I saw my friend and colleague, Kristine Scharaldi, yesterday and she shared an article with me that she had clipped out of the local newspaper. I got a real chuckle out of it. But on the way home, I started thinking about the topic some more and when I passed this house up for sale on the way to pick up my kids, I had to take a picture.
The topic of the article from Kristine was how some gravestone engravers are offering to add a QR-code for an additional fee. What a great way to read, view and learn more about the person you are visiting if you have a smart phone.
I’ve been using QR-Codes when I present as a way to quickly share the URL to the attendees. So far, most people would just assume have the URL, but there seems to be about 20% of the people that are happy to use their phones to scan the code. (My generator of choice is http://goo.gl/ because of all the statistics it provides.)
To learn about using QR Codes in school, you can also take a look at Tom Barrett‘s Interesting Ways presentation on the topic. Or view this video from McGuffey School District in Claysville, PA.
