Your ideas solve problems
Hello!
Today we’re going to
generate ways
technology can help
make the world better.
First, think of an
issue you care about
and know about.
Now, answer one or more of
these statements:
• We need more X in this area.
• I need people to understand X in this

area....
Now the theory.
There are issues.

And there are problems.

We can’t confuse the two.
Technology can illuminate issues.

Net2local hackathon idea generator from Caravan Studios

726 views

Published on

A Generator is a facilitated group session designed to surface moments where technology can be helpful. This process is used to inform hackathon projects with ideas for social good. NetSquared organizers can facilitate Generators to surface community needs to TechSoup's Caravan Studios where ideas are shaped into tools communities can use. Generators can be facilitated without any training or extensive preparation--there are hidden slides (viewable once you download the presentation) that walk you through the process.
