Resources that can be added to the site now?
Fresno plan is clear
Hector is identifying the teachers who are interested in using the local network, he will install the local network in the schools in rural area in Fresno (different schools than we’ve been working with so far)
Tata can then work with the students there
Depends on how many teachers/schools respond and are interested
How can we replicate the experience we had last year?
How do we continue to support the students/schools from last year?
Tata will visit Fresno in Feb
Some of the schools are very remote
Medellin / Platohedro plan is less clear
Fresno plan is taking 90% of the budget - how to continue support in Medellin?
We don’t know how to continue the support to Medellin
Hoping we can figure out a good way to collaborate with them
Don’t want to lose the storytelling piece of the project - not just the technical part
When Tata visits Fresno she can hopefully get a better sense of how to do this.
Liam checked in with our tech team about TIGed being deployed as an offline (LAN based) system. This could be feasible with about a weeks worth of tech time, and some of the features, like google maps would not work without a connection. This is something we have talked about and wanted to do for a while, but isn't ready to go based on the existing system... If there are existing systems that are already working like the RACHEL system I understand being deployed, the path of least resistance may be to proceed with these proven systems VS undertaking a bunch of new tech development to upgrade the existing TIGed system
Draft Work plan is here https://docs.google.com/document/d/1fsfFqtFxdjxT5Md1D7peB55CXcXqPXS77lkIN-cUaU4/edit
SDG toolkit drafting updates
Waterloo global science initiative - Canada-wide SDG strategy conversation focused on how campuses can accelerate work on
Other work reinforcing the SDG work
Possible collaboration with James/UWEZO
B) Water quality Initiatives
Indigenous language revitalization - content being created in Whose Land and Create to Learn
Projects are booting up in the new year Liam is in a phase where he is checking in with the leadership of these TIG programms to explore alignment
Video transcriptions is a piece of the work that needs to be done
Cyber-bullying - what does everyone think? Catalina was interested
Scaling of coding initiatives - not scheduled to proceed after March (grant cycle ends)
Storytelling tool - Sepideh and others at IDRC
Workplan at the moment is more of a brainstorm - need to pare it down based on internal alignment as well as collaboration opportunities across SJRK
It looks like we are going to be focusing on Water issues for the next iteration of Decarbonize / Decolonize - so there may be an opportunity to scale the water testing element more . globally (across the various UNESCO schools / countries involved in the mobilizations this year)
What are the “gaps” in the project now?
