I’m a huge fan of scannable technology because it makes it easy for students to access material you’ve handpicked for them to view. Shomi is a tool that lets users create a font based link reminiscent of a QR code. Teachers can make Shomi links and students can scan with the Shomi app. Because Shomi uses a font based link it can go into a line of text or any other small space on a page with a simple cut and paste.
Shomi lets users edit links they’ve made and track links to see if they are being used. Scannable technology has a huge potential for increasing access to resources for students in any learning environment. Teachers can connect students to websites, videos, or any content hosted on the web.
