It sounds like your browser is treating your code as text, which is usually down to the extension (the .html part) on the file being incorrect or missing. If you’re using a text editor like Atom, VS Code or Sublime, you can usually spot this because the code isn’t highlighting properly.
If you are using a coding text editor, fixing this should be as simple as choosing File > Save As and then making sure you enter the full filename (program.html) in the dialogue box.
If you’re using Notepad on Windows, or TextEdit on Mac, you can follow these instructions.
You don’t have to re-type your code in any case, even if you have to move to a new file (which may be the case if you’re using TextEdit), you can just copy-paste it.
Hello - I am a teacher using CoderDojo in my High School classrooms. I have two separate classes (B Block and D Block). I currently have all my students as attending one dojo but I would like to view them according to their class room (B or D). Is there are way to sort the attendee names as I see fit?
Also, I have been having a difficult time signing some kids up…I send an email (wish there was another way to add them - text link, etc) and they don’t always receive the email. I have to resend, some times three or four times. Still can’t get 3 or 4 of my students onto my dojo. Any suggestions as to what to do? Thanks!
Organising a Dojo
Exciting news, in two weeks we are launching our first 3 week online course to support people interested in starting a Dojo with advice and resources to help them get set up.
Now as Community members already running a Dojo you likely already know all the details covered in the course. However, if you have friends, colleagues or neighbours who heard about CoderDojo through you, who have told you how they would like to set up a Dojo in their local area but lack the experience or the know-how to do it, then it would be amazing if you could tell them about the course. They can learn more and sign up here and we will notify them in two weeks when the course is set to begin.
We will be announcing the launch of the course tomorrow, but I wanted to let you all know before then.
Yea, most Dojos run on Saturday afternoon, Weekday evenings (usually either Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday), or Sunday afternoon but it really depends on your area, accessibility and local customs. Most run using the same term times as schools locally as this is a timetable parents are generally used to. I know with our Dojo when we moved it from Wednesday to Monday we had a decline in attendence, so we moved it back. Asking parents would be a good idea, to see what most suits them
There are only 2 weeks for people to register youths projects for:
Coolest Projects International in Dublin, Ireland on May 26th
The regional Coolest Projects UK, in London on April 28th
Coolest Projects offers young people involved in Dojos around the world the opportunity to present the projects they have created at their local club.
Take 10 minutes today to register young peoples projects involved in your Dojo to SAVE THEIR PLACE at the event.
Remember you can register a project even if it isn’t finished and go back and edit details up to two weeks before the event if they change.
Coolest Projects is is open to beginners as well as experienced participants. It’s all about the experience and learning gained from being involved, sharing and celebrating what children have created.
Every ninja from your Dojo should be encouraged to participate and benefit from the experience.
If young people in your Dojo are unable to attend these events, they can still enter our #MyCoolestProject social media competion, where they can win a Pi Zero, stickers, badges, books and more. Find out more here!
There is a design choice behind it (people already booked for specific days), but i can understand how annoying that could be.
We’re currently reviewing the event system, pretty sure @Conor-Murphy would be interested in this feedback
In the meantime, i’ll take care of your request on Monday.
Thanks for getting in touch. It’s great that you are interested in starting a Dojo!
In most cases the building insurance of most locations should cover you, but occasionally some companies and venues require a Dojo to have their own public liability insurance. It might be good to consult the company’s legal department for advice on your ninjas’ ages and insurance requirements for children, as they sometimes vary. You are allowed to engage in fundraising for your Dojo to cover unavoidable costs such as insurance.
If you need to provide a document which outlines the ethics and regulations of the CoderDojo ethos, that can also be found here: http://kata.coderdojo.com/wiki/CoderDojo_Charter_of_Ethics
If they need any further evidence of your club, once you have gone through the Start a Dojo process and have been verified, I would also be able to provide you with a letter to confirm the integrity of your Dojo.
I hope this helps Cindy!
