Mobile devices have truly brought the age of ‘personal’ to personal computing with new interfaces, personalization and interaction within the content experience. This workshop will focus on how news organizations can leverage the new technologies to embrace, optimize and innovate in the space. We’ll review the current trends and research, look forward into the future and review how you should plan your mobile product strategies, as well as offer hands-on training for touch-focused, interactive design and also create real code examples. The session will be broken into three modules:
WHAT WE KNOW NOW, WHAT THE FUTURE IS LOOKING LIKE
Mobile and tablet best practices, research and future trends
The mobile market is constantly shifting quarter to quarter. We’ll review the most recent data from Nielsen, Pew, Poynter and other research organizations tracking the industry to give a clear picture of the current landscape and how growth may shape the future.
