Tech Club - Summer '08

Tech Club will be having a fun time this summer getting into digital photography, manipulating the photos via Photoshop and then (if we have time) creating some Flash animation using your altered photos. It's an ambitious mix of creativity and technology, but I think we're up to the challenge!

Details will follow in later posts, but stop by Tuesday nights (6p-7p) so you can be a part of it!

New Volunteers. Strategic Planning

As we enter the summer we're trying to recruit new volunteers to serve as project managers for tech club and the video club.

These clubs are part of an overall technology strategy for Cabrini Connections, Tutor/Mentor Connection. You can review the strategy on our technology wiki.

We'd like to find volunteers who will set up a wiki or other form of collaborative planning group for the tech club, and for the video group, so that this can be a central meeting place, history, and planning location for volunteers and students who don't have much time to meet face to face.

Tech club volunteers are meeting on Tuesday evening. IYP does not have a specific meeting date/time but we do have one group finishing up a documentary of Cabrini Green and another volunteer building an library of past videos.

If you're interested in being part of this, just email
