About the session:- 

This session will focus on the ever emerging technology QR (Quick Response) codes. As a recent edition in the Horizon Report they have grown to become a powerful addition in any classroom. These simple 21st century barcodes have

changed the way in which we connect to the internet. QR Codes are basically a modern version of the barcode, however by the very fact that they can be read from all directions they can contain much more information.
