This weeks theme is tech stewardship and the quote of the week is:
“Technology stewards are people with enough experience of the workings of a community to understand its technology needs, and enough experience with technology to take leadership in addressing those needs.”
Which means that the technology stewards need to be versatile. He or she doesn’t need to be the computer expert but needs to be the person that understands the community in a way that he or she can fulfill the communities technology needs and needs to know enough about technology to support and address those needs.
An important tool to portray the weak and strengths of a community is the spider graph. The spider graph uses a point system and connects the points to make a weird shape, in this shape you can notice what strengths and weaknesses are. You can make multiple spider graphs to compare them to each other.
We made 2 spider graphs of our NGO, one is about the NGO write now and the other is about what we think the NGO needs to become. We compared them and looked at the differences and talked about the way we could get there.
The other thing we did was making a concept for the video presentation. The product managers came together and presented their ideas, and we discussed the ideas and approved them. The product managers made a little teaser of their idea.
This was also the week the NGO leader Françios would come and give a little presentation and we got the chance to ask some questions.
I think this week went better than last week, last week we were kind of stuck. This week we managed to make sense out of it all and we’re going in the right direction.
