Louisville jams on digital inclusion, human-centered design

Government Technology (GovTech)Lousiville, KY is hosting a human-centered design jam session focused on problems of digital inclusion, according to Government Technology.

Modeled after a hackathon, the one-day event on November 17 will bring together local designers and city technologists to reimagine how Louisville residents sign up for low-cost internet. The jam session represents a new collaboration between Louisville IxDA, the Louisville Metro Office of Performance Improvement and Innovation, and the National Digital Inclusion Alliance to increase digital literacy among residents.

From the article:

The jam is intended, in part, to change that and deepen the focus on digital inclusion. [Ed] Blayney [Louisville Civic Technology Manager]  said there are also many groups and individuals in Louisville who are interested in helping with digital inclusion efforts — which largely entail all work to increase digital skills, literacy and access among residents — and the jam seeks to give them a tangible and direct way to do that, especially for designers.
