Using QR Codes to Differentiate Instruction

Different Codes for Different Activities
With more iPads in classrooms now, using QR codes doesn't depend on having enough Smartphones in kids' pockets. Monica Burns points out that QR codes can be a quick and easy way to point kids to a variety of resources without singling them out. Read her post for some good ideas!

"So the next time you want your tech-enabled students to work on a differentiated task, try sending them to the same website with different activities to complete. Another option is to create unique QR codes for different students (maybe with colors or images) that will help separate children into leveled groups without making anyone feel singled out."
