How-to workshops at ALL DIGITAL Summit 2017

During the event on Day 1, participants will get a chance to attend one of the following workshops. These “How To” sessions are designed to give delegates a practical understanding of how to carry out a particular activity. Our speakers have experience that could help delegates to understand the pitfalls, practicalities and lessons they may have learned.

Workshop leaders will also produce a simple ‘guide’ to the subject that will be available to delegates during the session and to all online after the event.

1. How to bring kids to coding and coding to kids

Martina Mayrhofer, El Teb; Yakov Ostanin, PH International

The workshop will give you a practical understanding of how to launch and carry out a successful extracurricular coding club and a network of coding clubs, based on two different, yet similar experiences – Coding clubs in Russia and Code Club International, powered by Raspberry Pi foundation. Together we will talk about what coding clubs stand for and what is the philosophy behind Code Club International. You will learn how to use the tools and create your own game through Scratch or Kodu Game Lab and why only coding classes are not enough.

Moreover, you will learn the core principles and pitfalls of running a coding club and design your own exciting coding club programme for youth.

 What you need: preferably your own laptops


2. How to create and use open badges

Doug Belshaw, consultant, writer

In this workshop, participants will design and issue their first digital credential. You will learn about the Open Badges specification, as well as what kinds of organisations are using badges and for what purposes. You’ll be taken through a design process to think about what kind of badges might work in your context, and the badge pathways that learners might find valuable. This process will include mapping other organisations you could work alongside to endorse one another’s badges.

This workshop is suitable for all levels of experience with credentialing, whether your organisation already issues certificates and awards, or is just interested in how that might be possible. The range of case studies introduced will help participants see ways in which badges can be used in a range of contexts to signify anything from achievement to affiliation. You’ll leave feeling empowered to get started with badges straight away when you return to your organisation!

What you need: preferably your own laptops


3. How to work with disadvantaged groups to empower them as prosumers

Veronique De Leener, MAKS vzw

In many computer courses and learning centres, facilitators focus on training learners how to use a specific software like Word, Excel, Photoshop, etc. instead of promoting computational thinking. MAKS vzw experience with low-skilled learners showed us that creative processes with the computer can increase not only digital skills but also 21st century skills like problem solving, creativity, communication, self-expression.

In this workshop, we will show and let you experience our different approach to digital learning through creating a digital story or a game. We will give you different concrete examples of how people can learn to produce something with the computer and together we will find out the benefits of this methodology.

What you need: preferably your own laptops


4. How to engage and enable young e-facilitators to better support your target groups (I-LINC workshop)

Julia Ackerman, Germany; Greta Jurgutyte, Lithuania; Mihai Macarie, Romania. Support: Iva Walterova, ALL DIGITAL

Three e-facilitators, selected as the best young digital changemakers by the I-LINC project for their work during Get Online Week (GOW) 2017, will lead this workshop. These young people have gone through a journey of learning and self-improvement enabling them to help people to acquire digital skills and to empower them to actively participate in a continuously changing digital society.

Representing differing backgrounds, views and experiences from their home countries Germany, Lithuania, and Romania, the speakers will describe their journeys towards becoming e-facilitators. After this introduction, the scene will be set for a workshop, during which participants will learn, discuss and co-create ideas on how to best encourage and enable young people to become young e-facilitators in their organisations. The young e-facilitators come from such diverse local, regional and national backgrounds, that each participant of the workshop will be able to relate, share and learn from the discussed experiences.

An I-LINC policy paper created by ALL DIGITAL with active involvement from the young e-facilitators will also be shared with the participants of the workshop. Workshop participants will have a chance to contribute to the policy recommendations in this paper. The paper will be shared through I-LINC channels and contacts on the European and national policy maker level.

What you need: any device from which you can access Internet


5. How to use UMI (Ubiquitous, Mobile, IoT) technology to promote STEM education

The CodeMob Consortium is looking forward to sharing its experiences with you in Barcelona!

Project Lightning Talks at the ALL DIGITAL Summit 2017

Followed on the success of the last year’s Project Lightning Talks session, we will have it again during our annual event on 5 October.

