For the participants
In this activity, you will need to download a QR code reader, wander around a gallery of “scan-able” codes that have been posted around the venue, and answer questions in the code scanning worksheet. These questions are based on what you have found on the codes.
After watching a presentation about QR codes, you will be introduced to various social publishing projects and become familiar with accessing information resources via scan-able codes.
For the facilitator
Before the activity, a gallery of scan-able codes needs to be put up around the room.
Participants will need to do the following
Step 1 – install a QR reader or QR Scanner on their own phone – once they have done this, then they will be able to access websites, apps and other services.
Step 2 – start at the beginning, point their phones at the QR codes and let the scanned code led them to information associated with the code.
Step 3 – Find answers to the question posed on the gallery Q & A sheet.
Step 4 – Move to the next gallery item, scan code and find answers.After the activity has been complete, the facilitator should allow participants to compare answers and respond to queries if necessary.
