Many Dojo's take a break during the summer and return back in September.
Over 7 weeks 'Back to Dojo' is highlighting all the insight and resources available to you as a CoderDojo member, so you can be completely ready to start back at your local Dojo!
I'll add to this post updating it each week with 'Back to Dojo' content so you can find and discuss it all in one place!
Included announcing the new UI for our community platform and explaining how you can free up your time by using our free Dojo resources.
In these posts we gave wireframe examples of the new UI and a video explaining how to navigate our resources site to find exactly what you want.
We've highlighted how you can create and share content with the Global CoderDojo Community on our site. We also discussed the top programming languages our developers and content team recommend for beginners and how you can find resources for each of these on our site and elsewhere.
We're highlighting the release of more new content (HTML/CSS) for your Dojo and how it fits in with our content that is already available. This week you'll also have the opportunity to post your feedback and ideas for new challenge cards, on this Forum thread!
This week we're showing you our new ice-breakers (very handy!) to use at the start of your Dojo. We will also be launching our new Ul as well as new challenge cards.<-PS. They are Awesome!
This week we will be highlighting how people can post and join groups on our forums and how Dojo Champions can create a Dojo event on our new look community platform!
We're releasing our new E-Learning modules this week. There are two modules initially: 'Inspiring Ninjas: How to be a CoderDojo Mentor' and 'CoderDojo Ethos: Implementation and Practice'. We are also releasing some cool new scratch sushi cards including a scratch project to celebrate 5 years since our very first Dojo!
This week we are sharing 'A year in the life of a Dojo'; giving advice on running, planning and reviewing your Dojo, from our Content lead Philip.
I would love to know from the above resources ^^^ what Dojos found most useful? Or was there any other resources you would have like to see included?
