The class meets weekly over the semester with the goal "to expose participants to a variety of models for mobile and participatory systems."
By the end of the class, we hope to collaboratively create new sociotechnical repertoires for social change and technical activism. In order to foster this creation, we aim to provide participants with overviews of the conceptual, technical, and historical space for mobile technologies in social change.Visit the course description here for a long list of recommended readings.
We will provide an overview of contemporary mobile and participatory technology and techniques, and cross-fertilize that with theory and best practices around social movements.
Thanks to mobileactive.org for the heads-up.
