Step 1: Purchase game. This game came from Learning Resources, although similar games are in many educational catalogs. I sorted the playing chips by number so I would know how many QR codes I'd need for each number.
Step 2: Download the i-nigma app in iTunes. This app will scan the QR code and provide a verbal response (not just a written text like in most QR reader apps). It is easy to use. Once you open the app point the device's camera at the QR code and it will do the rest! (which is scan it, send you to the qr voice website and then read it to you) After scanning the students just have to go back to home and open the i-nigma app to do the next one!
Step 3: Create QR codes. Head to qrvoice.net and type in the box the text you want to be spoken. We posted a link to download a google document with qrvoice QR codes done for you for numbers 1-10. Check it out http://goo.gl/bgqzCJ it is FREE! When you go into the document you can change the size of the QR codes or copy them to make as many as you need. For this game I created 7 QR codes for each number as that is how many playing chips I have.
Step 4: Scan the qrcode with the i-nigma app. It will speak to you the text you assigned to the QR code.
Step 5: Print, cut out and laminate the amount of QR codes you need to the back of the playing chips.
We'd love to hear from you if there is any other classroom games that you have modified using QR codes. Or perhaps you have an activity that you'd like for us to create QR codes for! We'd love to help you increase student accountability in your classroom with the use of QR codes!
