Subject: [Advisors] Telecenter Operator Exchange Program AnnouncesLaunch
Hello everyone - the PCNA is the north American coordinator on the following project -please get the word out ASAP. As Peter put it - *stories that travel* in action.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
*July 2006.* The Telecenters of the Americas Partnership (TAP) is
pleased to announce the launch of the Operator Exchange Program. The
program will promote the sharing of innovative models and practices by
supporting relationships among telecenters throughout the Americas.
Telecenters bring information and communications technology to
communities across the globe. Over the years, telecenter operators have
accumulated a vast amount of specialized knowledge. However, there has
been a lack of means to exchange this information with other telecenters.
By using the Operator Exchange Program's web-based platform, telecenter
operators can share their knowledge and skills easily and effectively.
The platform is located at http://www.pcnastream.com/exchange.
The platform uses a "marketplace" concept in order to encourage the
exchange of telecenter-related experience. Telecenter operators may use
the platform in order to request and offer skills to other telecenters
throughout the Americas.
Coordinators are available to support telecenter operators with the
exchange process. The program will fund travel and communication costs
for select projects.
The Operator Exchange Program is funded by Telecenter.org and
administered by TAP. TAP is a hemispheric partnership of telecenter
networks that includes CTCNet, Aspira Association and the Association
for Community Networking in the United States, Somos at Telecentros in
Latin America and the Caribbean, Fundación ChasquiNet in Ecuador, and
Pacific Community Networks Association in Canada.
