EU Code Week Team

Open online activity


Brussels, BEL

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:

"Parliamentarium" European Parliament Exhibition
Sat, Feb 24, 2024 12:00 AM

Επίσκεψη στην Έκθεση του Parliamentarium για το Ε.Κ.   (  Parliamentarium European Parliament Exhibition) στο πλαίσιο του ευρωπαίκού εγγραμματισμού των νέων εν όψει των Ευρωεκλογών.

Mέσα από οδηγούς πολυμέσων οδηγηθήκαμε και περιηγηθήκαμε ως  επισκέπτες στην καρδιά του Ευρωπαϊκού Κοινοβουλίου, εξηγώντας την πορεία προς την ευρωπαϊκή συνεργασία, πώς λειτουργεί το Ευρωπαϊκό Κοινοβούλιο και τι κάνουν τα μέλη του για να αντιμετωπίσουν τις σημερινές προκλήσεις. Ξεκινήσαμε την περιήγησή μας με ένα εικονικό και διαδραστικό, ψηφιακό ταξίδι στην ευρωπαϊκή ιστορία και ολοκλήρωση. Καθίσαμε στον κινηματογράφο του Parlamentarium και \είδαμε σε 360° την Ευρώπη και το κοινοβούλιό της. Ανακαλύψαμε πώς λειτουργεί το Κοινοβούλιο, πώς θεσπίζονται νόμοι και γιατί η ευρωπαϊκή πολιτική έχει σημασία. Γνωρίσςαμε εικονικά και ψηφιακά τα μέλη του Ευρωπαϊκού Κοινοβουλίου και κατανοήσαμεε τις μελλοντικές προκλήσεις όπως εξηγούν οι αρχηγοί των πολιτικών ομάδων. Τραβήξαμε μια φωτογραφία στο φωτογραφικό  περίπτερο, δίνοντας το δικό μας μοτο για το τι μπορεί να κάνει η ΕΕ για τη δημοκρατία και μάθαμε τι συμβαίνει στο Ευρωπαϊκό Κοινοβούλιο σε πραγματικό χρόνο.

Ένας διαδραστικός χάρτης ορόφων μας οδήγησε  σε μια εικονική περιήγηση σε όλη την Ευρώπη, τονίζοντας περισσότερες από 100 ιστορίες σχετικά με την ποικιλομορφία της ηπείρου μας. Σε ένα άνετο σαλόνι, ανακαλύψαμε τον αντίκτυπο που έχει η ΕΕ στην καθημερινή ζωή των ανθρώπων, με τα δικά τους λόγια.


Visit to the Parliamentarium Exhibition for the European Parliament ( ParliamentariumEuropeanParliamentExhibition) in the context of the European youth literacy in view of the European elections.

Through multimedia guides we were guided and toured as visitors through the heart of the European Parliament, explaining the path to European cooperation, how the European Parliament works and what its members are doing to address today's challenges. We started our tour with a virtual and interactive, digital journey through European history and integration. We sat in the Parlamentarium cinema and saw 360° views of Europe and its Parliament. We discovered how the Parliament works, how laws are made and why European politics matter. We got to know the members of the European Parliament virtually and digitally and understood the challenges ahead as explained by the leaders of the political groups. We took a photo in the photo booth, giving our own motto of what the EU can do for democracy and learned what happens in the European Parliament in real time.

An interactive floor map took us on a virtual tour around Europe, highlighting more than 100 stories about the diversity of our continent. In a comfortable lounge, we discovered the impact the EU has on people's daily lives in their own words.