Each presenter will only have five minutes and will answer the same questions to get to the insight of their projects:

  • what social impact it made,
  • what you would change,
  • what you would keep the same,
  • what you learned.

Lightning talks will be followed by brief questions from the audience. The talks will not cover the typical project quantitative results and deliverables, so this is the chance for you to get acquainted with them, to be well prepared for the talks.

The projects to be presented are:

1. Simbioza between generations for e-literate Slovenia

Tjasa Sobocan, project manager at Simbioza Genesis, Slovenia

Simbioza-logo-ENGNationwide actions of Simbioza started with an alarming fact that Slovenia was at the bottom of e-literacy among people aged over 65. We developed a nationwide project on raising e-literacy of seniors with the help of young volunteers, where Simbioza model is based on using locations with existing infrastructure and inviting all stakeholders to participate. In early 2014 the Statistical Office of the Republic of Slovenia published data showing that shares of daily computer and Internet users among older people are three and seven times higher.

Nationwide actions of e-literate Slovenia are happening annually since 2011 and include week-long intergenerational computer workshops across whole Slovenia, where young volunteers teach the elderly the basics of computer and internet. We promote the right to access Internet technologies to all citizens and we believe that digital society must be inclusive for all generations. Combining the energy of the youth with the experiences of the elder we prepare both target groups for a digital future.

2. Seniors@DigiWorlD

Katrin Schuberth, project manager at Digital Opportunities Foundation (Stiftung Digitale Chancen), Germany

Logo seniors-at-digiworldToday Digital Media is essential for communication and participation in society. Although senior citizens could benefit from digital opportunities, they are the population group which is often not yet online. Therefore the project “Connect Seniors to the Digital World“, or in short Seniors@DigiWorld, which started in October 2016, aims to empower senior citizens to use tablet computers independently and profit from this usage in daily life.

As first contact persons, social workers, volunteers or staff of senior residences can support their clients to find their way to the digital world. The project will develop and test the training for those ‘multipliers’ , who work in libraries, digital competence centres as well as retirement homes.  It will be implemented in Lithuania, Romania, Spain and Germany starting January 2018. The background of this project is the experience of former projects implemented by the Digital Opportunities Foundation.

 

3. Teaching vulnerable groups about new methods of digital payment

Gitte Olsen, director at Telecentre-Danmark, Denmark

8660133206-logo_telecentredanmarkThe new methods of digital payments are changing rapidly and constantly, and a large part of the population is very concerned and feel insecure about those changes, especially the elderly, women and (other) vulnerable groups. Telecentre-Danmark believes independent Information and tuition is needed, so through this project they offer training and awareness raising on new payment methods for vulnerable groups. They have arranged theme days, talks, mini conferences, Village Hall meetings for 300 participants and also produced a 30-minute TV programme with more than 1 mln views.

The project has been implemented in collaboration with Danske Bank Foundation, dk4 TV channel, NETS, The Danish Consumer Council, local banks and municipalitis

As a result, Telecentre-Danmark has played an important part in the community service and received a lot of national attention. We feel that it is important that we participate as frontrunners in current topics, in order to adapt to new digital changes and to show our commitment to the community.

4.  New learning spaces for 21st Century Skills at the Digital Learning Lab

Gerhard Seiler, Education innovation strategist at 21st Century Competence Center, Germany

21ccc_200pxThe Digital Learning Lab shows exemplary new learning and teaching spaces for the future of education –in schools and furthermore in different contexts of digital inclusion. The project deals with the most important future-oriented questions regarding digitization:

  • Technology, didactics, spatial design -How is the future (balance) of learning and pedagogical work?
  • Cloud based education – visionary or reality? – How can digital networking succeed in education?
  • Will we learn more effectively when the technical infrastructure and didactic
    framework conditions are optimal?

The concept of the digital learning lab is a competence-oriented: New learning means to strengthen communication and collaboration skills, creativity and critical thinking as a precondition for solving problems together and learning from each other –the key of individual digital literacy development. We realized the project in 2016 funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research, want to share experiences and step on to transfer.

