About us

The Department of Play (DoP) is a Boston based working group of like-minded activists, educators, researchers, students, and community practitioners using technologies to support youth as active participants in their communities.

The DOP initiative aims to develop easy-to-use, open-source digital toolkits with corresponding curricula to support youth-led active exploration, participatory learning, and civic engagement among children and adolescents in their neighborhoods. We have a few tools in development for digital storytelling, creating maps using digital cameras & kites, using cells phones for community organizing, and to easy to use mapping software for youth to re-conceptualize their neighborhoods using audio-recording and drawings.
