Workshop format (09:00 - 15:00 CEST)

The aim of this workshop is to share current research and practice and to initiate a joint design of creative mobile learning scenarios, sociotechnical-didactical designs or applications.

The workshop is composed of the morning inspiration eventduring which innovative ideas to fostering creative mobile learning will be presented in the Pecha Kucha format to ignite creative thinking and inspire the collaborative development during the afternoon session. The Pecha Kucha event is based on a simple idea: each presenter presents 20 slides - 20 seconds each (approx. 6' 40" in total). It is a creative presentation format that enhances sharing of multiple ideas and gives more presenters the chance to share their research.

During the afternoon creative design session, the joint creative design of creative mobile learning will be supported by workshop organisers utilizing a mix of different creativity techniques in combination with mobile media. The inputs from the Pecha Kutcha session will be used to inspire work in small groups aiming at designing creative mobile learning. Group work will include brainstorming and storyboarding as creativity techniques, which will be supported by mobile media, i.e. (a) the Socrative app for mobile generation of creative ideas based on the spring-boarding technique, (b) MindMeister for collaborative, mobile mind mapping, and (c) Evernote for documenting collaborative story boarding with white boards. Participants of the workshop should bring their laptops and smart phones to be able to participate in interactive workshop activities. The workshop takes place on Wednesday, 19thSeptember, 2012 from 09:00 am till 15:00 (6 hrs in total including 1 hr lunch break). The organization of the workshop is summarized in the table below:
