So what are QR codes? Quite simply, a Quick Response code, is a “specific matrix barcode (or two-dimensional code) that is readable by dedicated QR barcode readers and camera telephones. The code consists of black modules arranged in a square pattern on a white background. The information encoded may be text, URL, or other data.” (Wikipedia)
We hope to incorporate this emerging technology in the celebration of our community’s centennial. Residents and students of all ages are invited to capture their homes’ history through sound and images. We will then archive the information and artifacts online with the use of QR codes, thereby allowing everyone in the community to learn more about this town’s rich history.
To learn how to use them, check out this tutorial.
