A fourth grade class at Stingel Elementary School in Ontario is doing a special project that started with the question, "what is this square code you find on boxes of consumer products"? It's called a Q-R or Quick Response code, and the class started by learning what it's used for. Their teacher Tonya Winningham is taking it a step further, by using QR codes to help the students learn about the science of nature. The class is using iPads to scan QR codes as part of a scavenger hunt about eco-systems. The QR code project was developed with the help of Ontario Schools' Technology Director Michelle Vance, and Literacy Trainer Carrie Wood.
