    I see a lot of great ideas about uses for QR codes in the classroom, but I have not found a page that shows the mechanics of how it is done. Do I need a special app? or a website?

    The only way I've been able to use QR codes is by using a website that can translate the URL to QR. There are a bunch of them out there. That being said, your students may need an app on their devices to read the codes.

    Not sure if it works this way with all phones, but on my iPhone I just use the camera function like I’m going to take a picture, and it opens the link that the code leads to.

    In a 1-1 classroom, you can put a QR code up as a way for students to access reading, quizzes, or anything on their devices. It's the 21st century version of asking students to turn to a certain page in their textbooks.

    All modern phones have such a function, and if they are not in the pre-installed programs, then you can easily download
