Activity 1

Historical Profile

Weaving memories

"History is a prophet looking back:

for and against what was, it announces what will be"

Eduardo Galeano

Timeline

A timeline is a graphical display of a chronological sequence of events, that can be used to analyse the past, the present, and possible future trends. In the PASSA Youth manual are the steps to make a timeline with self-adhesive notes and illustrations. Here you will find several tools you can use to create digital timelines; some require an internet connection and some, like Scratch, run locally on your computer. There are templates to get you started, so youth can recreate the events they have identified, with the date on which they occurred, adding images, videos and a description.

Online Tools

Knight Lab Timeline

Share your story or event through significant dates with their own texts, accompanied by audio, video and images. The Northwestern University Knight Lab is a team of technologists and journalists working at advancing news media innovation through exploration and experimentation. On their website you will find instructions on how to build your own timelines, for free, using a Google account to collect information on a Google Drive spreadsheet. Click on the image below to view a timeline of PASSA made ​​with this tool. Visit the Knight Lab website for more details.

Copy the PASSA Youth Activity 1 - Historical Profile template into your Google account.

 

Copy the PASSA Group template into your Google account.

 

Look for additional online tools at the bottom of this page.

Offline Tool

Scratch

Scratch is a tool to create digital interactive stories, animations and video games through a visual programming language that is easy to learn. It features an online community with people from all over the world and has been translated into more than 40 languages. It was designed by researchers at the MIT Media Lab for youth 8 to 16 years old but it's used by people of all ages! Scratch can also be used directly online if you have internet access. For more information visit their website. Scratch promotes creativity and collaborative work.

Requirements

For Scratch to work on your computer, first install Adobe Air.

Resources

Download the Scratch software for the operating system on your computer and install it.

Example

Open the historic profile example which consists of a timeline with 7 events, each with its own images and descriptions.

Select full screen

Click on the green flag to see it in action.

Each pin is associated with an event in the timeline that has a color that represents its origin. Red for fire, yellow for air, orange for earth, blue for water, and violet for social phenomena.

Click exit full screen.

Tutorial

Open the the timeline template.

  • Click on the green flag to see how it works.
  • Each pin is associated with an event that can be placed on the timeline in the year that it happened, and has an image and a description attached to it.
  • To stop viewing and modify the template, first click on the stop sign.
  • After you make changes click on the green flag to test them.
  • To save your changes select File - Save.


Step 1 Count the number of events for each color in the timeline you want to digitize. Use pink or red to represent fire, yellow for air, orange for earth, blue for water, and violet for social phenomena.

Step 2 If you have more than one event per color, duplicate the corresponding pin until you have the amount you need.

  • When a duplicate is created, Scratch automatically generates a name, for example, date7; check that each pin has a different name.
  • For each new pin replace the default name in these three areas for the new name.

Step 3 Remove the pins that are not needed.

Step 4 Add the images and descriptions.

  • In the first object, called Information you will find information of all events.
  • Click on the Costumes tab to modify the information by drawing, writing or importing images.
  • Select the number of the costume by the color and pin number to which you want to place information.
  • If you want, you can add an image to your event.
  • Describe the event with the Text tool.
  • To draw use the tools.

Step 5 Save your project.

    Activity 2

    Community map

    Identifying strengths and vulnerabilities

    “A map is the greatest of all epic poems.

    Its lines and colors show the realization of great dreams”

    Gilbert Grosvenor

    Community mapping

    Technology helps us tell our own stories, with images, videos and audios. When these resources are located on a map we create a multimedia representation of the social, political, historical or cultural relations of the community within the territory. This is a document that preserves the knowledge collected by the participants, with which decisions for the benefit of the community are made.

    Drawing the sketch

    You can find the vectorized or the sketched map on the internet. You can also search on websites like Aquaterra MapShop and Freevectormaps.

    Offline Tools

    Google Earth

    In Google Earth you can tour the world through maps. The maps and tours can be customized by adding pins, writing descriptions, attaching photographs, overlaying images and embedding your own 3D ​​models, or adding them from the SketchUp library. The tours can be recorded to visualize them later.

    Google Earth has versions for mobile, desktop and web. Visit their website.

    Requirements

    Operating systems

    • Windows XP, Windows Vista o Windows 7

    "Nature presents termites with challenges which they have to overcome.

    Shouldn’t we also take similar advantages of natural instincts in our architecture?"

    Christine Mbai

    Data Visualization

    Data alone tells us nothing. It has to be analysed and put into context to make sense of it. The graphical representation of data can help us find patterns, explore connexions and analyse data in a way that enables us to generate new knowledge and make better decisions.

    Offline Tools

    Apache OpenOffice Calc

    It is a spreadsheet application where alphanumeric data (numbers, letters and other characters) can be tabulated.

    Information management

    Collecting, classifying, filtering, distributing and archiving information can be aided by digital tools. Documenting in a variety of formats helps discern if a particular condition constitutes a vulnerability or a capacity. By taking photographs and videos, recording interviews with people from the community and classifying the evidence together, with the help of a technical adivsor, everyone can learn to recognize what increases or decreases the risks related to shelter in the community.

    Online Tools

    Planning for change

    Opening paths

    "We do not need magic to change the world,

    we carry all the power we need inside ourselves already:

    we have the power to imagine better"

    J.K. Rowling

    Visual planning

    In order to plan for change, you must first identify a problem that makes the shelter or settlement unsafe and a viable solution to it; the plan are the steps the group decides to implement in between the unsafe and safe conditions. A way to plan is through images and there are many tools that help to support this process. Scratch, for example, makes it easy to modify the unsafe image until it illustrates the safe condition, identifying precisely the needed interventions to move from the current to the desired situation.

    • Goal: drawings of a "safe future" chosen by the group during the Planing for Change excercise. (i.e. safe houses).
    • How many: (i.e. number of houses to be improved).
    • Indicator: what should be measured (i.e. the number of houses that were improved). Guide the selection of indicators so they are easy to measure and provide information that shows whether the plan is advancing.
    • How to measure: how to review the progress achieved (i.e. ) how to measure the amount of improved houses (talking with homeowners, home visits, etc.).
    • Frecuency: how often should the indicator be measured (every week, every month, etc.).
