DDC

The teens of DDC share some of their positive experiences from this summer's program. Read more about what we did here: eyebeamddc2011.tumblr.com/​

Thanks to DDC teen Ian Antoni for interviews and camera work, and Eyebeam Production Assistant Kyle Kessler for editing together the final cut.

 

Check out a Google map of the final projects from Eyebeam's Digital Day Camp, Summer 2011. Each pin-point represents a 10'x10' square of NYC that DDC teens claimed as their own. They used their spaces as sites for collaboration, creative intervention, research and performance. Through this project, we re-mapped our city.

During Digital Day Camp 2011, 20 NYC teens will spend 3-weeks working under the guidance of a team of creative mentors to produce a series of deep, media-rich stories about our NYC neighborhoods. Their stories will become part of a web-based, interactive map that could include photographs, drawings, videos, music, games, words, infographics, etc—we are limited only by our imagination.
Final projects will be presented at a public event organized and promoted by Eyebeam.

Application period has passed.
Accepted students will be notified on Thursday, June 16

16 NYC public high school students pitch their ideas for new apps for the mobile platform. Over the course of 12 intense summer days, as part of Eyebeam's 11th annual Digital Day Camp program, these teens worked with a team of experienced interaction designers to learn about all aspects of mobile technology ? from thinking critically about mobile phones (what they can and cannot do, what we think they are for, how people use them, and how we think people will be using them in the near future), to taking an idea from brainstorming into development, to thinking about a user story and experience, to communicating an app identity through visual design and graphic elements. These students ideated, mood boarded, story boarded, designed pitches and were all around brilliant.

Over the course of 12 intense summer days, as part of Eyebeam's 11th annual Digital Day Camp program, these teens have worked with a team of experienced interaction designers to learn about all aspects of mobile technology. On our final day together, we will polish our ideas and translate them into a proper pitch - just for YOU: a mix of designers, developers, business leaders, mobile researchers, and more.

Our dream: One of you will help us turn our app ideas into reality! At the very least, we hope you will share your insights and feedback with us.
