Hi Paul This sounds like a great initiative WMAU committee isnt aware of any co-ordinated project along these lines the nearest would be https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:WikiTown/Toodyaypedia/stage_II_worksheet which was done as part of the Toodyaypedia project. For some people they might actually like the idea of a QR code to share the person story.
The biggest issue will be getting the followup support they will need I suggest you introduce them to WP:AWNB as place to get quick answers and just to be careful they should be aware of COI . Let us know when your talking and we will be on the watch for new editors.
