Open online activity



Dodona is an online learning environment for learning to code. The platform supports various programming languages and is freely available to schools as a support of their programming classes. Students sign up through their school's Office 365, Google G-Suite or Smartschool account, enroll in courses, and choose from thousands of programming exercises. They can use a built-in editor to program and submit solutions and see automatically generated feedback after just a few seconds. They can use this feedback to adjust their source code in an iterative process that leads towards a correct solution. At any time, they can monitor their progress through a course and see upcoming submission deadlines. As a teacher you can create courses in which you design a learning path with exercises for a specific target group. In setting up the learning path, you can tap from a large collection of carefully worked out programming exercises with varying degrees of difficulty. But you can also add your own programming exercises to Dodona and share them with your colleagues if you want. Via learning analytics you constantly keep an eye on the progress of all students in your courses, both individually and in across the entire group.

Girls are very reserved when it comes to digitalisation, many know how to use their social accounts, but when it comes to more, they are mostly lost. With our online event, we would like to introduce them to the virtual world beyond social media. Innovation is only possible if we all actively participate. The following questions play a central role: My level of digital knowledge? What possibilities do we still have with digitalisation? Have my prejudices about digitalisation been corrected? Where can I make a career as a girl with digitalisation? We would like to take away the contact with the unknown and broaden your horizon concerning the topic. Where can I get better information about it? Are there online platforms that offer tutorials? Which topics could gain more attention through digitalisation?

"Baadaye"SDG´s goes Digital"

Sun, Sep 26, 2021 4:30 PM

We want to teach young people how to use digital media, promoting the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations. The discovery of the SDGs as well as the dissemination of the cause among young people plays a central role. The aspect of innovation should not be neglected. Globalisation concerns all generations, and in order to act sustainably, the youngest must be brought on board. Our focus is to clarify the following questions: How can the SDGs be made more interesting for the digital target group? Which digital tools are suitable for this? What targeted offers can primary schools, for example, offer young people with reference to the SDGs so that they feel connected? Where could the young people be specifically involved? What role does your opinion play ?
