And if students do not have a smartphone with a barcode (or QRcode) reader, students can take a picture of the QRcode and send it in to firstname.lastname@example.org and they will text the student back the information on the code.

One of my favorite new resources for creating QRcodes is Polltogo. Polltogo allows anyone to create QRcode polls and survey questions. It is a fantastic and easy site to use. It has a nice free account (up to 20 answers per poll, but you can create as many polls as you like!). The whole site is template-based, making it very easy to set up your polling question and then print off the QRcode. What I LOVE is that you can watch the poll results in real-time! Therefore students can answer the questions at home, in class, around the community, around the world and the answers will update live on the polltogo website! It reminds me a bit of Polleverywhere, but for QRcodes. In addition, people can send in comments on the polls (or you can select a poll type that allows for feedback or open-ended responses). All the poll results are archived nicely on the website. Polltogo is a great starter activity as students are getting settled in class or a wonderful tool for field trips/scavenger hunts!
