QR Codes and Augmented Reality

QR Codes and Augmented Reality

Last week I attended the Upstate Technology Conference 2017 and one of the sessions I went to was #Scannable Technology: Using QR codes and Augmented Reality with the ACES framework by Monica Burns. The website for the presentation was http://classtechtips.com/utc17.

Scannable technology is an interaction of mobile devices and a trigger image to connect users with content.

Make sure you are purposeful when you put QR codes in places. Putting them in a subway or on the side of a bus is not an appropriate place.

QR codes can bring you to images, websites, audio, files, and videos.
