Advancing Computer Skills for Burmese Refugees in Worcester Public
Downloadable Contentopen in viewer
The goals of our project were to develop a computer literacy program for the youth of the Worcester Refugee Assistance Project (WRAP) to help them assimilate and prepare for college and future employment, and to create a website for the youth that they use to share their interests, ideas, stories, and culture. To realize these goals, we performed background research and repeatedly visited WRAP to interact with and learn from the youth and volunteers there. We assessed the computer literacy levels of the youth to develop effective teaching tools for them. Through collaboration with various WRAP stakeholders and youth, we created four teaching modules for WRAP that allow its volunteers to teach its youth computer skills, and designed a youth-oriented website for WRAP to use and maintain.
