Recently I wrote a technical report for ALA called
. Published in April of 2016, it focuses on three trends: Mobile Learning Trends: Accessibility, Ecosystems, Content Creation
Natural user interfaces and accessibility
Content creation with mobile devices.
There are synergies between these trends that offer opportunities for those who care about access for all. This report includes ideas for how libraries can use this information to empower their users, and resources for learning more.
The move to mobile is empowering for all types of users, from toddlers to the elderly. It’s also
great for people with various types of disabilities — which could be anyone at different times in their lives.
Over on the

(Katie Day on Flickr). Simmons UNBOUND blog, I have a guest post: Apps for Content Creation. In it, I discuss why libraries are helping their users create, and describe 15 apps for content creation.
