Once you get a hang of the process, creating QR codes to access student recordings is fairly straight forward and students can quickly learn to do it themselves. There are mays ways to use QR codes in the foreign language classroom.
One thing I like to do is make the codes available to parents so that they can listen to their kids speaking the language. For example, I made this bulletin board interactive so that the students voices can be heard reading their writing assignment. All it takes is a QR reading app on a smartphone to quickly and instantly hear the student’s voice.
Here are the steps for recording audio and creating a QR Code. There are various apps for recording audio and a number of website to create QR codes. These are simply the ones that I use.
Record on an app like Voice Record (available for free).
You can use Google drive to upload the audio files or Dropbox . Create a folder for the audio. Put the audio files into the folder.
Click on an audio file and select share.
Generate a QR link. Use http://www.qrstuff.com/
Paste the URL into the box and QR code will generate to the right. You can download the image or copy the image from the screen.
Thank you!! I have been trying to do this for quite some time and this will totally help!!
