At the end of last school year, we had a few of our teachers experimenting with QR codes. We see QR codes having great potential for making student learning public – that is, using QR codes to share student work along with student self-assessments and reflections within our learning environment. You can read more about QR codes at our school here.
As an example, we have begun to use QR codes to document student learning in the fine arts. Students can create multimedia ‘artist statements’ such as the video example below. These students can then create exhibitions of their work within our school, accompanied by the QR code. Our goal is to increase the visibility of student learning and to make our school a dynamic site of student expression.
