Evaluating QR Code Case Studies Using a Mobile Learning Framework

International Conference on Mobile Learning 2014,


The aim of this study was to evaluate the feasibility of Quick Response (QR) codes and mobile devices in the context of Finnish basic education. The feasibility was analyzed through a mobile learning framework, which includes the core characteristics of mobile learning. The study is part of a larger research where the aim is to develop a theoretical framework for mobile learning and mobile learning practices. QR codes were chosen in particular because teachers were interested in seeing how this relatively easy and versatile technology could be utilized in their classrooms. QR code implementations blended in and enriched the traditional teaching methods and classroom learning in a motivating and meaningful way. The core characteristics of mobile leaning were realized comparatively well. However, the study also indicated that the factors that should be added to the framework are the school curriculum, ICT integration strategies, teacher competencies, and technological, social and cultural change.
