Out-of-Door Students Tasked with Creating Community App
Instructional Technologist, Mr. Ryan Kinser was contacted by Ms. Phyllis Trettien, co-Founder of the Center for Sustainable and Just Communities (CSJC) in Baltimore, Maryland, after she visited the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s (MIT) website to find assistance in building a mobile app for a community project. Kinser, who is a Master Trainer for MIT in the mobile computing education department, has the skills she believes can help create a mobile app for residents who feel disenfranchised. CSJC works on social justice issues around police misconduct, incarceration, and barriers to reentry.
Senior/Kindergarten Buddies: The Class of 2017 Comes Full Circle on this ODA Tradition
ODA Students Discuss Journey of Dreams with author, Marge Pellegrino via Skype
Easter Seals Visit Opens Eyes
“What will we talk with them about?”
“Do you have questions prepared?”
“I hope my buddy isn’t to quiet or shy.”
These were all worries of Sophomores, who would soon be having their first meeting with their Easter Seals buddy. As we filed into the Student Center nerves were high. Both my partner and I were unprepared for the occasion, like many of our classmates. As other students began to get paired up with the Easter seals I could see the tension slowly seeping from everyone’s faces.
