Have you ever wondered what those strange new bar codes are that are popping up in newspapers, on posters, on the web?
They are QR codes (2 dimensional bar codes) and they offer one of the easiest methods by far of loading web content on a Smart phone. To give it a try, using the scan option on your phone. What page does this code link to?
If you are interested in using QR codes in your daily work, post them on a website, a blog, a social network, sign up at bit.ly, shorten a link and generate one of your very own.
Just consider the implications this may have for the role of mobile devices in education!
