Journalists trained on issues of privacy and data journalism.
An intensive workshop two days (8 and 9 May) with international experts in journalism and data privacy. (marathon) 30 journalists, 12 programmers, and other disciplines will learn how to use Internet tools, how to create tools to collect data, how to mostras information to the general public. The hackathon is to develop a participatory tool of open data, a prototype data journalism in Paraguay, and a workshop on digital rights. (Internet security, surveillance)
What locality or neighborhood will your project focus on?
Describe the specific population with whom you will be working.
Journalists, programmers, web developers, activists, enthusiasts developing open data and data journalism.
In Paraguay, this new trend is not installed yet, the idea is to focus on this specific group to carry the flag of data journalism and join voluntary community Hacks Hackers in Paraguay.
These profiles have contacted the computer, working on the Internet, but unknown tools, unaware that these profiles can work together to make studies or journalistic investigations, nor know how to look your Internet privacy.
Who else will be on your team to help implement the project?
Jazmin Acuña @simonajaz
Tomas Enrique Cardozo @kxeltar
What kinds of news, stories and other content will be created?
1) open data project (Phase 1) will be developed. 20 pm (hackathon)
2) a data journalism workshop 10 hours (marathon) to be a research prototype of a specific case in Paraguay, selected by the participants of the workshop will be developed.
3) A conference and workshop on Internet surveillance. (4 hours)
Journalists know better tell a story, news through good use of the internet herramients world, and collaborative work with other disciplines, guarding their privacy.
Have created a global volunteer community of solid Hacks Hackers, invetigativa, collaborative, committed to the news, stories and various contents in Paraguay, through the responsible use of open technology (open data).
What technologies and digital tools do you plan to use in the trainings?
Describe the connections that you or your organization have already established or plan to establish that will contribute to the success of the project.
TEDIC is affiliated entity represents Hacks and Hackers in Paraguay. (one, voluntary global networking) have already made previous meetings http://www.meetup.com/HacksHackers-Asuncion/ workshops in each national newspaper, an email list of data journalism with workshop participants to exchange experiences worldwide.
We need to make community, we believe we are on track but we need to accelerate the introduction stage of data journalism to enter the stage of development of data journalism projects in Paraguay.
We have not had any microscholarships or funding for this community.
How many participants do you think will be trained in your project?
In the open conference day one we think we will have 200 people.
The workshop programming experts: max 15 people (programmers, web development and stakeholders)
In data journalism workshop with experts: 10 people (max)
The workshop surveillance: 25 people (max)
Describe which technologies, tools, and media you will focus on when training participants.
he technology will be given by invited experts, open programming tools (open source) will be used in the prototype of the analytical data journalism tools on the Internet that already exist and others will be developed according to the needs both were used.
The workshop existing monitoring tools were used in the internet: TOR, dolphin zero, message encryption, signatures etc.. (Try to leave the prism)
It is then necessary to be aware of what happened with Snowden. (Internet surveillance), it is important that all developed using creative commons content and source codes are free (open source)
Describe the facilities where you will hold the workshops.
In the Juan de Salazar Cultural Center. The conference will be held in the Hall Juan Manuel de Fallas, up to 200 people. (we have projectors, computer, microphone, internet)
For data journalism workshop will take place in the “sala-taller” of Juan de Salazar, and programming workshop in TEDIC office. (Father Cardozo 719), each participant will carry your laptop.
What is your current relationship with the community with whom you plan to work? What makes you the most appropriate individual or organization to implement this project?
Currently this community is not yet actively made, we need to arm community. Today TEDIC're putting through introductory workshops in every media outlet, and some activities under Hacks Hackers.
Our commitment is to have your Hhasu committed, collaborative and active community that doesn't need TEDIC. The plan is to identify new players for the co-ordination and develop an action plan for the medium term.
What specific challenges do you expect to face when planning and implementing your project?
install the theme “data journalism” is a challenge. There is such a culture of research, and less how to tell stories, news through the data provided by the people, or some open data and analyze company or government.
There egos, it is difficult to build interactive collaborative groups.
The proposal is to show the global trend on data journalism, show how important it is to work in a team and horizonal, and how to care for the safety of all when writing a story or news.
How will you measure and evaluate the project’s impact, specifically: your primary participants, the wider regional community, or the global digital community?
Through stakeholder participation in the conference and the list of incriptos in workshops, mail lists data journalism, Hacks Hackers meetup. Pictures, interviews, press coverage. Social Networking.
We define “success” when we have a solid community Hacks Hackers and finished projects workshops and tools used by the participants.
If your project were to be selected as a Rising Voices grantee, what would be the general timeline of project activities in 2014?
In May 2014 hold the event, and study the impact after 3 months of workshops. (some technology developments will be ready two months after the event)
