Be Good Be Social & QR Codes

By now, you’ve arrived at Be Good Be Social and you’re mingling with some of the finest minds in the 3rd sector. Lucky you!

You’ve obviously noticed that we have been doing a little experimental project with QR codes for this event, I know this because you’ve clicked one to get here. I know many people are sceptical of how useful QR codes are to them or their organisation. I reckon this is due to the fact they are still an unknown quantity and we may just need a few ideas to get started.

Below is a list compiled by members of the Be Good Be Social sounding board, demonstrating where QR codes can herald results and highlighting the ideas which are better off left alone!

Alex (@alexdrobertson) and Hugh (@tumshie)  are on hand for any discussion you fancy on using QR codes. Feel free to ask me any questions also. I am no expert, but have been experimenting regularly and I am quite overexcited about QR!

Enjoy the night and the links.
