Eco-friendly practices with QR codes

By using one QR code across many lessons, you can significantly cut down on your printing needs. One answer sheet can be used for any number of tests. You can also use a QR code in classrooms to send students to an online test that has been created for them by their teacher. This is especially useful when students are absent and need to take a test at home.

QR codes are also useful for distributing homework assignments and tests. Instead of giving out papers with the assignment on it, you can scan the QR code on the paper and direct students to their assigned work online. When it comes to grading tests, you can use a QR code to print out the results of each student's work without having to scan each paper separately!

Distribute information with ease

Students can use their phones or tablets to bring any topic to life and get more information when they scan a QR code. Imagine if you could point your phone at a poster of the solar system and instantly find out more about the planets, or point it at a picture of the Pyramids in Egypt and find out how they were built. You can do this with Flowcode’s QR code generator for schools!

Get to know your teachers

QR codes on teachers’ pictures and bios around the school can drive more information about them. Teachers are often busy people and do not have time to update their bios often. This is why a mobile-friendly website is ideal for teachers. The website can be updated as needed without having to wait for someone else to edit it.

Teachers should also have a way for parents and students to contact them directly. This can include email addresses, phone numbers, and other ways of reaching them quickly. Flowcode provides a free QR code generator for schools that makes creating these QR codes easy.
