Course Description

QR Codes and Augmented Reality are fast becoming ‘change-makers’ for the 21st Century classroom. QR Codes are essentially barcodes that contain information and Augmented Reality is an image that contains a video overlay. We are seeing more and more of this in marketing, promotion and advertising. So, how can these two things make a difference in education? They are easy to create, easy to read and students are intrigued by them, making them an ideal motivational tool. They are perfect to integrate into the classroom to increase learning among our students across all Curriculum areas. This course will teach you how to make and use QR Codes and Augmented Reality in your 21st Century classroom that will inspire and enhance your student’s learning.
