Designing an Open-Source Internet Curriculum with Drupal Gardens: Sharing our Dominican Republic Pilot Program experience

claudina sarahe 4 July 2010
Type:  Not planned session

Sharing the results of ThinkDrop's Pilot Program to introduce open-source technology and Drupal to children living in less-advantaged communities, helping them overcome the hurdles that prevent them from openly accessing and sharing information.

June 2010 we took a bold leap as a new company and decided to spend part our summer developing an Open-Source Internet Curriculum. We partnered with COSOLA-MACILE, a non-profit organization focused on K-12 education in less advantaged communities.

In July, we are travelling to Itabo, Dominican Republic to teach 6th-12th grade students and teachers about the Internet, Open-Source technology and Drupal, using Drupal Gardens as the primary teaching tool. The Pilot Program will run for approximately 2-weeks as an after school program open to interested MACILE participants.

Communicating Drupal visually

Heather James 16 June 2010
Type:  Session in official program

Calling all Drupal artists! This is a hands-on workshop. We'll review guidelines for designing visuals for learning. Then we'll create visual representations of fundamental concepts of Drupal.

Session goal: The goal of this session is to create informative visuals to assist in Drupal adoption.

Introduction: There is a presentation renaissance happening, and people are leaving the old tired bullet points behind. But there is a lack of useful visuals for Drupal. If you write documentation for your modules; if you present proposals to potential clients; if you deliver training, you find you need compelling visuals for your ideas.
