A large amount of Dojos are hosted in Libraries around the world. CoderDojo is an easy and fun new program that can be hosted by a library to give young people the opportunity to get involved in learning about coding and technology in a fun, safe and social environment.
Some videos from Libraries:
Pros of hosting in a Library:
If you are interested in starting a Dojo in your local Library contact the CoderDojo foundation team: email@example.com
If you are running a Dojo in a library share your exp and tips below.
Hi @Federica-Triglia This isn't top priority for us and will not be completed in 2016 as it's a nice to have. For now events can be created (and duplicated to save work!) in advance but you can publish manually when you want.
We understand that a set publish date would save work for volunteers but there are some other key functionality i.e. booking flow for parents and waitlists that are must-haves for the community and are top priority in terms of events in this quarter.
We are currently working on the roadmap but I would expect this in Q1/2 2017.
As ever - always great to get contributors where we can for these great additions to the Platform
Hi @Christian-Vermeulen good to hear Right now we are getting the source files and we built the course with limited video content so this would be easy to do. It is likely that we will also be using CrowdIn, which we use for the Platform and for content, to crowd source translations from the community. After some small last minute changes we will get the source files this week and will be planning for translation!
Yohei Yasukawa, co-founder of CoderDojo Japan, explains the learning practices used in Dojos in Japan and about hosting a regional DojoCon in Japan last month.
You can see the video here!
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,
Did you see our new blog with top tips for encouraging girls in tech?
You can see it here. If you have more ideas or input, just comment below
This category is to discuss Zen. You can post any new features, issues or questions about Zen here!
This is possible and we are happy to create a "local" badge for your Dojo. We have done this for the Kilkenny Dojo in Ireland. Please send the following to firstname.lastname@example.org :
RE translations we will be adding the criteria for the current badges to crowdin (platform we use for translations), this will be done in the next few weeks and we will be reaching out to the community for support on this.
In the meantime, you can see crowd in here.
Any questions please let me know.
After a little work we have completed the activities required to set up CoderDojo Ireland as an company, we now intend registering with the Charity Regulator and progressing matters in this area.
What are the issues effecting your Dojo?
How can we help?
We have been asked by some Dojo's to investigate leveraging the scale of the CoderDojo movement in Ireland to investigate options in terms of access to Dojo Public Liability Insurance cover and to explore options in terms of trying to get Dojo's access to discounted mobile broadband WIFI routers both of which we are now working on (more to follow). But what else do you think we could / should be doing to help your Dojo?
@Barry-Kennedy congrats on organising the next megadojo! Do you have some advice for @Florina-Rosiu ?
