Archived Webinar on Digital Inclusion Efforts in MN

Earlier this week the Blandin Foundation hosted a webinar called Working effectively with PCs for People.

The primary audience was Blandin Broadband Community leaders, folks who are looking to boost broadband demand and use in their communities. Some of the topics are pretty-project specific but many are not.  I think folks interested in digital inclusion in any community will find it interesting. It will help you:

  • Put together a great local effort to identify and reach targeted audiences to donate and receive computers.
  • Learn how to create a sustainable program rather than a one-time event.
  • Learn how others have teamed with broadband providers.

Presenters include Sam Drong of PCs for People; Renae Tostenson, Lac qui Parle Valley School District; Carrie Amann, CenturyLink; Briana Anderson, Kootasca Community Action; and Michelle Warner, Mobile Citizen. The webinar includes some touching stories from the field too!
