Change is a group of faculty, students, and staff at the University of Washington who are exploring the role of information and communication technologies (ICT) in improving the lives of under-served populations, especially in the developing world. Change was started to better frame ICT for Development research in CSE, but is now being extended to bring together everyone at UW who cares about technology in developing regions.
The group hosted a poster session on February 26th in the Atrium. This event brought together ICTD researchers from the CIS, iSchool, HCDE and CSE to share their work and highlighted research on 16 current projects. This kick-off event also launched the group’s new website at http://change.washington.edu/ and its weekly seminar series.
