Lufkin students use QR codes for classroom work

Posted: Updated:

Some Lufkin students are going to school with a little more tech savvy, after a lesson with a popular app device. Students across the district recently participated in the Digital Learning Day.

"A QR Code without the devices, it just looks like black dots, but the devices can scan and all the little dots are like words for the device." Dunbar student Jaren Charvos said.

The students scanned codes to unlock clues on a recycling scavenger hunt.

"I thought it would be a great way to integrate what they are doing with recycling and something they could easily use with the devices they were bringing," LISD Technology Specialist Summer Garcia said.

Once the students got the first clue they were off to the playground for their first of five stops.

Later on, the students then get to show adults what they learned.

"We started with second grade, but we could have done it sooner because they already know what they are doing with the devices," Garcia said.

They are eager to go home and teach their parents a thing or two.

"I'm pretty sure they know how, but I'm going to go home and tell them anyway," Charvos said.

Students at Dunbar were not the only ones to take part; Kurth Primary also had a QR Code scavenger hunt and at Brookhollow, students had a history lesson and tweeted about it.
