Phonar Nation

Design Challenge:

Collaborate with Jonathan Worth, a photographer from the UK, to transform Phonar, his popular open photography course for college undergraduate students, for teens in the United States. Phonar is short for Photography and Narrative (picture-making and storytelling).

Claudia’s Involvement:

I partnered with Jonathan Worth, and youth from the Cambodian Family Center in Santa Ana to create a developmentally appropriate curriculum for an free and open course for non-dominant teens. The curriculum consists of 5 units with a total of 20 lessons. I, alongside colleagues at the Hub helped to develop the website that was built on a mobile device, since the class was to be taught from a mobile device to a mobile user.
