Networks Land

Artist-in-residence Ingrid Burrington and fellow Surya Mattu teamed up on a curriculum and toolkit of digital and analog resources for teaching people about the physical realities, hardware, and power dynamics of the Internet. The work was supported by the Knight Prototype Fund.

Networks Land is the result — “a collection of educational activities and material explaining how the internet works, at levels that generally don’t get thoroughly covered in introductions to the internet.”

The activities and material are geared primarily to 11-14 year olds (but anyone can use them!) and involve mainly physical objects, field trips, and games. Please try them out. And, as always, we welcome your feedback; ping: feedback at data society dot net.
