Twenty Five Technologies to Watch and How
Can our libraries be more open? Can we be more open to our users, our communities, to new technologies? Can we be more open to change? How? Are there technologies that we should be trying and piloting to see if they improve the library’s mandate? Whihc ones are worth investigating? What are the emerging learning technologies? Are there different ways to build community or to attract new community segments? What about books, book clubs and recommending recreational reading? What about some of our other entertainment missions such as video and gaming? Stephen Abram is an inveterate library watcher and strategic technology reviewer. in this session he shares the top 25 technologies that we should think about ‘playing’ with and finding a way to make our libraries more open to our learning communities and neighbourhoods. He’ll end with five suggestions to have fun with change and technology adoption.
