Happening at:
DJ203C, Mihăileşti, Romania

From Friday 20th of October 2017 at 11:29 to Friday 20th of October 2017 at 11:29

Description:

Technology is causing major societal changes in the world. There are studies that raise awareness about the loss of jobs, but they also underline that fact that new ones will be created. However, in rural areas, where most of the citizens have no digital skills how can one talk of the possibility of new jobs? These citizens are bound to be left behind in this new tech society if we don't act on it. The program that we propose will consist of coding lessons for school pupils in 2 schools in rural area. They will have a chance to build a modular robot and start programing it. The lessons will be organized in the 2 schools in Mihailesti village.

Proiectul CODE Kids – Copiii fac coding în bibliotecile publice are ca scop crearea unei mișcări de coding și STEM în care copii, tineri și bibliotecari din mendiul rural și urban mic își dezvoltă competențele digitale și se implică în viața comunității din care provin prin rezolvarea unor teme digitale creative. Prin activitățile de formare și atelierele organizate este deschisă o altă fereastră către explorarea lumii digitale cu oportunitățile sale de dezvoltare și învățare, astfel încât peste 2000 de copii cu vârste cuprinse între 10 și 14 ani, să fie încurajați să se implice activ și chiar să urmeze o carieră în tehnologie. The CODE Kids project - Children coding in public libraries is aiming to create a coding and STEM movement where children, youth, and librarians from rural and small urban areas develop digital skills and get involved in the life of their communities through addressing digital topics in creative ways. Through learning activities and workshops, the program opens a window of access to exploring the digital world and the developing and learning opportunities made possible by it. This is how over 2000 kids in our program, with ages between 10 and 14, will be encouraged to actively get involved and pursue a career in ICT.

Together we will learn how the concept of coding can develop our computational thinking.By playing and learning Minecraft, 40 students involved in these activities will improve their soft skills-personal and social competences, critical and analitical thinking ,team work and their creativity. Minecraft will involve actively our students in different competitive ways, they will have many challenges and will collaborate to solve some problems.Our students will have the possibility and will find out how they can create their own characters that will be included in their stories.Thus, they will develop their digital competences to write a short text, to understand and to communicate in a foreign language. With Minecraft, our students will enter a magic virtual world.The more advanced students will help the beginners, especially the girls.In this way they will be aware of the importance of working in teams and will show different ways of empathy. Minecraft helps students learn in an easier and active way.

The workshop is dedicated to children in primary school, and aims to familiarize them with the Scratch game, to show that programming can be done in a fun way, even through the game. We have proposed and encourage the participation of many girls. Collaboration and creativity will be stimulated by encouraging teamwork, having the opportunity to learn and help each other. Enthusiasm and striving will be rewarded with diplomas, trophies
