title: Presenting at ITP Social Activism using Mobile Technology class
Emily and I had the pleasure of guest lecturing at Nathan Freitas’ Social Activism using Mobile Technology class at NYU’s ITP program. It was a wonderful opportunity that you can read more about below:
The topic of our class was “Grassroots Development – Techniques & Strategies," discussing Digital Democracy‘s experiences doing fieldwork. Before introducing the process by which we developed Handheld Human Rights and the story of developing it in the field, we wanted to have an understanding of how the students have begun to grow their own ideas. Having just completed their midterm assignments, we went around and had each group introduce themselves and their project, touching on these four points:
Who are you and what is your project?
How did you determine the need?
What’s your biggest barrier to success?
- What impact do you hope to achieve?
