Description:

Generation Code: Born at the Library is an interactive exhibition showcasing the top innovative digital exhibits from public libraries across the EU. The exhibition takes place every year at the European Parliament during EU Code Week. Sponsored by MEP Library Lovers, the exhibition explores how future technologies are interacting with libraries across Europe. Unbeknown to many, Europe’s 65,000 public libraries are a uniquely accessible space for users (both children and adults) to improve their digital skills. In the EU, over 2,3 million people a year attend a digital literacy course in their library, learning anything from basic digital skills to coding. It is a time for celebrating the amazing work that public libraries do every day in filling the digital gap of our communities. Join and explore the exciting world of coding, robotics, 3D printing, virtual reality and much more with fun activities that simulate the daily work of public libraries in introducing people to new technologies!

This activity is for:

  • Employed adults

Games in Schools

European Schoolnet (the network of 34 Ministries of Education) and ISFE (representing Europe’s video games industry), team up to launch the fifth edition of Games in Schools, a project designed to train teachers across Europe how to use commercial video games as pedagogical support in their classrooms, all for free. Learning by play has the potential to increase student engagement and learning outcomes, and technology can support them even further by allowing them to express themselves digitally. Register to weekly follow the Massive Online Open Courses and learn more about how you can use video games as a pedagogical support in your classroom.
