A lesson in co-design: why the walk to the river beats a trip to the well

Social Reporter

However, what’s often needed to get across the idea of co-design or co-production is a really good story, and I’ve just found an excellent one from the Colalife team in Zambia – or rather from Claire Ward, the film-maker who has produce the ColaLife documentary, The Cola Road.

Colalife update – moving to $1 million trial

Social Reporter

The campaign gathered supporters, and coverage from the BBC, and through a mix of brilliant communications, relationship-building and fastidious project planning now has $1 million to trial the idea in Zambia. This was successful in raising the funds we need to run a trial in Zambia.

Secret of my (our) success

Viv Mcwaters

Other talented people I’d like to hang out with more are all over the planet - in Canada, Zambia, the US, England, Spain, Italy, Taiwan, New Zealand (and there’s a few others in Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth…) But I digress. Half jokingly I often say that I hang out with talented people, and that’s the secret of my success. It’s only partly a joke because it happens to be true.

Practical examples: the community of practice of ICT4D trainers

In July, a first meeting was organized for a group of interested trainers in Zambia. IICD in collaboration with its Itrainonline partners did a community readiness assessment for ICT4D trainers. My colleague, Saskia Harmsen, was one of the organisers.

Finally Simon and Jane gave me an update on progress towards trials in Zambia, which you can also read about here. Simon and Jane are planning another trip to Zambia in the New Year. The highly successful Colalife campaign , which aims to save children’s lives in Africa by getting AidPods of medicines carried in crates of Coca-Cola, now have another tool in their promotional kit: The Colalife Dance.

Getting Home from Geneva - The Standout Moments

Michael Sampson - Currents

I love British Airways, probably because when my parents returned from Zambia in 1978, we flew on a BA 747. I spent my weekend traveling to New Zealand from Geneva. While it was a long way to come, it is amazing how far you can go in a short period of time. Here's my standout moments from the trip. Inflexible British Airways. I was 6. It's the first flight I remember. However, BA got a big red mark from me in Geneva.

One Year On

Viv Mcwaters

I started a new business, worked in Cambodia and Zambia, and tried to live more spontaneously. This time last year I wrote: I’ve taken S teve Shapiro’s advice and have come up with two intentions for 2008 - be adventurous and let go. They are very closely related. Being adventurous is about jumping in, having a go, doing something and letting go of my need to know - in advance - that it will be successful and that I’ll be competent.

Revisiting the Hero’s Journey

Viv Mcwaters

I’d get to work in places like Uganda, and Laos, and Armenia, and Myanmar, and Zambia. It’s about 10 years ago that I decided I wanted to be a scriptwriter. I’ve since discovered that everyone, at some stage or another during their lifetime, wants to be a scriptwriter.

Practical example: analysis questions for a community of practice of ICT4D trainers

Joitske Hulsebosch

Amongst the main topics of the assessment were (starting from the basics of domain, community and practice): Work profile Knowledge areas Group identity in terms of expertise Ease with technologies and languages Existing networks/informal networks Interest in a community of practice and to play certain roles in the community We did lots of brainstorming and thinking, as well as a pretest of the survey in Zambia.

What's the Best Group Design for Highly-Effective Projects?

Michael Sampson - Currents

My earliest memory of flying is from 1978, when my family flew from Zambia to New Zealand (we definitely transited through Singapore, but where else we went I don't recall).

In the meantime, there has been a first meeting of ICT4D trainers in Zambia, and I'll try to do an interview with my colleague, Saskia Harmsen who was there. I'm happy that I can finally link to a four-page summary of the community readiness assessment we did last year, titled Train the trainers or let the trainers train themselves , a collaboration between IICD , Learning Alliances , and an intern from new media and digital culture.
