Digital Outcasts: The New Bootstrapping

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The term “outcast” covers numerous demographic categories. It can represent the 54 million Americans currently living with a disability. It can refer to patients who live in isolation during long-term rehabilitation. It describes those living in economically disenfranchised neighborhoods. And it covers anyone who relies on a product or service for basic life functions, but are prevented access by poor design.
This presentation will detail three real world case studies of digital outcasts – members of disenfranchised populations who transformed their communities through a “grass roots” approach to technological innovation. Individual examples will include: a young man living with traumatic brain injury whose customized iPad app aids his treatment; the use of virtual reality as a form of pain distraction, and a mobile nutritional support program assisting community leaders living in urban "food desert" neighborhoods.
