Insert your link and then, save your QR Code. Now, you may add your QR code to a class website or blog, print it and attach it to a literacy center or test, or add it to a business card….whatever your heart desires. Go crazy, friends.
Now, using an Audio QR Code is exactly like any other QR Code. Scan the code and click, “Go online.”
Voila! Your audio recording opens and begins playing. From here you may pause, rewind, and replay as many times as you would like! 🙂
My favorite 2 places to use QR codes are literacy centers and assessments. I attach a QR code to the corner of the center and my kids can scan it. They’ll hear me saying the “I Can” statement and giving any directions/tips/reminders for the center!
At first, this seems like a daunting process, but DO NOT FEAR! Once you’ve done it a few times, it is fast. Using Audio QR Codes has been a huge asset to my classroom and really keeps my students working independently.
So, please tell me – How do you use Audio QR Codes???

I love SuperNote and use it to record my student's reading fluency which I share at conferences. I think perhaps, I will have a few of my best readers record themselves reading our decodable books and make into QR codes for my students. Thanks for the tips.
Yes, my LLI boys love using it for fluency practice, too. It's always a treat to "make a movie" of our reading. 🙂

This is amazing – I love how you are integrating technology to not only keep your students engaged but to differentiate instruction in a seamless way – love!!!
Love the accommodation that you make for those boys! What great use of technology to help them access the text!

This might be my answer to differentiating spelling tests. I also love the idea of attaching directions to center and independent work. Thank You!
Oooh – I love the idea of using them to differentiating spelling test! Awesome. 🙂

I was so excited to find this post today! We were just given an iPad each for our classrooms and now I need to find ways to integrade it. This is great!! I'd much rather put the learning tools into the hands of my students….they get so much more out of it.
Absolutely, Tchur8! You will absolutely love your iPad. It has totally changed the way I teach. If you search my blog (iPad), you'll see some great free apps we use all the time! 🙂

Fabulous as always!
Thank you, Miss Sarah! You're too kind. 🙂
Rosanne Riley says
Can it be saved somewhere other than dropbox? For example a Wikispaces or Google website?
Absolutely! Anywhere that gives you a link. 🙂 Thanks for stopping by!

Great ideas for sure come from great teachers TU for this very hard work and for sharing.
does anyone know how to use QR codes using voiceover?
I’ve not been able to make it work with the iphone.

I love your site! I am trying to create audio links so test questions can be read by any student, including my students on an IEP. Reading six test to six different kids is getting a little old! I tried creating a link to an mp3 in my dropbox, but when I scan the QR code, it wants me to download it instead of simply playing it. Your examples look exactly like my links to dropbox, but yours play when I scan them. What gives? Thanks!

I just found this post, and it is so helpful! Thank you so much! I was curious about what it looks like when you scan the QR code on something with sound. When I scan mine, it opens up to the dropbox link and plays the audio. Is that what it looks like yours? I just want to make sure I'm doing it correctly. Thanks again!
