School Library Journal mentions Ubimark Books, created by the author of this blog, as a digital innovator.
QR codes are still somewhat novel in this country, but in Japan they’re already a tried- and-true method for sharing data. Widespread smartphone adoption in this country has made QR code access more commonly possible.
So what’s being done with the technology? The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is proposing a new car label that incorporates a QR code with fuel economy information, comparing the scanned car against other models. Ubimark Books is using QR codes, as well. Its enhanced version of Around the World in 80 Days, for example, contains QR codes directing readers to online audio, video, maps, and other interactive features.
