I created 5 texts describing holidays in German and QR coded 20 questions to go with them. I used classtools.net. to create the codes as students can get the information offline, so there are not issues with credit on their phone. For most, this was their first experience with QR codes so if nothing else, they now know how to access QR coded data. I scattered the QR codes around the room, some more hidden than others, and students worked in groups to scan the codes, collect the questions and use the
texts to answer. The whole activity took about 20 minutes with students picking out key information from 5 quite challenging texts which they probably would have found daunting had I just given them a traditional worksheet. The student feedback was really positive and they were engaged throughout. I gave a prize to the fastest team but was really pleased to see that all students worked together to produce the right answers. The full German task is here to download.
