Pupils from the Vysočina Region presented their DigiMe coding projects at an online conference! The pupils prepared presentations and shared their videos and pictures about their digital school project. They mostly worked with Lego Mindstorm, but also with a 3D printer, with micro: bits and some of them used the Arduino platform for their project. Congratulations to all the school teams for their great contributions!
The Lead partner was invited to introduce the project DigiMe at the 9th International Stakeholder Conference PA9 of the EU Strategy for the Danube Region
“A Resilient Danube Region through Digitalization, Inclusion and Education”. The Conference took place on the 17th and 18th of June 2021 with interesting discussions and presentations. Our project was presented in the Panel discussion Nr. 1 “Promotion of digital skills and competences in the Danube region”.
The conference was hosted by the Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine in partnership with the Federal Ministry of Labour and the Federal Ministry of Education, Science and Research of the Republic of Austria, the Ukrainian Institute for International Politics, L&R Social Research and OeAD– Austria’s Agency for Education and Internationalisation.
Big Thanks to the organisators of the event!
The first special workshop on CO2 and air quality took place on May 26th. Over 20 teachers from almost 20 schools programmed a CO2 measuring device specially developed for this workshop, which can also be programmed by coding beginners without any prior knowledge.
With coloured light-emitting diodes and running lights, school classes and conference rooms are informed in time when it is time to ventilate.
Two Czech teachers from Vysočina prepared a webinar for Austrian teachers from Vienna. The tools presented were: answergarden.ch, flippity.net, mentimeter.com, socrative.com, nearpod.com, linoit.com. These tools can be used in distance learning, but also for testing, presenting, gathering information, or for fun. You can find the video recording from the webinar on the link at the bottom.

To enable a cross-border exchange of knowledge despite the Covid19 situation, a basic coding workshop was held in English on 18 March 2021. Czech teachers from from Vysočina and the South Moravian region learned about contents and methods that are used in Austrian schools.
The equipment for the making workshop “Coding with the micro:bit” has arrived.
Under the motto “Making” participants will learn how to use the micro:bit in combination with sensors, displays, servos and electronics for creative projects.
The teaching aids were designed as part of a long-term pupils project of the school ZŠ nám. Republiky in Znojmo, Czech Republic – Printing of the teaching aids on a 3D printer. In order for pupils to be able to create a 3D model using design programs, they first had to master the issue of the teaching aid. Thanks to the new equipment, a 3D printer, they were able to transform the 3D model into a real form, and at the same time create more copies for easier application of the teaching aid in the class. Pupils were able to present teaching aids (the cube, the map and the letters) to their classmates, thus proving that they handle the topic very well.
The kick-off networking event of 8 partner schools from the Czech Republic and Vienna took place via ZOOM.
The program included introducing the teachers and the project team to each other, presenting the common goals of the partnerships and planning further steps.
