Work of Danielle Martin

Danielle Martin graduated as a Master in City Planning from MIT in Sept. ‘09, spending two years leading the MIT@Lawrence university-community partnership and completing a thesis where this case study first appeared. Before MIT, she served as an AmeriCorps*VISTA at the Community Technology Centers VISTA Project at UMass Boston [now The Transmission Project]. She also spent four years directing the Charlestown Boys & Girls Club (MA) Computer Clubhouse. She is currently consulting with several academic and community-based partners around adopting new media strategies, piloting an afterschool program around conflict-transformation and photo-journalism with Peace In Focus, and creating a community within MIT’s Center for Future Civic Media, the Department of Play, focused on the design of new mapping and mobile technology and methodologies to support youth as active participants in their local communities.
