Energized Textbooks (ETB):

Energized textbooks leverage QR codes to link the created digital content with the existing textbooks. Different resources can also be linked to textbooks via QR codes.

Quick Response (QR) Code is a machine-readable code consisting of an array of black and white squares, typically used for storing web-links or other information for reading by the camera on a smart-phone. A QR code is used to log into websites/ weblinks.

Many paid or free mobile apps are available with the ability to scan the codes and which will redirect to an URL. Eg.

  • DIKSHA App
  • Cam Scanner.

 

Importance

Textbooks would have to be “energized”, carrying a QR code which would allow the students/teachers to access additional resource material to understand the lesson/chapter.

“Energized Textbooks”, carrying a QR code would allow the students to learn an additional language (Hindi, English etc.) as QR Code will be linked to Audio, Video, Text material developed in different languages/mediums.

QR code saves time and effort of the user as a user will not have to type a URL manually.

Content residing behind the QR code can be modified or substituted at any time

QR code incorporated textbook will be helpful for engaging students in an indirect way of acquiring knowledge of the lessons of textbooks instead of wasting their valuable time in searching other web links.

Teachers will be able to upgrade themselves to digital teaching methods.
