Ray Matthews at the State Library showed me this link: http://www.utah.gov/connect/mobile.html
with apps by/for UTAH agencies. There you can find the Utah Students Guide. Driver License Practice Test, Powerschool for Parents, and UtahFutures. Of course you can search the App Store but sometimes it is difficult to find the app without the correct name.

How about a listserv discussion of which library related Apps are available for mobile devices and how best to advertise those Apps. Which ones products, platforms and programs that you support and use here in Utah schools are App driven?

Do you have 4 minutes? I encourage you to look at this video that summarizes the 2012 Horizon Report by the New Media Consortium. The "Project examines emerging technologies for their potential impact on and use in teaching, learning, and creative expression within the environment of pre-college education." I am pretty sure you will want to read more after watching the video!


Six Technologies to watch:
- Mobile Devices & Apps (near-term horizon)
- Tablet Computing (near-term horizon)
- Game-Based Learning (mid-term horizon, 2-3 years away)
- Personal Learning Environments (mid-term horizon, 2-3 years away)
- Augmented Reality (far-term horizon, 4-5 years away)
- Natural User Interfaces (far-term horizon, 4-5 years away)
