I have seen a lot of awesome scavenger hunt ideas for a foreign language class. I wanted to try a QR audio code hunt for a particularly gorgeous Friday day. It took me about 20 minutes to create and print 10 QR codes. I found an old tutorial on how to create audio QR codes, and none of the websites worked, so I wanted to update this idea with what I used here. You could also print double if you have a large class. Here is how I did it:
- First I made my recordings in Vocaroo. I love Vocaroo because it doesn’t require a log-in, is free and produces a link. Once you record, you save the recording, and you can copy the link.
- Then, I went to this QR code generator. I put the link from Vocaroo into the website and click “create QR code.” I downloaded the QR code that they displayed. When you click on download, an ad pops up. It is free- you do not have to click, log-in or buy anything! (Don’t click on the ad!)
- I put all of the downloaded QR codes on a Word doc. I also numbered the codes, so I could keep track if I lost any between classes.
- The best part is that students can use Snapchat to read the QR codes. They aim their screen at it, and take a “snap.” A few seconds later the link pops up! I would recommend using this platform for HS students. I had students recreate the pictures as I described them in Spanish. You could also have them draw pictures of each one which would be fun as well. Here are some of my favorite pictures from Friday: Also share how you use QR codes in your classroom!
