A public high school teacher in Cavite has come up with a new way to make use of today’s technology in classroom activities.

Michael Angelo C. Maleriado, a teacher in General Emilio Aguinaldo National High School in Imus, Cavite, scans QR codes to check his students’ attendance before they enter the classroom.

Michael shared his unique way of checking attendance through a Facebook post, last June 25.

The post went viral instantly, with the total count of shares up to 14,000 as of July 2.

In his post, Michael explained the process behind the QR code scanning. First, a mobile app will have to be installed which will be recording the attendance through the QR codes.

Then, a QR code is created for each student which will include their names and their sections. After the end of the class, the list of students who attended can be exported from the mobile app into an Excel file.

Michael emphasized that the QR codes can be an easier and paperless way of checking attendance. Take notes, DepEd!
