This website features maps of all Silicon Valley ICTD projects, as well as links to ICTD resources such as blogs, videos, academic resources and other websites.

“Silicon Valley’s Emerging Markets” is the most recent publication of the RiOS Institute, presenting an ethnographic study of corporate efforts to link the search for new markets with global poverty alleviation. Hewlett-Packard was at the forefront of these practices in the high-tech industry; its flagship CorporateCitizenship programs in Silicon Valley, Costa Rica and India are the focus of this book.
RiOS Institute is conducting research for the Digital Media and Learning Initiative of the John D. and Katherine T. MacArthur Foundation In that capacity, we are participating in investigating the use of digital media in learning in six different countries around the world. Research findings will be posted from the end of January on Futures of Learning where you can also find information about the recent report of a three-year ethnographic project on kid’s engagement with digital media.
