Windows version. If your computer is a Mac, choose the Mac version.
Pick your version and download the reader by clicking HERE.
I clicked the little bar-code picture at the bottom of the box (right beside the button that looks like a camera) and dragged the box over the QR code that is on my document. The box is "see-through" so that you can center the QR code in the frame of the box.
Thank you so much for joining me for another Weekend App Attack! Today, I am headed to my best friend's for a day of lounging in the sun and relaxing by the lake. Ahhh...Don't you love summer?! :)
