Title:
Disconnected : Boston's free wi-fi leaves many in the dark
Description:
Daniel Huffman was contracted by the Leventhal Map & Education Center to create a series of maps using Boston-focused data for the purpose of in-class learning activities within the context of the LMEC's K-12 Maptivist Initiative. Daniel created maps for four distinctive topics: rent, gentrification, access to internet, and transportation, designed to meet the learning objectives set forth by education staff at the LMEC. These maps were created with strong points of view to challenge students to think critically about how data can be interpreted.
