    QR Code Activity:  QR is the abbreviation of Quick Response code. QR codes have become popular due to fast readability and large storage capacity.  QR code use is on the rise in education because they are easy to create, easy to read and students are intrigued by them. That makes them perfect to integrate into the classroom to increase learning among our students.  Using sites listed on the QR code webpage we will create a QR code activity to use in your classroom.
