QR Codes and Paper Docs



I'm sharing this video for several of reasons:

  • I think the animation at the beginning is a great way (for students) to get a quick overview of the history of transmitting (written) communications.
  • I think the use o QR codes on documents stored in the cloud might be an interesting step forward, or at least sideways, from sharing through a site like Google docs.  From this video, it looks like it is not a way to work collaborative, as you can in certain conditions on a Google doc. but it looks like an interesting idea for sharing "fixed" docs, like a PYP Scope and Sequence, or a school's Mission and Vision statement.
  • I'm going to do some experimenting:
