Digicam and Tablet PC trainings by Prakriye, January-March 2014

As a crucial step towards enabling more gender responsive governance, the field centre in Mysore organised digicam and Tablet PC trainings with 40 Elected Women Representatives (EWRs) across 7 panchayats. During these trainings, the Prakriye team focussed on demystifying the art of still photography and videography; opening up discussions about the relevance of photo and video documentation to the ongoing work of the panchayat; familiarising panchayat members to the Tablet PC; and introducing the idea of using a Tablet PC as a mobile library with audio and video resources on various 'gender and governance' thematics.
