The Fourth International m-libraries Conference schedule

Monday 24th September 2012

  • Mobile Imaginations Workshop

    by Ben Showers

    Let your imagination run free and dream up new ideas for mobile services.
    The Mobile Imaginations workshop is an opportunity to collaborate with other librarians and developers to come up with transformative new ideas for mobile technology in libraries. No technical knowledge is required, simply lots of ideas and innovative approaches.

    The workshop will provide a space for collaboratively brainstorming new ideas in small groups and developing some initial designs. There will also be a number of short ‘drop-in’ sessions on topics including paper prototyping and perfecting your pitch.
    Ideas can then be refined and prototyped throughout the conference in the imaginations strand with ideas and prototypes presented to the whole conference on day two.

    The Mobile Imaginations workshop will provide an opportunity for:
    • Innovative ideas to blossom and be explored, whether these are for new services, apps or technologies;
    • The design and paper prototype new services and/or products ;
    • The presentation of ideas and designs to the conference delegates, with a prize for the best ideas.
