Research output: Chapter in Book/Conference proceeding with ISSN or ISBNConference contribution with ISSN or ISBN

Abstract

This paper considers the purpose of community informatics and reflects critically on key questions relating to community informatics research and practice. The paper then proceeds by relating communications and, by association, community informatics to community development. This leads to a discussion to the relationship of community informatics with community voice and empowerment and how these can be supported through community learning. A model of community learning partnerships is presented before being applied to current community informatics research and practices in Kenya.
