TechCamp Ramallah: How to use mobile storytelling games to promote tourism & cultural awareness in Palestine

1,407 views

Published on

During #TechCamp Ramallah, the workgroup which Ayman Awartani and I (Josephine Dorado) led, addressed issues around promoting Palestine’s culture and history to the outside world and how to bring in tourism while representing the true story of Palestine. We focused on how to use mobile storytelling to promote tourism and represent Palestine culturally and historically to locals and foreigners. By the end of Day 2, we created a prototype: Go-N-Ramallah, a mobile storytelling game that promotes tourism & cultural awareness in Ramallah. TechCamp Ramallah 2013 was held on 27-29 August 2013 in Ramallah, Palestine.

TechCamp is a program under the U.S. State Department’s Civil Society 2.0 initiative that connects civil society organizations (CSOs) across the globe with new and emerging technology resources to solve real world challenges and build digital capacity.
