Michael Sean Gallagher will be the facilitator for the ICT4D specialized week (http://mobimooc.wikispaces.com/Mobiles+and+Development) that is one of the concurrent sessions in MobiMOOC (free, open, online course on mLearning). The ICT4D topic will run from 23 - 29 September 2012. During that week everyone is invited to discuss her/his experiences on ICT4D or share future plans. That way we all can learn from our past failures and successes with setting up ICT4D projects. For those wanting to draw up a mLearning project, there will be the possibility of winning an award (contest open to all MobiMOOC’rs, more on that later).
Michael will be joined by experts speakers from Cambodia and Mali, which makes the experience even more thrilling (or at least that is how I feel).
Although any MobiMOOC participant is free to engage, lurk, participate… in any way they seem fit (learning can have different forms), Michael did draw up potential learning activities for those who want to. You can have a look at the preliminary actions and topics related to ICT4D on the (work in progress) ICT4Dpage which is part of MobiMOOC’s course wiki.
Michael is a globetrotter who has worked and lived in 4 different continents (N-America, Europe, Asia and Africa) and all the time with heart and a warm soul. You can view more about him at his website (http://michaelseangallagher.org/ ).
