Add Augmented Reality to your design portfolio in 2019
52 Limited

Description

Worldwide, there are now over a billion mobile devices with augmented reality capabilities. Augmented reality (AR) apps let people see and interact with digital content in their physical reality. Apple, Facebook, and Snapchat have pioneered early techniques and technologies to insert digital images (and interactions) on top of real-world objects, but the possibilities of these channels remain relatively unexplored.

We’re at an inflection point for user experience and interaction design. Whether or not we’ve planned for it, we’re all 3D designers now. It’s the perfect time to extend your design skills into this new reality.

Jessica Outlaw of The Extended Mind, in partnership with Torch AR is offering a half-day workshop for designers and design producers. In this hands-on training, you will develop an understanding of immersive tech, interaction design in 3D space, and existing AR use cases. During the workshop, you’ll concept, plan, and build your own AR experience prototype.

*No augmented reality experience or coding is needed. Space is limited. Details:

Welcome 8:30 AM Workshop 9:00 AM - 12:30 PM

Part 1: The state of the immersive technology today. You will demo mobile AR technology and learn about the range of use cases.

Part 2: Techniques for AR interaction design. We will compare and contrast 2D & 3D design patterns.

Part 3: Designing with Mobile AR. You will design and develop an interactive AR experience prototype for your portfolio.

Portland Community Design Thinkers - Join a Team for IDEO.org'­s 9-Week Course for Human-Centered Design
Portland

In May, IDEO.org and +Acumen will once again be offering their highly regarded free 9-week online course, Design Kit: Course for Human-Centered Design. As we do regularly, Portland Community Design Thinkers will be hosting a special meetup on May 6, where we'll explain what the course is about and what you can expect from it. And for those interested in participating, we'll help you form teams of local colleagues with whom you can work, which we've found vastly improves both completion rates and the experience as a whole.

Created by IDEO.org for those who are relatively new to design thinking, +Acumen's free Design Kit: Course for Human-Centered Design is probably one of the best and most immersive resources anywhere for getting up to speed on the nuts and bolts of HCD. This meetup is specifically for those interested in learning more about the course and helping to form working teams. Please note PCDT is not managing this course -- you'll be on your own for that. But we're keen to give anyone interested a leg up in getting off to the best possible start with a group of other eager local participants, and you're welcome to use our own Slack channel for course communication and organizing, as many groups have previously done.

Read more about the course at the below link.

In brief, it's a nine-week online FREE curriculum that will introduce participants to the concepts of human-centered design and how this approach can be used to create innovative, effective, and sustainable solutions.

During those nine weeks, you'll work online (and off) with a group of 2-6 people, learning the HCD process by applying it to one of three pre-crafted real world design challenges. (You'll also have a choice to craft your own challenge.) Each week you will explore the fundamental concepts through readings, case studies, and short videos. Then you'll meet in-person with your design team to get your hands dirty practicing the relevant human-centered design methods.

Let's get as many teams together as we can for the next course! Read more at this link: http://www.plusacumen.org/courses/introduction-human-centered-design

Portland Community Design Thinkers - Parenting in the Age of Digital Technology: A Humane Tech Meetup
Portland

In January, Portland Community Design Thinkers gathered to examine how mobile devices and apps are designed to hijack our attention in ways that are not aligned with users’ best interests but, rather, mainly with the interests of advertisers. In that session, we explored how “engagement,” the chief currency of Silicon Valley, has become inextricably linked with the hidden design practices that prioritize user time on platform above all other considerations.

Managing our own ability to ignore these digital distractions is difficult enough; but it becomes vastly more difficult when we must do so for our children as well, who are growing up in a world in which these device mediate nearly every aspect of their social, psychological (and, increasingly, their educational) lives. How do parents and families take back control of their homes -- and their children's futures -- from the Silicon Valley tech giants whose primary concern is maximizing "time on platform" and delivering users' eyeballs to advertisers? There is so much at stake. Cyber bullying, inappropriate texts, social anxiety, depression, ubiquitous porn, and screen addictions are just a few of the issues that might affect our children.

There are certainly benefits to using mobile devices. But how can parents and young children assure they remain the masters of these devices rather than servants to them? How do parents assure they are leading by example to create tech-healthy families?

On May 21, we'll reconvene to consider just these questions. We'll be joined by two Portland subject matter experts, both of whom provide counseling, workshops and proven strategies for parents to help children manage screen time and find balance in the digital age.

Richard Halpern is a Portland-based Parent Educator and Counselor, and the founder of Coach4Parents, providing workshops and parenting strategy sessions to help manage screen time, and to reduce screen dependence, for kids of all ages.

Andrea Davis and her husband, Tyler, are the parents of five kids. Together, they've created BetterScreenTime, a resource for any parent who believes screen time can be a positive experience and who wants to prepare their children for that privilege in the best way possible. It’s for the parent who knows screen time will never be perfect, but believes it can be better.

Join us on May 21 for an interactive discussion. As always, we'll have food and drink on hand from our sponsor, LUMA Institute, some door prize giveaways, and some networking and socializing time prior to and after the presentation.