5. AUPEX – Digital empowerment in rural Extremadura

Antonio Román, coordinator for European projects at AUPEX, Spain

LogoPAT16_webAUPEX is the folk-high-school association of Extremadura (Spain), a non-profit organization that develops a variety of cultural and lifelong learning projects across the region, the Digital Literacy Programme is among them. The project started in 1999 and is funded by the regional Ministry of Education and Employment (through the Employment Service). Every year AUPEX submits an adapted proposal gathering innovative and cutting-edge training activities to be implemented over the next year.

The methodology is based on an active listening of the population requirements together with an updated content programme, which ensures their motivation and inspires a range of workshops and activities where participation and practical aspects are critical. The aim of the current project focuses on providing digital skills according to the EU Digital Competence Framework for Citizens.

E-Facilitators and project coordinators within the digital literacy programme collaborate and cooperate with local and regional stakeholders, fostering an effective cooperation network. The programme is implemented in 73 permanent ‘Digital Competence Centres’ (NCC for its acronym in Spanish), operating in more than 140 villages (with occasional activities). Since facilitators work in touch with citizens and identify their specific needs, the programme is a great opportunity for digital and social inclusion in rural areas. Since 1999, around 126,000 (12,6 % of the Extremadura population) users have taken part either in workshops, talks or individual sessions for ICT training.

6. Code Your Future

Sara Van Damme, project manager at Digipolis Gent, Belgium

code your futureCoding is a fun challenge, and it offers many advantages as well! It stimulates analytic thinking, cooperation and creativity – indispensable skills in today’s (digital) society. The ‘Code your Future’ project gave underprivileged children and youngsters the opportunity to develop these skills.  The project consisted of three sections:

  1. Train-the-trainer sessions for people working with underprivileged children and youngsters. They learned how to use the Kodu programming tool and were given tips & tricks to teach coding skills to their pupils. See more at www.codertoolkit.be.
  2. Children and youngsters attending holiday care services created their own games, coached by support workers who had completed the train-the-trainer programme.
  3. The most impressive, original or exciting games were presented during the ‘Digitale Doebeurs’ (Digital Fair). Visitors to the fair could try out the games in full-fledged gaming arcades.

This project was realised in 2016 by Mediaraven, Fyxxilab, vzw Jong, Leebeekje, Habbekrats and Digipolis – Digitaal.Talent@Gent.

7. CodeMob – Teaching Coding and Mobile Devices in Telecentres 

Julie Moors, trainer/coordinator at Interface3, Belgium, and Danijel Borna Fiket, trainer at Telecentar, Croatia

logo-codemobThe CodeMob project introduced two new training modules in telecentres: 1) coding and 2) the effective use of mobile devices. Project partners – Interface3 from Belgium, Telecentar from Croatia, ComNet from Hungary, and El Teb from Spain – have developed the training curricula and piloted them with e-facilitators (in form of training of trainers) and end-users who were mainly young, unemployed people. Our academic partner, the Technical University of Dortmund has been taking care of the quality of results. This project is a continuation of the telecentre movement’s long-standing efforts in supporting the teaching of digital skills and capacity building of e-facilitators.

In this lightning talk we address the wider telecentre community, particularly those who would like to include coding and mobile devices training in their offers. We will provide a brief overview of the curricula and how it can be deployed. Our purpose is to provide guidelines on how organisations outside the project consortium can use the courses and curricula developed within the project, as they will remain available online after the project’s end. We will also talk about tips and tricks from project partners’ experience on how to attract the target group (young jobseeking adults) and how to promote such courses among target learners.

 

Special presentation is based on the request of our members:

What is the Digital Skills and Jobs Coalition and how to get involved?

Pia Groenewolt, project officer at ALL DIGITAL, Belgium

Digital Skills and Jobs Coalition logoThe Digital Skills and Jobs Coalition is part of the new EU Skills Agenda. The DSJC works on both quantitative aspects (pledges) and strategic aspects (national coalitions). The purpose of these actions is to bridge the digital skills gap and prepare for the digital transformation. The specific objectives of the coalition are outlined in the member’s charter which will be discussed in the presentation.

