During ALL DIGITAL Week in Bulgaria there were 95 events held in more than 24 different points across the country. The organized events attracted the attention of the public, and as a result more than 1700 people received answers to the ever more up-to-date topics of our daily life related to the digitization of the world.
In the information technology era using and storing digital information on the internet /cyber/ space has created new type of crimes and new type of offenders. Invisible - no name, no face, no localization. This creates fear for consumers and the desire to get advice on how to protect personal information and how to safely surf the Internet. All these questions were answered by highly trained lecturers from regional and municipal libraries in partnership with schools, NGOs and regional offices responsible for cybersecurity.
Discussions were held on topics important to young people, such as safe communication in social networks, harm and benefits of video games, etc. In addition to the larger group of young people aged 10-18 years, groups aged 55+ were also participating. For most of the events, the preferred form of presentation was Workshop / training. Interesting lectures were also brought to the public treating the fake news and ways to counteract.
The Workshop "Basic Digital Skills" related to programming as part of the "Generation Code" project also got a lot of interest. The children aged 10-12 years quickly drew on the possibilities of the FINCH robot. The Scratch program has allowed children to model the robot computer and as they entertained with images, sounds and animations, they easily learned the principles of visual programming.
Finally, more than 170 hours were delivered in the form of offline workshop / training to more than 1,700 people. This makes a clear request for the future that society in Bulgaria has needs that could be successfully addressed by campaigns such as "ALL DIGITAL WEEK".
