Title: Student Evaluations of EFL Activities Incorporating Quick Response Codes
Authors: Rivers, Damian
Abstract: Within the field of M-learning the mobile phone is often criticized for the things it cannot do. Much of this criticism arises out of direct comparisons with the capabilities of the traditional computer. This presentation argues that the mobile phone should be seen as a facilitator of learning rather than a complete location free solution. In Japan almost all mobile camera phones include barcode scanning technology as a standard feature. As a result QR (Quick Response) codes are now a regular sight in Japanese society as a means of advertising and marketing. Despite this their implementation into educational settings has been virtually non-existent. This presentation describes the process and presents the findings of a project which attempted to introduce three specific examples of basic QR code activities into the university EFL classroom. The presentation proposes that mobile phones along with QR codes be considered one of the most productive ways forward in achieving a semi-ubiquitous computing environment. Student survey responses assessing attitudes toward mobile phone and QR code usage are discussed along with the advantages and disadvantages surrounding the implementation of such QR code projects and activities.
