And like a cashier scanner, they create shortcuts to all kinds of information.

If you’re not familiar with QR codes, they’re the square looking code like in the logo on this page, or the ones you’ll find with each resource on this site. You scan the code using a QR reader app on a smartphone or tablet, and the code can take you to a web site, like the one on the logo does, or do other things, such as send a text, map an address, have contact information, or contain regular text.
