Participatory Learning Workshops

Peter Day wrote in a comment

Participatory Learning Workshops (PLWs) relate to the community ecology in which particpants live, work and/or are active in. Particpants chose, through previous dialogue - usually some form of needs assessment and asset mapping - which technologies they wish to engage with initially. Workshops, which can be static (e.g. based in an ICT suite); mobile (using portable/mobile technologies); or scenario-based (participants collaborate in order to address a particular need - preferably identified by the community themselves), provide facilitated 'training' in which participants start to engage with their chosen technologies. Space is then provided for participants to reflect on what they've learnt and discuss how this might be applied within their own community contexts.
