QR stands for "Quick Response" and they look like this:

You have to first download a QR code reader app for your iPod (the kind with a camera) or smartphone, but there are plenty available.

Then just point your camera phone at the code (e.g., on your email screen) and it will read the URL and take you to:  http://hol.wirenode.mobi -- which is a mobile website for a teacher conference here in Singapore.

Text, SMS messages, URLs, and phone numbers can be encoded in a QR code.

You can make your own QR codes on this website:   http://qrcode.kaywa.com/

Have a go!

Then start thinking about how these could be used.....  We have some ideas to share with you.
