Reprogramming Urban Ecologies Through Youth-Made Apps

Image

Tomorrow I will be presenting at the Digital Media and Learning Conference on a panel that includes my collaborators from Forage City. We will be discussing the Forage Oakland/ Youth Radio ‘Mobile App Lab’ collaboration, and more broadly, youth-made mobile apps, and their potential to ‘reprogram urban ecologies. Below is information about the conference (from the conference website).

About the Conference

The Digital Media and Learning Conference is an annual event supported by the MacArthur Foundation and organized by the Digital Media and Learning Research Hub located at the UC Humanities Research Institute, University of California, Irvine. The conference is meant to be an inclusive, international and annual gathering of scholars and practitioners in the field, focused on fostering interdisciplinary and participatory dialog and linking theory, empirical study, policy, and practice. The third annual conference – DML2012 – is organized around the theme “Beyond Educational Technology: Learning Innovations in a Connected World” and will be held between March 1-3, 2012 in San Francisco, California.
