Description

Annenberg Research Park Colloquium Series:

Presentation by François Bar, Annenberg School for Communication, on November 11th @ 11am.

Mobile Voices: A Mobile, Open Source, Popular Communication Platform for First-Generation Immigrants in Los Angeles

“Mobile Voices” is a storytelling platform for immigrants in Los Angeles to create and publish stories about their community directly from cell phones.
This project seeks to enable first-generation, low-wage immigrants to participate meaningfully and confidently in the digital realm. Mobile Voices is a collaboration between faculty and students at the Annenberg School for Communication at the University of Southern California and members of the Institute of Popular Education of Southern California (IDEPSCA), a nonprofit serving low-income Latino immigrants in Los Angeles. This presentation will give an overview of the project to date, beginning with the initial motivation for Mobile Voices and then focusing on key components of the project: technology development; participatory approach to design, implementation, and evaluation; and scalability.

François Bar is Associate Professor of Communication in the Annenberg School for Communication at the University of Southern California. He is a steering committee member of the Annenberg Research Network on International Communication (http://arnic.info.) His research and teaching focus on the social and economic impacts of information technologies, with a concentration on telecommunication policy, user-driven innovation and technology appropriation. His most recent work examines the impact of information technology for development, in places ranging from East Africa to Latin America. He is co-Editor of Information Technologies and International Development (ITID).
