Who can do this with default capabilities?

Access Your Pupil's QR Codes

Every pupil on Freckle has a QR code. You can access them by doing the following:

  1. Sign in to your teacher account at classroom.freckle.com.
  2. Select Class List in the left navigation bar.
  3. Use the Jump to Class drop-down list to select one of your classes.
  4. On the screen for that class, select Print login cards.

  5. Your login cards have your pupil's QR codes. Print them out to use them.

Signing In with a QR Code

  1. Go to student.freckle.com and select the QR code button at the bottom.

  2. If you have not enabled your webcam on your Chromebook or other computer, you will need to do that first. If you are on an iPad, you will not need to do this step. Instead, you will be asked to open your camera.



    Each browser looks a little different but in general, you will need to select Allow when it appears near the top of the page.

    If you are having trouble with your webcam, scroll down to learn how to enable it.
  3. Hold your QR code up to the camera.

    If your have pupil passwords enabled, you will be prompted to enter your pupil password.
