Tech in the Commons 2018: Smart Cities Project Night
YOU MUST COMPLETE YOUR REGISTRATION HERE (Free tickets). ( Tech in the Commons returns to offer nonprofits training opportunities in audience engagement. Recognizing a need to help place-based nonprofits better engage their communities, The John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, Comcast NBCUniversal and social impact news organization are bringing back Tech in the Commons for a second year. The event and reporting bootcamp series aimed at introducing mission orgs to best practices in better connecting with audiences was piloted in 2017. Following overwhelming attendee demand, the program is being returned with crucial additions. Like last year, Tech in the Commons will feature four events focused on new engagement techniques including: augmented reality, data storytelling, social media for action and smart cities. New this year will be two project nights for attendees to work with subject matter experts to launch work based on what they learned. There will also be a badge-style certification program so attendees can validate what they learned. The series will launch during the 8th annual Philly Tech Week Presented by Comcast, the region’s largest annual celebration of innovation, and run as a bootcamp over consecutive weeks. It will be free to attend. __________________________________________________________________________________ The events will take place on the following dates: PROJECT NIGHTS: Wednesday, May 30 (5-8pm): Smart Cities Project Night with support from the City of Philadelphia Tuesday, June 5 (5-8pm): Data Storytelling Project Night with support from Code for Philly
