The Youth Participation Team here in West Sussex has continued to look at how we can maximise Social Media. To this end we are researching whether using Quick Response (QR) codes encourages young people to sign up and get involved in our youth e-panels.
West Sussex Youth Support and Development Service (YSDS) recently worked with the voluntary sector publicising youth services at the South of England Show . They had a very good response and you can see Prince Edward chatting to a group of the young people here.
We seem to be getting a good response to the codes and are currently exploring how else we might use these to publicise our services. I was wondering if anyone else out there had any experience of using QR Codes or suggestions / thoughts on how else we might maximise this sort of technology?
