Before I discovered QR Codes, one of the most common phrases I heard when I asked my sixth grade students to visit certain websites in our Bring Your Own Device classroom was, “Mr. Weyers, the website doesn’t work!” Hearing that, I would always saunter over to the student, look at their device, and discovered that 90% of the time they had typed the web address incorrectly. QR or “Quick Response” Codes instantly solved that problem.
