==Description==
 
==Description==
This class is designed for media students who are interested in an introduction about how the digital media are present in the urban spaces, and how it can be related to cultural heritage content, through mobile devices gadgets. Nowadays, technology is present on most part of people’s daily life. Digital equipment belongs to the people’s routine and they are increasingly amalgamated to the daily activities and are integrated in a way such that perceptions of technology are, somehow, decreasing.

This course is designed for media students who are interested in an introduction about how the mobile media are present in our society, and how it interacts with public urban spaces, and how it can be related to cultural heritage content, through mobile devices gadgets.  
If the technology can bring the world in a small scale of a mobile screen by enhancing the museums and galleries possibilities, the portable technology can also add elements to the real world, changing the perception of urban spaces and its cultural heritage content. There are no more limitations about space, neither about the opening hours to provide to the visitors a complete and empowered cultural experience. Mostly, the already developed applications and games using mobile devices to interact with urban spaces are dealing with tangible elements of the culture. A mobile App could also work for intangible and tangible elements, in order to enhance the knowledge regarding it, specially applied for UNESCO’s World Heritage places in Weimar.
 
This class is an invitation to theoretical and practical perspectives to observe digital media and in urban scenarios, addressed for cultural purposes. It is a methodological and creative approach to analyze the mobile media role for cultural heritage.
 
  
'''<nowiki>IMPORTANT:</nowiki>''' You '''don't''' need previous knowledge in Android, iOS or even any type of programming skills. This class is more focused on the design and navigation aspects.

Description

This course is designed for media students who are interested in an introduction about how the mobile media are present in our society, and how it interacts with public urban spaces, and how it can be related to cultural heritage content, through mobile devices gadgets.

Nowadays, mobile technology is present on most part of people’s daily life and belongs to the people’s routine.

If the technology can bring the world in a small scale of a mobile screen by enhancing the museums and galleries possibilities, the portable technology can also add elements to the real world, changing the perception of urban spaces and its cultural heritage content. There are no more limitations about space, neither about the opening hours to provide to the visitors a complete and empowered cultural experience.

A mobile App could also work for ICT for tourism, and Weimar is a perfect applied scenario to develop touristic apps, dealing with UNESCO’s World Heritage places in Weimar.

This course also has an important practical part, where the students will learn Mobile Interface guidelines, developing a mock-up app prototype for UNESCO's World Heritage Sites in Weimar.

This course is an invitation to theoretical and practical perspectives to observe mobile media and in urban scenarios, addressed for cultural purposes. It is a methodological and creative approach to analyze the mobile media role for cultural heritage.

IMPORTANT: You don't need previous knowledge in Android, iOS or even any type of programming skills. This class is more focused on the design and navigation aspects.
