Visioning meeting

Yesterday we held a visioning meeting for the ECC Connected! project and generated the curriculum schedule, overall plan, basic budget and objectives which are:

a. Train 10 trainers and 3 Digital Scribes (D-Scribes)

b. Trainers will train up to 30 seniors and 15 youth

c. Connect to at least one legislative issue

d. Structure the project to serve as a seed for larger ECC program goals

e. Connect project to newly elected mayoral administration

The proposal will be submitted in the next day or so and we hope for quick approval so that we may begin development.

I’m looking forward to using the project management tool Jot. I’ve used basecamp and want to compare them.

Getting started

A group of us has gathered to start a community technology project we’re calling ECC Connected!

With the help of BrainJams, the Social Media Club my colleague Scott of SeniorNet and I will offer a series of trainings to the participants of the Eastmont Computing Center.

 The hope is that the folks will find these tools fun and useful in getting their message across, especially to civic leaders.

The team has had three meetings and a proposal is being finalized for funding from the Community Technology Foundation of California (CTFC).

 This space will serve as a record of the development of the project.
