Join us for this workshop during which we will show educators how they can bring Inclusive App design to their classroom, with an activity suited for pupils from 5 - 18 years of age. 

Great apps start with great ideas. You can join Europe Code Week 2021 carrying out this one-hour Inclusive App Design Activity, which will introduce students to the world of coding and app development. In the activity, which you will learn to carry out during this workshop, students will come up with an app idea connected to a topic they care about, then discover how to design with inclusion and accessibility at the centre of their app design. After completing the activity, educators can go further with Apple’s coding resources for educators and students.

The workshop will be conducted in English but the resources are available in 12 languages: English, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, French, German, Italian, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Spanish and Swedish.

You can find out more about the Inclusive App design activity, that is part of the EU Code Week Challenges at this link: https://codeweek.eu/2021/challenges

SuperRecycle kid à Bruxelles (Un jeu éducatif sur Construct)
Sat, Oct 9, 2021 10:00 AM
Face aux risques sans précédent auxquels nous faisons face et suite au signal d'alarme lancé par la communauté scientifique dans le 6e rapport du GIEC, il est impératif pour nous d'agir afin de limiter le réchauffement climatique. C’est pourquoi, nous voulons sensibiliser la jeune génération à ces questions. De plus, nous pensons que la meilleure manière d’apprendre et de responsabiliser les enfants passe par le jeu. Nous allons donc, à travers ce projet, faire prendre conscience aux enfants de l’importance du tri sélectif à travers la création d’un jeu en 2D sur le logiciel Construct. Ce logiciel simple et intuitif leur permettra également de comprendre et d’apprendre les principes de la programmation et du codage. Durant 4 séances de 2H qui se dérouleront en ligne via la plateforme Zoom, les enfants créeront un jeu, mettant en scène un personnage marchant dans les rues de Bruxelles. Sur son chemin, il trouvera plusieurs types de détritus. A chaque fois qu’il en ramassera un, plusieurs choix de poubelles s’offriront à lui, bleue, jaune, blanche. Sera-t-il faire les bons choix ? Attention vous n’avez le droit qu’à 3 vies.
