The Social Apps Lab at CITRIS Berkeley presents our biggest 2011 event – The Digital We: Apps for Citizenship, Health, and City Life!

The Social Apps Lab focuses on creating mobile applications that use elements of gameplay to motivate citizen learning, civic action, and crowdsourced solutions for social problems. The Digital We examines the premises, prospects, and projects of this kind of social media production through a day of workshops and public discussions.
