Meet and Code Balva

Meet and Code Balva tiek pasniegta, lai godinātu veiksmīgākās pasākumu idejas. Tās mērķis ir iedvesmot arī citus piedalīties nākamajos gados, jo digitālā izglītība ir ļoti svarīga. Mēs meklējam labākās idejas šādās kategorijās:

Balvas kategorijas 2020

2020. gada Meet and Code Balvas piecas kategorijas ir sasaistītas ar Apvienoto Nāciju Organizācijas Ilgtspējīgas attīstības mērķiem (IAM). Meet and Code meklē tos pasākumus, kas veicina šo mērķu sasniegšanu, un apvieno tos ar IT un programmēšanas idejām.

Girls do IT!

Dzimumu līdztiesībai ir liela loma mūsdienu modernajā un iekļaujošajā sabiedrībā. Šīs balvu kategorijas mērķis ir palīdzēt novērst dzimumu atšķirības IT un kodēšanas jomā. Mēs meklējam radošus pasākumus, kas sagrauj dzimumu stereotipus un dod iespēju meitenēm kodēt. Šīs kategorijas pasākumi varētu, piemēram, koncentrēties uz intereses un izklaides raisīšanu programmās, īpaši meiteņu vidū, vienlaikus iekļaujot vecākus, lai atbalstītu izpratni par dzimumu aizspriedumiem tehnoloģiju izglītībā

Dažādība

Apņemšanās ievērot daudzveidību ir svarīga individuāliem un organizatoriskiem panākumiem, un, aptverot dažādas perspektīvas, mēs esam stiprāki, apvienojot kultūru, reliģisko un etnisko izcelsmi, vecumu, dzimumu, seksuālo orientāciju un dzimumidentitāti vai izpausmi. Kategorijā “Dažādība” mēs meklējam idejas, kas iedvesmo bērnus un jauniešus pasaulei ar vienādām iespējām. Mēs to attiecinām arī uz garīgām un fiziskām spējām un atšķirīgiem dzīves un darba apstākļiem. Piemēram, varētu vērsties pie nepilngadīgajiem ieslodzītajiem vai pievērst uzmanību IT cilvēkiem ar redzes un dzirdes traucējumiem.

Kodē planētai

Vai zinājāt, ka ar mūsdienu tehnoloģiju palīdzību varat izsekot bitēm? Mēs meklējam pasākumus, kas apvieno kodēšanu un darbības planētas labā. Visi kodēšanas pasākumi, kas sekmē izglītību par klimata izmaiņām, veicinot izpratni par šo tēmu, ir vērtīgs ieguldījums 13. Ilgtspējas attīstības mērķī. Šīs kategorijas pasākumu piemēri varētu attiekties uz gaisa piesārņojuma mērīšanu vai energoefektivitātes instrumentiem.

Kopiena

Vietējā kopiena ir drošības tīkls tās iedzīvotājiem. Šīs kategorijas pasākumos tiek ņemti vērā vietējie aspekti un paražas, un tiek domāts par kopienas īpašajām vajadzībām. Pasākumiem radoši jāapvieno un jāveicina saliedētība starp cilvēkiem un apkaimēm, kurām ir līdzīgas intereses un mērķi, izmantojot aizraušanos “satikties un kodēt”! Šīs kategorijas pasākumi, piemēram, var darboties pie platformas radīšanas jūsu reģionam.

Kodē Eiropai

Sadarbība ir ārkārtīgi svarīga, jo īpaši, ja jāpārvar grūtības un izaicinājumi, ko rada ES digitalizācija. Cieši saistīta ar Apvienoto Nāciju Organizācijas 17. Ilgtspējīgas attīstības mērķi “Partnerattiecības mērķu sasniegšanai”, šī kategorija cenšas uzsākt pārrobežu sadarbību starp uzņēmumiem un apvienot dažādas izcelsmes un dzīvesvietas bērnus, izmantojot Meet and Code pasākumus. Šajā kategorijā ietilpst: droša un atbildīga tiešsaistes plašsaziņas līdzekļu izmantošana, veidu, kā apvienot dažādu tautību bērnus un jauniešus, meklēšana, cīņa ar dezinformāciju un viltus ziņu apkarošana, kā arī radoši risinājumi, kas risina mūsdienu digitālās problēmas visā Eiropā.

Winner in the category: Girls do IT!

Organization: Foerderverein der Grundschule am Koppenplatz

Name of project: Robot Fairytales

Country: Germany

Project description:

Based upon a story in Stanislaw Lem's "Fables for Robots" students aged 7–12 were encouraged to design, build and program characters robots and present them in a video trailer. The combination of theater and robotics provides an easy and fun approach to coding and technology, with emphasis on digital skills for girls.

The jury found the approach particularly innovative. We loved the mixture of theatre, literature and technology, as well as addressing girls exclusively. The event sparks interest in a fun, creative and unique manner. The jury was also persuaded by the extended course offering, which is now open to boys and girls.”

Winner in the category: Code for the Planet

Organization: Fundacja ArchitectsPL

Name of project: Designing and Printing the Coral Reef in 3D

Country: Poland

Project description:

In implementing the "Designing and Printing in 3D Coral Reefs" project, the organisers attempted to rebuild the world's ocean reef using CAD software and 3D printers. On tinkercad.com, young students were able to design artificial reefs that mimic the texture and architectural structure of natural reefs.

During this innovative and long-term project, youth were provided a fun learning opportunity about climate change, it’s disastrous effects on coral reefs, and how marine scientists are using 3D printers to recreate coral. Best of all, participants were able design and print coral reefs with a 3D printer adding an element of interactive fun and engagement for students.”

Winner in the category: Community

Organization: Cooperativa Sociale Meta Onlus

Name of project: San Rocco 3.0 - Your guide to Discovering the Neighborhood

Country: Italy

Project description:

San Rocco 3.0 aims to build a guide to re-discover the neighborhood using a free Augmented Reality platform called Metaverse, which involves coding and provides an interactive experience. During the event, children were involved with unplugged coding activities, such as drawing and adding content to flow diagrams. Older students were able to use Metaverse for the first time, creating geo-located experiences, testing results in real-time, and fine tuning the work created by the younger coders.

We loved the step by step approach to finding solutions. The event first started with an initial meeting to identify the biggest community challenges, participants openly discussed issues and finally developed and presented creative technology solutions. In this way, the participants were not only able to work on current real-world challenges, but also to learn the entire method for finding innovative solutions using the power of IT.”

Anna Sienicka, Vice President of Tech Soup
