want to inspire students to look at how |
they can better the world
through the application of technology,"
As an example of humanitarian computing, I assisted with the award winning Sahana free open source disaster management system. More recently I proposed "Blended Learning for the Indo-Pacific", to deliver low cost micro-credentials via mobile phones (Worthington, 2018). ANU already has a Humanitarian Engineering focus, but not the equivalent for computing. Occasionally I mentor social enterprises in the Innovation ACT competition and tutor humanitarian projects in ANU TechLauncher. Any suggestions as to what or how would be welcome, examples of similar schemes, offers of funding, would be welcome.
I hope to get some ideas from the IEEE Special Interest Group on Humanitarian Technology (SIGHT) Australian workshop, 26 Jun 2020.
