Audio QR Code Learning Center


Set up a recording center for students that will allow students to embed an audio recording into a QR code. Older students can follow the instructions on their own; younger students may need a teacher, parent, or older student to help.

Getting Ready

  1. Set up a “recording station” in a quiet area. Make sure the area includes a computer with a microphone.
  2. Decide with the teacher what to have students record:
    – a message for Mom for Mother’s Day
    – information about artwork they’ve created
    – facts about an animal (or any concept)
    – a review of a book or movie
    – a story they’ve created
    – themselves speaking in a foreign language
    – other
  3. One student at at time will come to the recording station to record their voice.
