USE OF QR CODES IN TEACHING MATERIALS

The importance a student must acquire, within the European Higher Education Area (EHEA) during his or her teaching-learning process, will lead him or her to ‘learn to learn”, an ability that will have to be maintained throughout his or her life. The teaching methodology required, therefore, must be based on a teaching approach that must be adapted to a new system of dissemination of knowledge. In this context, it seems unquestionable that ICTs, together with a deep change of the educational basis, are necessary to achieve this objective. In this work, a new way of dissemination of knowledge, by providing information through teaching documents with QR codes, is presented. These codes are encrypted keys that can be easily read by any optical device of daily use (mobile phone, iPad, etc.), in which it has been previously installed an adequate software (which is usually free) that, in its simplest form, directs a web browser to the requested encrypted webpage. The access to the information is much more direct, more comfortable and it stimulates students’ participation in discussion forums in the same webpage they have acceded.
