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 a free and open digital storytelling course for non-dominant teens. The course consists of 5 units with a total of 20 lessons. The class was to be taught from a mobile device to a mobile user and I worked on the development of the media assets including the website.
