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 could be useful if students are talking about open web searching and refining a search. The leap from "old town" from "ghost town" is pretty large, but it does start addressing the issue of synonyms. The discussion about refinind a query to reflect keywords versus natural language is good.
