The LearningTimes "Handheld Online Conference" is for museum and education professionals interested in how the new wave of mobile devices and services can benefit their organizations and their learners. Professionals with real-world experience in handheld program design and implementation facilitate this practical one-day online event.

As a completely online conference, this is the greenest, most economical professional development you'll engage in all year.

Stay informed!


Call for proposals on these topics (& others):

Please feel free to add suggestions & propose yourself as a speaker. We're looking for pairs of presenters to present their views in 10-15 minutes each, and then have a conversation with each other and in response to questions from the audience.

  1. Cross-platform content collaborations: museums share content with each others, users, other interesting content producers
  2. Wherever you are... Wayfinding & location-based solutions, GPS, maps, indoor-triggering methods, etc.
  3. Size matters: Solutions for big vs small organizations
  4. Apps: developing with social media; building relationships for pre-, during- & post-visit and with non-visitors; rapid development cycles & 'disposable' solutions vs. future-proofing
  5. Building it in-house vs. out-sourcing
  6. New approaches to mobile content design: soundtracks, soundbytes, and content with hooks...
