Fearless Cards

We have developed Fearless Cards, a novel design to help under-served communities overcome emotional barriers to learn computer and internet use. In our work with Hispanic day laborers experience strong emotional barriers in addition to lacking technical skills: fear, anxiety, and lack of self-confidence; their task is made more difficult given their limited English language skills. 

Through an iterative process of design and testing we created the Fearless Cards, a set of basic, easy-to-use instructions to help extremely under-served populations learn to use computers and overcome their fears and lack of self-confidence. 

Fearless Cards help reach the deep pockets of exclusion and allow extremely marginalized populations such as immigrant day laborers gain self-confidence and overcome emotional barriers that prevent them from starting to use computers and the internet to meet their daily needs.

The Fearless Cards Starter deck complete with bilingual instructions is available for free at the Gallery and Download for examination, testing and feedback.

We will be happy to send a courtesy copy of a set if you complete the survey and agree to tell us how it goes in a couple of months.

Unfortunately, we only have the cards in English/Spanish and currently do not have the bandwidth to translate them to other languages but I would love to explore ways in which they might be helpful.
