I participated in the organization of the Social IT Solutions Workshop in Brazil (SITS-Brasil) together with colleagues from the Global Media Technologies & Cultures Lab at MIT. This workshop equipped students who study or do work in the interdisciplinary areas of CS, IT, and technology development, design and implementation at the Federal University of Bahia (UFBA) and the State University of Southwest Bahia (UESB) with interdisciplinary knowledge and skills in the areas of information communication technologies (ICT) for development, digital media, and design learning.
The workshop team included Iago Bojczuk, Diego Cerna Aragon, Han Su, Alan Zhang, and me. We worked under the supervision of Prof. Lisa Parks. Our faculty partners at the host universities (UESB and UFBA) were Cátia Khouri, Maísa Soares, Francisco Barreto, and Paulo Gomes.

This project was funded by the MIT-Brazil Lemann Seed Fund for Collaborative Projects, the Danish Research Council, and the MIT New Media Action Lab.
