There are times when you make a discovery too late, this is what I felt when I found the 'Teaching Community Technology Handbook'. If only I had this when I started working in Community Education, it is too late for me by quite a few years but perhaps not for you and anyway experienced community educators can still learn new tricks or be reminded of things they have forgotten.The handbook has been produced by the Detroit Community Technology Project. It was commissioned by New America’s Resilient Communities in partnership with New York Economic Development Corporation’s RISE NYC Program.
This 100+ page handbook will take you through the history of popular education while offering a step-by-step guide to developing community rooted technology workshops and curricula. Community Technology focuses on teaching strategies that make learning technology accessible and relevant. We believe sharing these teaching practices has the potential to diversify and shape technology fields to be community-oriented. The handbook introduces Community Technology as a series of educational practices. The more people know about the technology around them, the more they will be able to participate in shaping their environment..
