I had two goals when I created my poster:
- Use text sparingly
- Use QR Codes instead of handouts
I'm really proud of how my poster looks. As a former Graphic Art teacher, I love having the opportunity to play with Adobe InDesign. I tried to play off the colors in the program itself and use the same font as Scratch.
I thought QR Codes would be a great idea, and I had several on my poster. I linked to the following web pages:
This worked for about 60% of the people that stopped by. Either they didn't have a device to read QR codes, didn't know what they were or both. I had about 100 business cards that were gone in like 10 minutes. My goal at ISTE is to come home with the least amount of paper as possible - but that didn't seem to be the standard operating procedure.
All in all I had a great experience presenting a poster at ISTE, and I highly recommend presenting one!
