Community Tech Workshops

Community Service

Project Description:
A SU School of Information Studies course, Technology as Public Good, prepare students on how to take a positive role in public technology initiatives. SU students provide South Side residents with the knowledge and skills to tap into the resources of the Internet via community workshops. The first community workshops took place in 2009 and provided information on how to use the Internet to gain information on health and wellness. This year the workshops will focus on community economic development and wireless technology business opportunities.
