Dakarwill create positive perception and visibility for ODMEO by teaching underserved students how to apply a digital media curriculum through the90 Minutes TV program. The content will utilize existing event platforms such as social media week that can provide mobile mass penetration via streamed programming to targeted underserved school districts such as; Compton Unified School District.
Our model will teach S.T.E.A.M. students to create growth and visibility for science and history projects like the “Friends Of Washington Elementary School” Facebook page which was engineered by Ruben Garcia, Chief Technology Officer for Dakar, and is managed by the parents.
With funding, success looks bright for the students of the Compton Unified School District to build an evergreen research project that will bring the best in class tools to the archiving, socializing and distributing the Tuskegee Airmen Legacy.

Dakar is in conversation with the The Los Angeles Chapter of Tuskegee Airmen Inc. about producing an Oral History Portal that will provide a voice for the LA chapter DOTA’s. The Students from Compton will be central to building a digital library that will be vetted by L.A. Chapter Historians. The measurement will be analyzed from the application of the lesson plans to the evolution of a Fallen 66 portalfirst phase, and a Video Catalog of unseen content. With funding, the partnership with stakeholders in STEAM education will have access to the aggregated information for research in the fields of science and technology and apply to challenge based learning.
The World Today
The world has changed overnight and Dakar has created a system to communicate with students, teachers, and parents who are tethered to smart phones, viewing on portable devices, laptops and desktops through Wifi and internet.
Businesses MUST DELIVER compelling and optimized rich media, dynamic text feeds, graphic, audio, video that rival or are equal to popular social media sites.
Statistics will show that consumers are frequently returning to social media sites and their favorite apps when shopping or in search of information. It is a fact that consumers are influenced by social media perception and digital word of mouth opinion.
If the ODMEO invests in our proprietary multi-dimensional marketing (internet, broadcast, mobile, social networks, video channels and exclusive content/stories), they will create growth and sustain visibility that they need moving forward.
Our goal is to build an all-in-one web site portal, social media, and content management/deployment solution for a stakeholder such as the Tuskegee Airmen Airman Inc. , that will deliver a cloud-based solution with a connected app. The foundation of the proposed Fallen 66 web site will provide password protection of files and pages, user accounts each to distribute content, management tools, e-commerce, public relations and marketing capabilities.
Dakar solutions will be taught to students as part our course curriculum working in real time with instructors to capture, build, and design simple to complex high visibility marketing and promotional solutions that will create growth and conversation for brand awareness for our partners