In this lightning talk we will review the Digital Skills and Jobs Coalitions and how you can get involved in various capacities. How does one become a member of the DSJC, who can be a member (no individuals)? What are pledges and who are invited to make pledges? How can you get involved with the National Coalitions, and what to do if you have no National Coalition in your country?

Where innovation is happening

Participants of the ALL DIGITAL Summit on 5 October will get a unique opportunity to attend the Innovation tour of Poblenou, the tech neighborhood in Barcelona.

Innov Tour 3

When talking about Barcelona, many of us first of all think about the sea, beaches, mind-blowing Gaudi, beautiful avenues and exquisite Art Nouveau buildings. There is more to it – it is indeed the city of Innovation, Tech, and Start-ups.

Did you know that Barcelona …

  • is the Mobile World Capital and hosts the Mobile World Congress?
  • is the number one smart city in Spain and ranked fourth in Europe?
  • is home to the MareNostrum supercomputer, one of the most important research infrastructures in Europe.
  • in 2016 was the fifth hottest startup hub in Europe after London, Berlin, Paris and Amsterdam, and it is continuously growing?
  • boasts of its 22@Barcelona, one of the most ambitious urban projects, which transformed dilapidated area of Poblenou into a thriving centre of innovation?

Innov Tour 2

Poblenou is the geographic center of the city of Barcelona, which in the 19th century was the centre of Industrial revolution with factories and textile mills and the first steam machine in Spain on 1833 – hence called the Catalan Manchester. In the 20th century  the ‘New Village’ (as ‘Poblenou’ means in Catalan) got into a decline as most of the factories were abandoned, fell into disrepair and buildings were used by squatters and artists.

Thanks to the City Council-led project named 22@, aiming to foster a new economy based on ICT, the Poblenou was transformed from an industrial graveyard to a very attractive neighbourhood. Today it is helping to redefine the future of cities and, the model is a benchmark in urban, economic and social transformation in cities like Rio de Janeiro, Boston, Istanbul and Cape Town.

Innov Tour 1

The project was developing around 5 specific “knowledge clusters”: ICT, Bio-Medical, Design, Energy, and Media. The idea was to connect both the international and local communities by creating physical and social networks to facilitate collaboration, capture talent and develop a sustainable business ecosystem. Now the neighborhood is a center for software tech companies, research centers, universities, digital fabrication laboratories (Fab labs and Maker spaces) and citizen associations.

The delegates will visit some of the most remarkable spaces in the neighborhood to see and experience the digital transformation taking place in the city of Barcelona.

Leitat

The spaces we will visit are:

LEITAT

Private non-profit industrial association, LEITAT is a Technology Center with the  objective to collaborate with companies and institutions by adding technological value to both products and processes. It is focused on industrial research, development and innovation (R + D + 2i). LEITAT promotes market-oriented R & D projects in the chemical, energy and environmental sectors, biotechnology, the acquisition of new materials and nanomaterials, and the productive improvement of industrial processes.

POBLENOU URBAN DISTRICT

The Association Poblenou Urban District was founded in early 2012 with the aim to promote the Poblenou area as the new Art and Creativity district of Barcelona. It is in Poblenou where ultra modern buildings such as the Agbar Tower or the Design Hub of Barcelona coexist with old warehouses, art galleries, organizations, design studios, advertising agencies, higher education centers, production companies, hotels, and restaurants.

Since its inception, the association Poblenou Urban District has worked to establish the neighborhood as the latest cultural and business epicenter of the metropolitan area of Barcelona, following similar companies in other cities such as the Wynwood Arts District in Miami or the Meat Packing District in New York.

FAB LAB BARCELONA

Fab Lab lives inside the Institute of Advanced Architecture of Catalonia and develops different educational and research programmes related to the multiple scales of the human habitat. It is also global, in collaboration with the Fab Foundation and the Center for Bits and Atoms of MIT, of the coordination of the Fab Academy program. The Fab Academy is a distributed platform for education and research, in which each Fab Lab works as a classroom and the planet as the campus of the largest University in the world, where students learn about the principles, applications and implications of the Digital manufacturing technology.

