East Van Digital Literacy Project
Lorna Boschman initiated the East Van Digital Literacy Project in fall 2014. Her first partnership formed with VIVO, the artist-run media centre that recently moved to East Vancouver from their Main Street location. Dr. Boschman ran a research study looking at how women over 40 used the fitness game Wii Fit Plus in collaboration with the Britannia Community Centre Seniors’ Group (2010-2011), and will submit the East Van Digital Literacy proposal to community members at their January 29, 2015 meeting. VIVO’s Development Officer, Karen Knights, and Dr. Boschman will also submit our proposal to Collingwood Neighbourhood House in the new year. The Neighbourhood House staff have indicated to Ms. Knights that they are eager to create new and innovative partnerships with VIVO and that this program would be of interest to residents of all ages.
