Abstract:

Many have the desire to learn, expand, grow, and challenge themselves through accessing technology. This presentation explores how youth in communities around the world find their voice, test their agency, and become full participants in the world through the use of VoiceThread, a technology for collaborative conversation and engagement using text, audio, video, or doodles. This program will be piloted in a Nepali telecenter managed by youth, a Guatemalan slum with an after school educational reinforcement program, a Batswana youth peer educator group learning how to combat HIV/AIDS, and an American middle school with youth investigating global cultures.

This presentation will focus on:
• a comparison between the four diverse communities, specifically how each community employs ProLiteracy’s approach of “Literacy for Social Change.”
• a deep analysis of VoiceThread, focusing on the success and challenges of using this ICT.
• learning theories, including social learning theory, informal learning theories, and concepts of Legitimate Peripheral Participation. (Lave & Wenger)

The creative and innovative programs that bring technologies to developing countries have continuously challenged the communities to utilize ICT for positive change and sustainability. VoiceThread technology has proven to help liberate low income and non-literate people through voice interactions. This presentation outlines the use of VoiceThread in four communities around the world.
