h4ckademic jam session: best apps for managing your academic workflows
Thursday, January 31, 4-7pm
Bring a mobile tablet.
h4ckademic, a project of the Harvard Library Lab, is exploring & developing academic workflows using apps on mobile tablets. You’re invited to join a jam session at MIT!
A h4ckademic jam session is a blend of many things–part app-athon, part design squad, part discovery zone–but essentially it’s hanging out to riff on mutual app experiences to create something new & cool. So that’s the idea–bring together students who use tablets and develop cool workflows using apps to get their academic stuff done. Anything from capturing, collecting & organizing electronic academic content to reading, annotating & note-taking.
These jam sessions will surface the best of the best in academic workflows & will contribute to a baseline of options that will be showcased in an online app gallery. The online app gallery will be a tool for new students, new mobile users or anyone who wants to expand their app use to see apps that are being used, how they are being used & what might work best for them.
What will you do at the jam session?
- Meet other tablet users
- See folks demo their academic workflows on their mobile tablets
- Break out in design squads to define, refine, & demo a workflow for inclusion in the online gallery
- Contribute to a tool that will help students across campus
- Eat (yep, dinner’s provided!)
- Have fun!
Can’t make the session, but want to share your h4ck? Use the form to give us a list of the apps you use to manage your academic workflow.
