        QR Codes

Originally designed in Japan for the automotive industry, marketers adopted the barcodes because of their large storage capacity and ability to translate additional information to consumers beyond what packaging could convey.

If a consumer sees a QR code somewhere, they can take out their mobile device, open up a QR code scanner, and "scan" the barcode to gain access to additional information.

        Random Name Picker

You can enter a list of names and have the website randomly choose one.

        Team Maker

Similar to the random name generator, this website allows you to randomly break students into teams.


User created and curated online games where you fill in the blanks in the allotted time. A huge number of subjects and topics covered. User-generated, so you or your students can create your own list.
