Q3 Quick Response Introduction

2. Visual Learning


Important Note: You will need access to a smartphone or tablet device with a camera to complete the breakout activity and QR codes.

In this Quest, you are going to learn about QR codes, do a QR activity, and learn how to create a QR code which is a special type of two-dimensional bar code.

One reason they are so popular is that you can store a lot of information on a QR code, unlike a standard UPC barcode which is usually just a bunch of numbers and letters. Typically you use a smartphone or other mobile device to scan a QR code and it will display the code and convert it into something useful like a standard URL for a website.
