Open Source Collaboration

 
 

Trinfo.Cafe is part of Trinity College’s Humanitarian Free Open Source Software (HFOSS) initiative which in collaboration with the Computer Science departments at Wesleyan University and Connecticut College, strives to leverage open source technology to tackle humanitarian endeavors.  Trinfo hosted “I’ll Write The App For You” a program meant to introduce high school students to FOSS and computational thinking by targeting their interests in Android smart phones and teaching them to build applications for the open source phones.

Youth Media in Action 

Like Trinfo’s media literacy curriculum, multimedia programming is a core component to Trinfo’s overall computer literacy curriculum. Trinfo collaborates with several community organizations and neighborhood schools to provide a broad range of multimedia programming to youth after school and during the summer. All of our multimedia programs are designed to teach fundamental multimedia skills (video production, internet search, etc) and wrap that around a theme or topic. The following are examples of youth videos from a variety of schools where themes ranged from ‘Things I Like’ and ‘Make my own music video’ to ‘City Explorers’ and ‘World Traveler’
