Developing Library Staff Skills for Mobile Technology

791

Published on

According to a May 2013 Pew Internet Research study, 91% of American adults have a cell phone, 56% have a smartphone, and 34% own a tablet computer. These mobile users visit your library and expect your staff to understand how to use their mobile devices. This session will help library administrators and trainers find and implement the best methods and ways of training their staff in order to keep them up-to-date and comfortable using a variety of mobile technologies while brainstorming practical workshop ideas like BYOD (Bring Your Own Device[s]) that actually work!

  6. 6. What to consider? • Develop a strategic plan that is aligned with your library’s long-term goals. • Determine what kind of training is needed. • Let staff determine and communicate the training they want/need. • Ask patrons to help determine and communicate the training they want/need. • In-house training or outsourced? • Who will oversee the training program? • How will you measure success?

  8. 8. Some edited comments I sat down with each staff member for two sessions: eReaders one day and tablets the next. We have "How To" handouts for each device and I just walked them through the process on each device. We sourced our staff for people who had or knew the devices and made handouts, built staff training modules. We also maintain a couple of pages on the staff wiki with troubleshooting and update information.

  11. 11. Edited Comments Continued … I work at a public library and I am the trainer (official title is instructional designer - not a manager). We are moving toward a system where several staff members take on some training responsibilities (sort of a mentor system). We do occasionally bring in an outside expert on something. What we do with new technologies like mobile devices is order a few for each department and let them try it out and play with it for a bit (they can even take them home), I provide some training resources/handouts, and then if they still need more help I sit down with them individually or as a group. I also do survey staff on their needs every few months. We have a staff development committee that I'm on, too, chaired by the associate director that sort of drives the whole plan (in line with our library's strategic plan).

  21. 21. Report: Kindle Fire Surpasses iPad as Most Popular E-Reading Tablet for Kids Source: http://goo.gl/bcvQOf • 27% of children who read digitally do so primarily on a Kindle Fire versus 20% who do so on an iPad. • 84% of e-reading children now have access to tablets, up from 72% in January 2013. • Other findings from the report: – Parents will pay a premium for educational digital content. – Parents most likely search by age group and then subject area. – Laptops/desktop computers are still the most popular (22% of in- classroom digital reading).
