THE BAR CODE!

October 7th marks the 60th anniversary of the barcode. SIXTY years! This technology has been around for a long time! From a pack of gum to education in the classroom to coupons for the grocery store, barcodes are everywhere!

I have recently been experimenting with uses for QR (quick response) Codes in the classroom. I am coming up with a ton of ideas! The use of 1:1 student iPads in our school will soon provide an opportunity for me to try out some of these activities! Here is an infographic with some fun facts about this technology.

To see the infographic, scan this barcode below with your ipad or smartphone. You will need a QR Reader (free) to do this. If you don't have a device that can scan, click on Wasp Barcocde Technologies to access the infographic.
