During the Get Online Week 2017, I organized several workshops and trainings with some of the students from my high school, who have classes with my ICT teacher. Students from 8 grades, ranging from 9th to 12th grade, were involved in these activities. This means about 236 students.
One type of activities was a workshop called “Use of ICT in youth employability”. I made this workshop with every class mentioned above. During it, I told them a bit about Get Online Week. Then, I showed them the I-LINC platform, I asked them to register and to fill in their profile as much as possible. Afterwards, I talked about the Skillage online test and the students tried to take it. Furthermore, I showed them the YouRock.jobs online CV creation application and in that way, they discovered their skills by filling in the activities done by them. Finally, I asked them to take the Get Online Week survey.
Another type of activity was a training on Microsoft Word software application. 2 grades took part in this training. There, I taught them some basic Word skills and they practiced them using several exercises.
The students think that all these activities are useful because they help them to find out their current ICT skills, especially when it is about employment, and improve them later. There are some quotes from them:
“It is an educational activity which prepares us for the future, especially by creating a very good CV, even though we don’t have any work experience” – Loredana, 11th C grade
“An interesting activity which enables us to learn many things” – Cassian, 12th A grade
“A nice and interesting activity which enabled me to discover new skills and to improve them” - Sabina, 9th A grade
Also, I have some pictures taken during the activities:
