Some people have been asking about tickets to Coolest Projects International this May. If tickets are included with registration? Do young people need a ticket? Do CoderDojo Mentors? Do parents or other adults?
So to clarify any youth who registers a project doesn’t need a ticket, and additionally each project automatically covers one parent/guardian/adult to attend the event with those presenting.
Anyone else, including younger/older siblings who aren’t presenting need to book a ticket. Tickets are free for those under 18, and will continue to be after the launch and up to the event.
All adults attending (outside of the one person supervising project presenters) need tickets, these are currently free for Community members.
Adults not involved in a CoderDojo, Code Club or other Raspberry Pi Foundation initiative (ie. the general public) need to purchase a ticket, these €10 general release tickets will go on sale from next week.
So adults involved in Dojos should get their tickets asap if they are planning on attending, so they can avail of the early bird offer for Community members.
Ticketing is important for us to secure we are meeting fire-safety standards and can plan accordingly for the event and all attending.
@KramKroc This is great, thanks for sharing. I like the idea of of the group work, especially the profile ones (2/3) about seeing different information people are sharing that they mightn’t realise and getting young people to think about what they can learn about a person, how it might look to others and how they’ll feel about things they’ve shared in 10 years.
Could definitely be broken up and used at the start of Dojo sessions as well to get young people thinking about it.
This category is to discuss Zen, the CoderDojo Community Platform. You can post any new features, issues or questions about Zen here!
Richard : that should be solved by now
We’ll monitor if such thing happen again over the next two weeks and see if any further action is necessary.
Inclusivity is a core value of the CoderDojo movement. Dojos are encouraged to be accessible to youths from all backgrounds and to strive for gender parity.
Hi Phillip, just started with CoderDojo but has been working with accessibility for the last 22 years.
We are working on a open source project called SensAct : https://github.com/AbilitySpectrum/Sensact
We’ll be looking into accessible dojo as I am settling in gradually.
Share your thoughts and advice here on getting set up and organising your Dojo!
Hi! We will download and integrate the translation you’ve done in CrowdIn once you’re done and I’ll work on converting them myself. Arabic will be our first attempt at a right-to-left language, so there may be some issues with getting them laid out initially. I might need you to review my work!
For languages other than Scratch have a different translation process and we use a piece of software to create them that does not presently support right-to-left languages. We are in the process of moving to a new tool that will, but that will take us a few months. That said, we’re happy to work with you on trying to use the existing templates to get the right translations in place, even if they do look a little odd on screen. Your best bet would be to join our Global Slack (http://dojo.soy/slack) and message me for assistance there. I’ll be able to link you videos, answer questions and even do short calls if we need to!
Share your top learning resources and content for learning programming in your Dojo!
@Zita-Daniel-Nad It was really @Pete-OShea who is chasing this up for us
