Display work with more indepth coverage that cannot be displayed on wall eg: Wall displays topic of Streamlife. QR code directs to a Youtube clip showing your class visit to stream

Report Cards: QR codes lead to online work or video of child to give example of work over year

Te Reo and other Languages: items around the classroom could have a code on them which links to someone saying the item in Te Reo or other language. EG: a chair could have a code on it, when the child scans they can hear "turu" pronounced correctly.

New Entrant Teachers could have card with photo name and video to give out on Kindy visits or Introduction to School nights. QR code can allow parents to "hear" from you by linking to a video of new entrant teacher sharing their love for new entrants and goals in leading them into school etc etc. Can help familiarise parents and help them connect. Also allows parents to do this in discretion of home.
