Description

What happens when an enthusiastic group of humanities grad students are given access to the iPod Touch and provided a good deal of freedom to develop mobile history projects for a public audience? Leslie Madsen-Brooks will discuss the advantages and liabilities of a relatively free-wheeling approach to student development of mobile projects, as well as offer tips for others wishing to tackle student projects of similar autonomy and scale.
