CTC Rijeka (Centre for technical culture Rijeka) is proud to be the national partner in this year’s ALL DIGITAL Week!
We were honoured that IRIM (The Institute for Youth Development and Innovativity) joined us during the ALL DIGITAL Week. They held over 40 workshops for elementary school teachers and professors. The workshops were based on supporting the ProMikro project, based on micro:bit ecology. Through personal donations of Nenad and Rujana Bakić and a very successful crowdfunding campaign, IRIM has successfully implemented this project in elementary schools all over Croatia, while donating over 22,000 micro:bits!
Micro:bits are programmable microcomputers, equipped with plethora of sensors, and can be used in various school subjects – from self-explanatory math, physics and computer science, to music and physical education classes!
With such a bold move, IRIM made a giant step in the right direction, and placed Croatia in company of countries such as United Kingdom, Island, and Singapore. Also, this is just a part in their programme that aims to bring Croatian to be fully equal participants in 21st century. Feel free to take a look at their website, and be inspired by their tenacity and drive to make their country a better contender on the world stage while teaching students important digital skills.
Also, we want to thank our event organisers from CATC (Croatian Association of Technical Culture) from Dubrovnik-Neretva Region, who have spread the word about ALL DIGITAL Week and also joined with activities based on the Croatia Creates (Hrvatska stvara). Its aim is to empower youth through education, strongly based upon creative application and promotion of various STEM branches. They will establish 42 new Code Clubs all over Croatia, that will provide a place for youth to learn new digital skills and express them in creative ways.
Also, over 80 citizens brought their digitals skills up to speed during ALL DIGITAL Week in Rijeka, Croatia!
Citizens of Rijeka joined us in 13 lectures and workshops, organised around three types of activities:
We will try to improve our workshops and lectures, while trying to provide the type of content our citizens find useful and interesting, while continuing to improve their digital skills and, consequentially, their everyday lives.
