Here at COCo, our Commun-IT program is constantly engaged in how to transfer the skills we have around technology and media to the community groups we work with. It is a clear truth of our work that “having a particular skill doesn’t necessarily mean you are equipped to teach it to others”- which is why we are thrilled to hear about the launch of the Teaching Community Technology Handbook from the Detroit Community Technology Project. The handbook integrates the teaching of popular education greats like Paolo Freire, Grace Lee Boggs, and Susan Morris. It includes activity guides, and engages with the history of literacy organizing and the digital divide that faces so many of our communities.
