Workshop: Anti-social Apps
11.00 –12:30 Uhr
Werkhalle Union Gewerbehof
Workshopleiter Joshua Rackstraw
Social apps are making us anti-social! In this workshop we will look at the tools that facebook, twitter, instagram, and other so-called “social” apps use to divide people, dehumanise their users, and draw people away from social experiences. We will look at some of the characteristics of truly social experiences, and how technology can be used to bring us together. Then, we will design and play with some games and toys that have been created to bring people together.
