Ideas for joinin sessions

We have started the to think about the possible options and have 7 draft session titles and general themes to date. These aren’t in any particular order with the exception of the first one on smartphones and tablets. This session should help introduce joinin participants to the technology that will be used in subsequent sessions and encourage participants to bring along their own technology to use.
Below are the draft titles and thoughts/ideas behind the 7 sessions:
  • joinin: Smartphones and Tablets – this session will introduce a range of devices (an iPad mini, an Android tablet and a Windows Surface as well as encouraging participants to bring along their own smartphones and tablets), signing up for Eduroam, adding email accounts, taking pictures, using the on-screen keyboard etc.
  • joinin: Social Media  – this session will introduce a range of popular social media sites (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest etc) and will then allow participants to explore these sites and decide if they wish to sign up for them.
  • joinin: Messaging – introduce a range of messaging systems available on smartphones, tablets and computers (Skype, FaceTime, Whatsapp, Snapchat, Firechat).
  • joinin: Augmented Reality  – looking at QR codes, Blippar, Aurasma and potentially Oculus Rift.
  • joinin: Wearables – looking at a range of wearable smart devices, possibilities include Jawbone, Fitbit, Nike Plus, Google glass, Puzzlebox Orbit helicopter and MindWave as well as looking at associated websites/apps such as Strava and MyFitnessPal.
  •  joinin: Gaming – looking at popular gaming technology such as PS4, Oculus Rift and Minecraft
  • joinin: Video  – looking at creating videos on smartphones and tablets using Vine or iMovie

At this stage we are exploring these different session ideas and will look to finalise a definitive list of at least 4 sessions in the next month or so.
