© 2004 MIT-Africa Internet Technology Initiative Spring 2005 – SP.772 SP.772 is a 6-unit seminar designed to help bring the vast benefits of information technology (IT) to both local and global communities in an effort to bridge the digital divide in the world. This class is primarily designed for those MIT students participating in the MIT-Africa Internet Technology Initiative (MIT-AITI) program, a student-run organization that sponsors IT-related classes each summer in three African countries: Ethiopia, Ghana, and Kenya. The seminar focuses on preparing MIT-AITI students for their summer trips to Africa, introducing seminar students to current IT-related issues in the developing world through guest lectures and readings, and allowing the students to design, organize, and teach their own IT-related class on weekends to community college students from Roxbury, MA.

By the beginning of next week, we should have materials for advertising (posters, handouts, slideshows, e-mail templates, etc.). Everyone must sign up to help with publicity, or else we may have a weak showing this year.
