A few days ago I received a Diigo Teacher-Librarian alert to Gwyneth Jones’s QR Code Comic Tutorial. Her comic format is a great vehicle for sharing basic information. Her picture reminded me about a Scholarly Kitchen post by Michael Clarke (11 December 2009) Get a Whiff of Google’s Augmented Reality Stickers.
I followed up that link with a visit to The Big Wild campaign that is using posters in seven Canadian cities, “hoping to entice smartphone owners to scan the image and access one of our mobile-friendly petition pages.”
The Big Wild poster uses “a QR code, or 2-D barcode. These codes–they look kind of like crossword puzzles, can be read by the cameras on smartphones. They can store text information, SMS messages or (as is the case with our campaign) a URL for a website.”
After this journey of discovery I am very excited by the potential of QR codes to inform and develop my work. I am delighted that I traveled the globe to find a PE teacher in country Victoria
but profoundly disappointed that I have only just found his work. Gwyneth
embody for me the wonderful altruism teachers exhibit and exude. I am going to monitor their work very carefully and hang where the wild things are.
After posting this item I have discovered:
I did blog about QR codes throughout 2011. This is a link
to all my QR posts.
