What I did

This class is structured as a lecture tuesday’s from 6-7:45pm and a tech lab thursday’s 6-7:45pm.

This class is the first of a three part series for the Everett Program. Check out their website at everettprogram.org.

  • In the lecture part, I learned what constitutes a informations and communicative technology project for social justice. Through case studies and one page write up’s on the readings I as was able to learn about globalization, info-exclusion, social justice, information revolution, global civil-society networks, social entrepreneurship.
  • In the tech lab part, I took ‘Tech Essentials’. I learned the basic of technology that I should  know today. I learned how to excel,  microsoft office tricks, productivity softwares, and more!

Since learning and going through this program, I  have become a fellow and integral member of the internal tech team. I even have been taken the two chances I have been given to improve ‘Tech Essentials’ tech lab. To see what I did to tech lab click the link here and check out the lab website.
