Service-learning in Information Sciences (Paperback)

Service-learning in Information Sciences (Paperback)

The information science disciplines (i.e., computer science, information systems, information technology, computer engineering etc.) have significant opportunities for engagement in service-learning. Many community non-profit organization(NPOs) lack the expertise, resources and time to leverage information technology to improve the overall efficiency, effectiveness and value of the services they provide. Students in these disciplines are in high demand; however, if service learning is not well coordinated by the academic institution, it could place a lot of burden on the community partner, and students would not be able to enhance their classroom learning through community services. This book outlines necessary framework and successful scenarios trough presenting implementation examples and analysing the outcomes. One of the examples presented is a community-based mobile data collection and alerting environment for HIV/AIDS orphan and vulnerable children in Zambia. Students implement their software program and network to technologically challenged region and observe how their IT knowledge improved the locals handling of the subject matter. The service learning may not be a brand new concept (i.e., student peace corps); however, service-learning in information sciences is an emerging concept, and it lacks proper instructions to academic faculties and students.
