- This project is establishing a platform for Living Lab experiments using smart technology in tribal areas of Taiwan, with the goal of empowering high mountain indigenous peoples. We are forging a learning environment through partner-ships between universities, tribal peoples and technology companies that incorpo-rate participatory practices into technolo-gy design. The project also employs oral history taking as part of a service learning curriculum to make minorities an integral part of designing new technology applica-tions and possible business models. We aim to foster a new sense of professional-ism that incorporates civic engagement and considers technologies as tools for conscious social change.
