Learning Philosophies and Practices!
Starting Wednesday, February 7th, MIT Media Lab are running a new round of Learning Creative Learning, for six weeks.
This free course offers useful insights into creative learning practices useful for implementing in a Dojo and very much in line with the CoderDojo ethos. Sign up here if you’d like to receive emails about the new round of LCL, and you will be sent out the details!
If you want to know more or have questions about the second round, please answer on this forum post, or join their Unhangout next Tuesday, February 6th at 4pm EST, to check in and chat!
Here is Carmelo, CoderDojo Bologna Champion (and research assistant at MIT Media Lab who is actively involved with running this course) with our Community Leads Pete and Ross at the Scratch Conference last year in Bordeaux
@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
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!
Here is the Facebook page with updates from the series of Accessibility Dojos being run through the summer in the UK, which has video footage & photos explaining what resources were used to enable those with visual impairments to fully participate in a Dojo: https://www.facebook.com/accessdojo/
If it is of interest to anyone TCD are running a postgrad cert about the use of technology in the classroom. It looks super interesting and uses the Bridge 21 Pedagogy which is very closely aligned to the CoderDojo pedagogy!
You can see more about it in this video and in this folder.
I’ve been informed that CoderDojo mentors are welcome to apply/attend - you don’t have to be a teacher!
Feel free to get in touch with them if you have any questions.
We just have a lot of different materials to choose from. There is enough for any age, Depending on how well the attendees know each other, they can also do projects with their own goals, sometimes together.
