Are you or any ninjas from your Dojo applying to attend the CoderDojo Coolest Projects Awards?
@Satoshi-Tajima @Angelo @Montserrat-Inglada @Mario-Vermeulen @Ruma-Singh @Federica-Triglia @KramKroc @Ruth-Willenborg101
@Nuala-Nic-Éil Thanks for the tips! If I don't hear from any volunteers, I'll start reaching out to folks directly.
@Colm Thanks for sharing
You may have heard about our new content creation and translation tool that @Philip-Harney has been working on over the past couple of months. The tool will make creating and translating sushi cards much easier. These PHP cards were created using the tool.
Here are the first two tutorials explaining how to use the tool, which has yet to be officially released to the community.
What are Sushi Cards?
They are printable double-sided A4 sized cards (ideally laminated for regular Dojo use). One card = one concept. Dojo Sushi is a method of communicating programming concepts in easy-to-digest, bite-sited chunks (hence Sushi). This is suited to the CoderDojo environment where youths can use the cards to learn coding skills at their own pace.
I'm thinking about creating a set of Sushi Cards about the Project-Based Learning in CoderDojo that will include the Belt System, Project Tools Examples and Project Charter Template. The Project Tools can be probably split into several Sushi cards according the different paths (similar to the CoderDojo Bento Boxes). What do you think about it?
This category is to discuss Zen. You can post any new features, issues or questions about Zen here!
We collect this information about the users:
This is in case of an emergency (never happened).
Also, in Germany, children are not allowed to waive their rights in form of an open-source license. So, having written consent about the loss of rights by their parents is useful.
We write on this document how the CoderDojo works, so they know how it is different from e.g. School.
Other CoderDojos in Germany use the same agreement as we do. We copied it. However, CoderDojo Berlin worked well without it.
Before Christmas we published a Global Guide to Safeguarding Young People in Dojos on Kata. You can see the Child Protection Global here.
Adapted from the Irish Child Protection Policy that was released in 2015 it is aimed to give all global mentors an overview of how to recruit volunteers, and volunteer code of behaviour.
Our intention is to adapt this document into a unique mentor on boarding process (integrated with Zen) so all mentors are taken through it as they join Dojos around the world.
Any feedback is always welcome,
@Nuala-Nic-Éil Like this circuit for example:
This year there will be an interactive CoderDojo Booth at the Dublin Tech Summit event (15th – 16th of Feb 2017).
We are looking for CoderDojo Ninjas from across Ireland to showcase the awesome projects that they’ve made at CoderDojo for one of these days (either the 15th or 16th of Feb) at the booth!
The projects don’t have to be categorised and any cool project made at CoderDojo is eligible for application. If a youths project is selected they will be invited to showcase it for one of the days (either the 15th or 16th of Feb 2017) at the CoderDojo booth at the Dublin Tech Summit event in the Convention Centre, Dublin!
Deadline for applications is the 23:59 GMT on the 5th of Feb 2017.
If you have any further questions contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please note: this opportunity is for CoderDojo Ninjas (7-17), in Ireland, to showcase their projects at the event and NOT adult Mentors. Adults accompanying CoderDojo Youth will be responsible for the youths attending & need the necessary parental approval. All attendees will have to cover their own cost of travel to the event.
Check out this video of the event for more on Dublin Tech Summit!
2016年は CoderDojo が歩んできたこれまでの流れの中で、間違いなく歴史に残る年でした。CoderDojo の飛躍的な発展はもとより、Foundation 内における組織編成や、国を跨いだ地域間の連携などもありました。
CoderDojo Foundation チームを代表して、この国際的なムーブメントに繋がった皆さんの献身的な貢献や情熱に感謝します。2017年もまた、皆さんとご一緒できることを楽しみにしております。

@Barry-Kennedy congrats on organising the next megadojo! Do you have some advice for @Florina-Rosiu ?
Looks like your connection to CoderDojo Forum was lost, please wait while we try to reconnect.
