QR Codes are barcodes that can hold a lot of text, not just a number like those on the back of products at the grocery store. You can embed things like an entire paragraph or a weblink. I recommend the following sources for creating QR codes.

You can use a mobile device like a cell phone or an iPod Touch device to read these codes. They make great shortcuts for leading students to online resources. Episode #153 of TechTimes Live, available below, details more about these special barcodes that hail from Japan.
