Girls of Different Abilities in ICTs is a project that will focus on ICT4D (ICTs for development) to empower girls that society labels as disabled which increases marginalization. But as M4C our project will help these girls in ICT training i.e. programming, computer hardware repairs, computer networking and many other ICT careers. Why we say “Different abilities” we believe their inability to walk, talk or see does not make them unable to do many other things like ICTS.
Thanks to Mark Smith (@W4CHL @C3HTech) for his excellent presentation on Podcasting 101 at the August NCT4G meetup and to Mark and the other participants who brought equipment for us to try out. Lots of good info and it was fun! Links to video clips and Mark's materials are listed below.
Playlist There are 5 segments of Mark's presentation (about 13 minutes total) and 3 very short clips of the hands-on part of the meeting.
The trophy pictured here is more than what it seems.
It shows the potential for us as global citizens to share good ideas and practical tools to make the world a better place. Anyone with a 3-D printer and crafty fingers can print off and construct the trophy.
NetSquared Spotlights are a series of interviews focused on the work of our amazing NetSquared Local Organizers around the world. Our local organizers are volunteers dedicated to helping create local opportunities for learning, sharing and using technology to make a difference. Each spotlight we will ask questions that profile our Net2 organizers' approach to community organizing so that others can learn from their experience.
