Description:

School of Robotics, in collaboration with ECWT (European Center for Women and Technology) and the ECWT National Point of Contacts, has proposed to the Italian Ambassador of the EU Code Week, Prof. Alessandro Bogliolo, to organize, during the EU Code Week (11-17 of October. http://codeweek.eu/) an event where girls and boys will learn how to use the Scratch free software with the Lego We Do robotics kit. Everyone was happy to participate ! The event will have a physical location in Genoa (Italy) and remote connection with six Italian schools. This is a Pinkoding event, as it is aimed at promoting coding especially among girls: Pinkoding! The event is co-organized by ECWT, School of Robotics, and Code's Cool. Title: We Do Code! Date of the Event: Monday 13 October h. 11:00 Location: Genoa, Italy Target: middle school (11-13 years) THE EVENT The Italian “We Do Code!” event promotes coding activities for girls and boys. Software used Scratch 1.4 or 2.0; robotics kit Lego WeDo. The event will be physically in Genoa (either at the CNR Conference room, or in a school) and it will be also handled remotely, with 6 schools connected to the physical event. Eva Fabry, ECWT Director, will open the event via videoconference. The six Italian schools connected to the physical event in Genoa will learn “from scratch” and will be able to show their code on the common screen. The events will unravel as following: • Introduction to Scratch (girls and boys create their own character and move it) • Introduction to Lego WeDo robotics kit, with sharing on the common screen of the introduction video and slides • In turn, the schools in Genoa and the six remotely connected schools design and show their coding, their characters and stories. • Computer Master will be in Genoa: in turn, one connected schools will code, show their code using the Master. The other schools could code by themselves in the meantime. All the classes will perform the following missions: • Design and creation of a story character with Scratch (the project on paper) • Create the coding with Scratch to give birth to the story character • The same character will be designed and physically created by bricks of Lego WeDo (physical character interacting with its virtual avatar) • Moving the virtual character means moving the physical one

Istituire una danza in codice, a livelli di sequenza diversificati e adattabili alle diverse realtà scolastiche del Comprensivo: scuola dell'infanzia, scuola primaria, scuola secondaria di primo grado. Scopo di questo progetto è l'avviamento degli studenti al pensiero computazionale scoprendo che anche il corpo può diventare un linguaggio per scrivere sequenze in codice, che a ritmo di musica si trasformano in danza . Scegliere una musica comune ad ogni ordine scolastico e declinare ai ragazzi della secondaria la scelta anche su testi moderni. Far elaborare la sequenza di passi in codice da un gruppo di ragazzi della secondaria. All'interno del progetto di continuità verticale i ragazzi dell'ultimo grado scolastico andranno nelle sedi dei diversi plessi a illustrare, ad insegnare i passi ai bambini e alle loro insegnanti. Una giornata in cui nello stesso momento, in ogni sede, tutti gli allievi svolgono la Coding Dance potrebbe essere un evento Flash mob condiviso in eTwinning

La relation au monde est aujourd'hui difficile si l'on ne sait pas se servir d'internet. Les avantages et les dangers de l'utilisation des réseaux sociaux, savoir monter son propre blog, connaitre les bases du langage html et css, tout un ensemble de choses qu'il est bon de savoir ! Apprendre à vivre sa relation aux autres à travers internet, savoir y perpétuer un comportement citoyen. Prendre conscience aussi qu'internet est devenu un outil nécessaire à toute activité professionnelle. Avoir de bonnes bases de connaissances de cet outil sera un plus dans la recherche d'un emploi, la création d'une entreprise, ou la mise en place d'un projet caritatif, associatif, écologique, humanitaire ou autre. De plus, le public visé par cet événement résidant dans notre région des Alpes de Haute Provence, région aux villages parfois reculés, il sera souligné que l'utilisation d'internet est un vecteur de sociabilisation, d'échanges intercommunaux, et une ouverture sur le monde.
