Over the last several years we have utilized a networked anthropology approach with several technology tools as a form of community engagement through partners such as the National Park Service and various community groups and non-profits in the Baltimore region. Out of several media methods, the creation of mobile app prototypes has proven to be a highly successful tool to create critical conversations between disparate community members and institutional partners such as universities and non-profits. In this workshop, we will demonstrate how to utilize both analog and digital tools for mobile app prototyping as a community engagement strategy for faculty and other practitioners using projects created in Baltimore between Towson University faculty and our collaborators. We highly recommend attendance by conference attendees who are present with their community partners to take an actionable tool into their work together.
