Picturing our way towards ICT4S

Sketching ICT4S will bring together like-minded practitioners and researchers to co-create a visual, sketched manifesto for sustainability in computing .

Workshop Aims

The workshop aims to:

  1. Discuss the potential contribution of hand-drawn sketching to ICT4S
    • Exercise and discussion to explore the idea that hand-drawn sketching is not just about drawing, when researchers sketch, they talk, they interact and they collaborate. Thus, we aim to answer: What is the significance, benefits and pitfalls of hand-drawn sketching in ICT4S? We will ask attendees to form groups to brainstorm ideas and then compare and contrast the results.
  2. Collaboratively develop a visual library of tools and techniques for sketchnoting the ICT4S conference.
  3. Through a series of exercises, develop the confidence to use sketching in ICT4S
    • Agree on plan for sketchnoting the ICT4S conference
    • Logistics
    • Agreed papers to capture
    • Agreed process of collation, editing and production of Visual ICT4S conference proceedings.

* Learn and practice sketching

* Contribute to an alternative conference proceedings: Visual ICT4S

Hand-drawn sketching is not just about drawing, when researchers sketch, they talk, they interact and they collaborate.

Sketching ICT4S is part of ICT4S 2018 which is held in Toronto May 14-18, 2018. The workshop itself is scheduled for the 14th May.
