Allied Media Projects is involved in four proposals that have been submitted for consideration to the Knight News Challenge. The News Challenge called for ideas that answer the question "How can we strengthen the Internet for free expression and innovation?" We responded with project proposals on community-based technology education, data visualization, and participatory action research.
The Digital Stewards 2014 training program will focus on wireless mesh technology. Wireless mesh networks are local "intranets" that allow neighbors to share Internet connections and develop applications to support community problem-solving. Through this program, you will assess your community’s technology needs and then learn how to facilitate the design, construction, and maintenance of a wireless mesh network in your neighborhood.
AMP recently completed its first full-length Digital Stewards program, a 20-week community technology training designed and implemented in partnership with the Open Technology Institute (OTI) of the New America Foundation.
