Notre Dame College Introduces Two-day Course on How to Use QR Codes in the Classroom

A new graduate-level class at Notre Dame College will teach educators how to keep their students engaged by using QR codes, the square shaped barcode-like images that connect users to an online destination when scanned by a device such as a tablet or smartphone.

Offered for the first time this fall, the two-day course, “Quirky QR Codes in the Classroom and Beyond” is from from 5-9 p.m. on Friday, December 6, and 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, December 7, at the College.

With students bringing iPods, cell phones, laptops and tablets into the classroom, educators have to keep up with very sophisticated technologies─and keep their students from being distracted. This Notre Dame course will aid teachers in using QR codes to teach students how to gather information, conduct research and think critically not matter what the subject material.

“Keeping students engaged is a big challenge for educators,” said Tina Jurcisin in the Office of Professional Development at the College. “QR Codes can be another tool in educators’ technology arsenal and help them connect with their students.”

The course is $260, which must be paid in full at the time of registration. Currently, students cannot use financial aid packages for payment. Those who complete the class earn one graduate credit hour.
