What is the OneVille Project?

The OneVille Project is a community research and action project in Somerville, Massachusetts (2009-2012).

Our goal: to support community cooperation in young people's success, by supporting communication and collaboration between the diverse people who share young people's lives.

Specifically, people of all ages in our diverse community have been testing how low cost and commonplace technology might help students, educators, families, and other supporters:

-communicate about each young person's life and progress;
-share information, ideas, and resources across schools and the community.

Six Smaller Projects

The OneVille Project divided up into six smaller projects exploring tools and strategies to help people communicate. Each project has paired local researchers, youth, parents, educators, technologists, and community organizers. We documented the work of each group in its own section:

Data dashboards
Schoolwide toolkit/parent connector network
Citywide information sharing
Computer infrastructure
