Jesus Good Shepherd Students Use QR Codes to Learn

Jesus the Good Shepherd School’s sixth grade science classes have recently been studying “Forces that Shape the Earth.” Mrs. Katherine High, JGS sixth grade science teacher, came up with an interactive and fun way to review for the tests.  Questions regarding topics such as the continental drift, plate tectonics, earthquakes and volcanoes were incorporated into QR (quick response) codes that were then printed and posted around the school gym. The students were given various tech devices such as smart phones and iPads, and using apps such as Red Laser, scanned codes in order to uncover the questions that were hidden in the code. Students then answered on their review sheets. This proved to be a very effective and fun way for the students to prepare for their upcoming tests!
