OK next idea is to put QR codes on some books to link to added content or multimedia. As a test run I found a YouTube video on Jo Fothergill’s Facebook page that was an interpretation of Craig Smith‘s ‘The Wonkey Donkey’ Book which also has an iPad eBook option. For overseas readers you should know The Wonky Donkey won the 2009 NZ Children’s Choice Book Awards.
To make a QR code for it I went Google’s URL shortner http://goo.gl/ and copied and pasted the URL into it. As long as you are signed in to Google you will see details. Click on it.
For some reason it shoots you to the bottom of a page. Scroll up and you will see the QR code. As easy as that.
Print that code off and stick it on the book cover. Easy as!
I will do a few more for next week’s QR code exploration. Yay- the QR Code even works from this photo of the book.