ALMOGAVERS BUSINESS FACTORY

Almogavers Business Factory (ABF) is a public-private incubator for new innovative companies. The equipment aims to contribute to the development of new companies from various sectors and activities, offering incubation and pre-incubation spaces, as well as different programs of strategy, management, internationalization and business financing. These allow promoters of new companies to improve the knowledge and skills that contribute to the consolidation of their initiatives and to business excellence. The collaborating entities of ABF are in charge of defining the profile of companies that want to incubate and of the entry requirements.

Fundacion ESPLAI, celebrating 10 years of mutual understanding and sharing knowledge

By Pedro Aguilera

Barca_200710 years ago a group of telecentres networks managers met at Fundación Esplai headquarters in Prat de Llobregat to discuss about the role of telecentres to improve e-skills of European citizens.  At that time, nobody doubted the power of telecentres at the local, national and regional level. The main issue of the meeting was to consider the possibility to strengthen our efforts to create a pan-European structure with 2 challenges, 1) to share knowledge among managers, e-facilitators and other stakeholders at telecentre arena and 2) to become a key player at the European level. On 19 June 2007, something neither quite clear nor very well structured, but full of energy and passion, begun to walk.

Today, ALL DIGITAL is a key player at the European Level, with more than 60 member organizations, a professional structure including independent staff and Board. ALL DIGITAL is an example to other European organizations on how to build a vibrant ALL DIGITAL movement in Europe.

Fundación Esplai is a proud founding member of the former Telecentre Europe, now ALL DIGITAL.  We have been involved in ALL DIGITAL movement from the very beginning with a simple challenge to reduce the digital divide among excluded people, developing innovative projects from the grassroots.

_OD_7212To achieve our goal, Fundación Esplai has developed several initiatives during the last 10 years, adapting projects and proposal to citizens real needs, we would like to share with you some of these initiatives

1. Promoting access to ICT thought our own network RED CONECTA

formacion TICRed Conecta is our initiative to promote digital literacy and employability. It is a network of 67 centres around Spain operated by local NGOs. Red Conecta promotes digital skills and digital literacy among vulnerable groups, mainly focusing on NEET’s, women over 45 year old, long-term unemployed, seniors and migrants. More than 300 e-facilitators have been involved in Red Conecta activities during the last year, assisting 23,000 final users.

2. Youth civic engagement in CONECTA JOVEN

DSC_1219Conecta Joven is a Service Learning methodology project shared by a network of NGOs, which promotes the participation of young people aged 15 to 19 in their community through training, aimed at improving the digital skills of citizens (youth, adults, and elderly) and groups with difficulties of integration. Conecta Joven promotes networking between education communities, local NGO’s, young and elderly to fight against social exclusion through bridging the digital gap.

3. Developing coding attitudes at an early age with Conecta Code

This initiative promotes access to programming and the creation of code at an early age in telecentres, thus supporting creative uses of technology, empowering children and young people to develop strategies and skills for problem solving by creating their own software. The project is using current tools to programme development without typing code, such as Scratch, App Inventor or Windows App Studio.

4. Reducing seniors digital gap, Mayores Conecta2

conecta joven o mayores conecta2It is a training experience for elderly people, focused on the possibilities offered by smartphones, tablets and the Internet.  The methodology is based on “bring your own device”. Each participant learns with the tools they use in their daily life with the support of e-facilitators.

 

We look forward to welcoming you in Barcelona in October to celebrate 10 years of history!

Welcome to Barcelona and Catalonia

The Telecommunications, Cybersecurity and Digital Society Area of the Government of Catalonia
is pleased to meet you and be at your side while you attend the ALL DIGITAL Summit 2017, on 4-5 October. As a local partner of the meeting, helping El Teb and Fundación Esplai, we will try to do our best to make your visit to Barcelona and Catalonia easier and happier.

