QR Codes in the classroom

There has been a lot of talk lately on twitter and in my blog reader about the use of QR codes in the classroom. I think in general there are some good uses for them in the class but to what extent? Right now I think the use of the QR Codes is somewhat limiting.  As more and more schools begin to allow the use of cell phones in classes, the use of QR codes will increase.

Angie Hill a Chemistry teacher at Blythewood High School  is using QR Codes to link to student created tutorials and videos on lab safety and procedures. This enables students to scan for information which normally would have required the teacher to stop what they were doing to answer commonly asked questions. The use of the QR codes has allowed Mrs. Hill more time to work with the students in the lab.
