This is a QR code. A QR Code is a 2-dimensional barcode, which has encoded in it a URL (web address), text, or other information. It can be read by a QR code scanner, including QR scanner smartphone apps. Once you have an app installed on your smartphone, open the app and hold your phone’s camera over a QR code to read it. Most QR codes you’ll come across have a URL encoded, so chances are when you read the QR code it will take you to a web page.

This provided insight into uses of the tablet in different classroom settings and helped identify trends for practical uses and student feedback. The article provided perspective for tasks compatible with the tablets, such as quick annotations, note taking, some diagramming, and ease of use for collaborative efforts. With the ongoing evaluations of using tablets in class, additional resources for best practices are always appreciated.
