@Alicja-Cwierz Hi there, I haven’t seen any Dojos using these. Usually when using Raspberry Pis we set up a table in our Dojo with 5ive monitors, 5 keyboards and 5 mouses and Ninjas use them to do Sonic pi projects. I’ve also seen Dojos using them to help older kids move on from Scratch into hardware as you can program LEDs and more using Scratch with it.
Some Dojos use Raspberry pis hooked up to television monitors.
Other ideas are the Pi-top CEEDs which i’ve seen in a few Dojos. They still require keyboards and a mouse to use though so it mightn’t be ideal for what you are looking for. However they are easier to store than traditional monitors and require no set up work like the touchscreen you mention.
If it’s a cost issue, it could be relatively easy to get second-hand monitors, keyboards and mouses from companies, schools or even families in your locality who aren’t using them anymore or have upgraded.
Storage can be a hindrance to some Dojos, particularly those who operate out of particular venues. Have you asked the venue about the possibility of storing a box of resources between Dojos?
If anyone else has tried these touch screens it would be great to hear how you got on or if you have any other suggestions
@Pavlo Sounds like a good idea, if you have the website then why not! We are also looking into getting the videos embedded on our site so you can make everything more widely available through Kata. Once we have the pages with the videos done, and the new links, you can upload the Sushi Cards to Kata, or we can upload them for you
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,

My pleasure! - if they do end up purchasing a domain name in the future- they could still choose to set it up with their github pages if they like https://help.github.com/articles/using-a-custom-domain-with-github-pages/
A new Coder Dojo coming up at Westerhailes in Edinburgh.I have venue and i need a mentor to run the program, because i don’t have the technical knowledge to run it myself.
I look forward to hearing anyone that might be interested.

What wearables projects have you been working on? I’ve seen a few shared now and again on the forums, like this Flora Christmas tree shared by @Sanneke-van-der-Meer, are there any more out there?
Here’s what I made for the Intermediate Wearables Sushi that I’m currently writing…
I have to say it’s pretty exciting when after a lot of hard work sewing you finally plug in the Flora… and everything lights up! It works, Hurrah!!
Also, those NeoPixels sure are blindingly bright don’t you think??
