ICT Oriented Toward Nyaya: Community Computing in India’s Slums - Masters and PhDs

ICT Oriented Toward Nyaya: Community Computing in India’s Slums - Masters and PhDs | India OER & teacher education | Scoop.it

This article’s purpose is to describe and report on ICT program interventions that target young people living in India’s slums. Specifically, the article examines a case study of a grassroots effort, called the community computing model, in Bangalore, India. Using Amartya Sen’s work on nyaya and Paulo Freire’s work on concientization, the article explains how this model of community computing infused and developed a social justice oriented and deeper “critical consciousness” of the slum community where this computer center was situated.


Via Stewart-Marshall
Leigh-Anne Perryman's insight:

Good to see Amartya Sen and Paulo Freire featured in this article.
