The Centre of Technical Culture Rijeka organized 18 workshops within its premises for people of all ages and gathered 10 partners who organized workshops throughout Croatia.
A total of 76 workshops were held in Croatia within the All Digital Week campaign. These workshops covered a wide range of topics: robotics, programming, digital services such as Facebook and Google, Internet security, visual identity, etc.
One of workshops that we conducted was Fake News. This time, Fake News was for 15 years or older people, so we had a mixed crowd. They were informed about disinformation, the various ways it can be disseminated, and how to critically read media texts, how to check sources using online tools, and to be careful while sharing information. A more simple workshop was our lecture about Facebook that has proved very interesting to seniors. There was also a 3D printing workshop both for youth and for 15 years or older participants.
For unemployed we had a Make a CV workshop that was very useful. For those that are concerned about their security on the Internet, we had a Ethical hackers workshop for youth. In a short but interesting session they had learned about a few type of hackers and how to hack HTML websites. Google Tools workshop helped people to find out what services Google offers - how to use Google Drive, set reminders and share events with the Google Calendar, and how Google Docs are good, safe and free replacement for Microsoft Office, while not requiring any installation. Photoshop and Visual identity & Canva were very popular since people are nowadays very interested in digital photography.
We had a lot of workshops for elementary school students who quickly learned the basics of programming. To make our workshops more diversive, we made a several unique workshops: Robot vs Robot with LEGO Mindstorms, micro:bit and mBot, and presented them in a way that would leave them wanting to learn more and join our existing educational programmes and develop their digital skills.
Older participants enjoyed a lesson about e-Citizen service, since it offers free access to many documents and services provided by the national and local governing bodies, and can save a lot of time that would otherwise be spent while waiting in queues.
The Center of Technical Culture Rijeka wants to thank all partners who ran the events during ALL DIGITAL Week:
The IRIM (The Institute for Youth Development and Innovation) has supported All Digital Week with over 30 workshops for librarians who will continue to transfer knowledge to young people who come to libraries. IRIM has equipped all of these libraries with micro:bits - a little programmable microcomputer, equipped with a multitude of sensors that can be used in various school subjects - from self-explanatory math, physics and computer science to music and physical education classes.
Futura Dubrovnik has organized workshops of Arduino microcontroller and video game programming.
The partner Marlena Bogdanović has taught elementary school basics of computer thinking and Dalia Kager worked with the micro:bit to make a STEMazing World.
Connect IT has organized workshops for Mbot, LOGO, Phynton and Scratch programming and development of video games for kids. For those with a more creative mind, there was a workshop for digital painting and visual design.
The Koprivnički poduzetnik held an intensive education on creating a website for unemployed persons aged between 20 and 29 years. They also hosted a IoT workshop where students learned about microcontrollers.
Code Club Karlo took care of coding workshops in Karlovac, while Trsat Primary School held modeling and coding workshops.
The Rijeka City Library - American Corner has held a 3D printing workshop and demonstrated some of the basic 3D technology capabilities.
The Primary school Petar Zrinski Cabar has organized security workshops on the internet and the organization Tehno OZ has held two coding workshops.
