Talks and tweets from #MindfulTech19

The MmIT Committee were delighted to welcome over forty group members and others from the library and information community to Cilip HQ on 9 January 2019.  We heard four excellent speakers who guided and provoked us to consider the topics of mindful technology and how to beat digital distraction.

While some delegates avoided the “digital distraction” of Twitter during the afternoon, the tweets from #MindfulTech19  indicate that delegates (and Twitter followers) found plenty to share!  Val Skelton wrote up an excellent overview of the event in her article Mindful tech – looking for new ways to engage with tech, work and nature.

All four speakers have kindly added their presentations to the MmIT Slideshare account:

The event also included the MmIT AGM for 2019.  Andy Tattersall stepped down after two years as Chair and the new MmIT Officers are:

  • Alison McNab (Chair)
  • Debbie Morris (Secretary)
  • Amina Choudhury (Treasurer)
