GOW scenarios - used in Poland in 2011 and 2012

The Information Society Development Foundation (FRSI) was the national coordinator for both Polish editions of the Get Online Week: in GOW2011 and GOW2012.

Each time, to help participating institutions and organizations organize GOW events, FRSI prepared ready-to-use scenarios of "informal meetings": events that combine basic computer training sessions with cultural activities, integration, games and entertainment.

Methodology: downloadable scenarios

The scenarios are downloadable online materials in Polish, published on the Library Development Program portal, run by FRSI and addressed to libraries. Each scenario is a HTML website (which can also be downloaded as a Word document) describing step-by-step how to prepare and promote a meeting, tools / online resources to use, activities (games, quizzes etc.) to organize, partners to invite etc.

Each scenario also contains additional downloadable documents, such as promotional materials, suggested links to use during a meeting, software user guides, sample list of participants, press releases etc

Scenarios GOW2011-GOW2012 & GOW2013 upcoming

Six scenarios have been prepared so far: three in 2011 and three in 2012. Another three scenarios are currently being worked on, together with the other Polish organizations coordinating the GOW campaign this year: Cities on Internet Association and the Foundation Supporting Physically Disabled Mathematicians and IT Spe....

In 2011, the campaign in Poland was addressed mainly to senior citizens, so in organized meetings elderly people took part, vast majority of whom did not have any computer skills. The GOW scenarios from 2011 are:

  • Virtual Listeners’ Choice
  • Health Clinic
  • Talk – Priceless


Year 2012 was announced by the European Union as the "European Year for Active Ageing and Solidarity between Generations", and this was also used as the main theme of the GOW2012 campaign in Poland.

Consequently, meetings in 2012 were designed for participants representing three generations: children, parents and grandparents (families or friends). The GOW scenarios from 2012 are:

  • Plant a Tree on the Internet
  • Around the World in 80 minutes
  • A Warm-up before EURO 2012

All scenarios have been published under Creative Commons licenses CC-BY-NC. You are invited to use them!
