Let’s go around the room and introduce ourselves, our interests and expertise (will help us organize into groups).
Basic Premise of this Course:
The future is already here – it’s just not very evenly distributed.
– William Gibson
A Digital Divide
Let’s go over the Syllabus.
Create a Google Presentation on Google Drive and name it “Design Notebook”.
- Create a slide in your Design Notebook and name it “ICT4Dev Design Context” with today’s date.
- Keeping your response to one slide, consider the two articles above and discuss how the PlayPumps project may have benefitted had it’s donors applied a Donor Funding Charter?
- On another slide, discuss how the application of a Donor Funding Charter might mitigate “unintended consequences” in “complex adaptive systems” as described in Stop Trying to Save the World.
- Be sure to share your Google Presentation and post a link to it as a comment to this blog post below.
*Assignments are due before class begins on Mondays. Be prepared to present your work in class for discussion.