The Catalan economy is not based on the exploitation of natural resources. Its main force is the people, their solidarity, work, enthusiasm and knowledge. You probably know some typical Catalan picture: the Catalan human castle, made by the cohesive work of people, adding their force to build a tower of bodies. This image shows the spirit of Catalan people, always ready to offer their hands and kindness for helping the others. This is what we can offer you while you visit our small but pretty country.

Catalan people like to work and grow by a continuous learning. We are located at the north-east of the Iberian Peninsula, as the door to Europe, and we are open-minded, focused on the international affairs to learn and offer our point of view. This spirit has taken us to be a smart region, interested in ICT tools, mobile technologies and digital innovation. All of them are oriented towards the people, to offer solutions to the needs of our citizens.

Punt TIC collateralsIn Catalonia we have a telecentre network, called Xarxa Punt TIC (meaning verbatim ‘ICT Points network’), which was born 18 years ago, in 1999. There are more than 600 Punt TIC around the country, owned by city councils, foundations, non-profit entities and other, that offer Internet connection and ICT training, and empower citizens (under 25, over 45, entrepreneurs, unemployed and disabled people) in digital skills. Some of these centres make activities in a new paradigm, the digital social innovation, from a four-helix perspective, which includes academia, government, companies and citizen.

IMG_4826Looking at this process, which agrees with the European Union and the Smart Catalonia strategies, in 2016 we decided to promote the Catalan digital social innovation system, through a new program called CatLabs (Catalan Laboratories) and the CatLabs Network. We invited all the digital manufacturing spaces (Makers, Fablabs, Ateneus), coworking spaces, Punt TIC (telecentres), living labs, Professional Training centres and other projects and labs to meet each other in the Catlabs Nework in order to work together in open innovation and open science with social aims.

IMG_6025Of course, universities, research centres, government and companies have been working together for a long time. And citizen have been the consumer, the tester and the recipient of innovation, ICT tools, and public policies. The CatLabs’ main aim is to involve people in their design, in the finding of solutions to their needs.

We will be happy to share with you everything that we are learning in this process.

It’s a pleasure to welcome you to our home. We will try to make your stay in Barcelona and Catalonia as happy as possible.

Meet the Summit host – El Teb!

By Esther Subias, El Teb

Born on the initiative of educators and teachers of a district of Barcelona, ​​the Raval, to attend the needs of young people, El Teb is about to celebrate its 25 years of existence.

18581821_1645967968776981_6513697194584259963_n

It is a pleasure for us to be the local partner of the All Digital Summit, together with our European friends, this year. This meeting will undoubtedly be an opportunity to continue networking, learning about new trends, and designing a digital future for citizens.

Under the motto “we work for social transformation through participation, learning and socialization of ICTs“, in the Teb more than 20 professionals from the social, pedagogical, technological and communication fields carry out their task to achieve full Inclusion of citizenship and development of the nearest territory.

We believe in and bet on the social and solidarity economy and we are flexible, innovative and, above all, social. And, of course, very technological: we defend the free software, we promote such innovative activities as programming with Scratch, 3D printing, digital citizens laboratories, robotics, etc. We like to experiment with technologies and discover the social and formative use they can have.

25 years of experience with ICT tools

10325508_1116581848382265_7067486840219639626_nOver the years, Teb professionals have learned from our daily practice in the Raval, and that is why we try to transfer that “know-how” and also our view of the world to other projects, other entities and other places. For example, we created the first telecenter in Catalonia and we have helped to develop the other 650 ones. We manage, at the request of the Government of Catalonia, the network of Telecentres Punt TIC and also projects of advice to the associations. We learn from them.

CodeClubMakers-700x560Always in social settings, we help entities and citizens to incorporate technologies to better manage and communicate and develop their own networks and activities (training, workshops, projects, etc.). We also develop web platforms and e-learning training, based on the use of free software. We provide very specific training on the social use of digital tools and, in recent years, we have participated in European technology projects with our ALL DIGITAL partners. We are always learning and offering our knowledge, freely and openly.

In Teb we believe in technology as a tool of transformation; in innovation as a strategy to solve the problems in different ways; in communication and storytelling as powerful tools of empowerment.

Welcome! If you enter the Teb, you enter your home.
