AbstractThis project involves the creation of a prototype mobile application for a multi-cultural community center in Utica, NY, the Midtown Utica Community Center (MUCC). It is an inclusive multicultural and refugee-friendly space for members to come and join in on different programs, activities, and services that the center offers. Hundreds of families utilize the open and welcoming space on a weekly basis and it serves as a place for them to congregate and come together. It is a place filled with heritage and members who are friends, but see themselves as family. This is where the idea for a mobile application stemmed from. This mobile application would be used by both members and nonmembers of the community center, as well as the staff, executive board, and volunteers. The goal of the application is to enhance the sense of community and bring a feeling of unity to the members of the organization. In this unique scenario, since the application is being built for a community center, the sense of “community” is already present—the utilization of technology such as a mobile application will only enhance, build upon, and create a sense of unity for the current and soon-to-be members of this organization. For the most part, members of this center are made up of various youth age groups. In this paper, I will explore research that has been conducted on the use of mobile technology and applications by youth as well as ways to keep them engaged and interacting with an application on a daily basis. Another area for exploration is the idea of using the application to an application on a daily basis. Another area for exploration is the idea of using the application to be in two places at once, to communicate with peers even though they may not physically be present at the center.

Formulas and the Solver Application Using TI CalculatorsElich, Henry; The College at Brockport (10/29/2004)Have students be able to use formulas for any Math or Science formula using the problem solver application on the TI 84 calculator. The students should be able to use this application to solve a problem that has a new formula.
Exploring the Area of Rectangles and their ApplicationsCheyne, Brian; Bush, Bonnie; Iacchetta, Dave; Lopez, Pablo; Peachey, Bruce; The College at Brockport (8/16/2006)We will explain how to find the area of rectangles using the TI 84 tutorial. We will use “Area Explorer” from Project Interactivate to demonstrate how to find the area of different rectangular shapes. A Pre-designed house plan from GSP will be given to the students (to be loaded in each computer) to simulate a floor renewal. Students will calculate different areas from the house floor plan and collect the data.
Literature for liberation: the development and application of black children’s literatureVasta, Tessa America (2021-05)One of the greatest injustices being committed against minority people in the United States is a lack of representation in literature. The curriculum being used in the vast majority of schools lacks representation of anyone who is not white. The few times minorities are represented, it is stereotypical or racist. This lack of representation ultimately silences students and discourages them from engaging in school. Which then snowballs into greater problems later on, fewer opportunities, dropping out, school to prison pipeline. In order to lessen the achievement gap between white students and students of color, improvements must be made in the US education system.
