This week at the iSchool

iSchoolers in the News

The Women in Informatics (WINFO) student group pulled off another great hackathon on Saturday, Jan. 13. The theme of this year’s hackathon, which took place on the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday weekend, was “What does equality mean to you?” Read our roundup of the event and check out our photo gallery on Facebook.

Assistant Professor Clarita Lefthand-Begay is leading a research team that earned funding from the UW’s Global Innovation Fund. Lefthand-Begay and colleagues from the School of Social Work, the Intellectual House and the UW EDGE Center will investigate water insecurity among indigenous peoples.

Assistant Professor Katie Davis was quoted in a New York Times story, “Is Your Child a Phone ‘Addict’?” Davis says it’s more important to consider what exactly kids are doing online than how much time they’re spending looking at screens.
