Introduce the SDGs and data viz with the Digital2030 Challenge!
As it gets colder, it’s essential to take more time to care for ourselves. The 2022 Digital2030 Challenge educates and inspires young people to use algorithms and data visualization to explore SDG#3: Good Health & Well-Being. Perfect for a solo coding session, or whole class activity, the Challenge is open for submissions - and you’ll get to share your creations with other young people worldwide. Let’s take care of ourselves, and celebrate our good physical and mental well-being through the development of digital skills this winter! The Challenge is a finalist in the CharityVillage Annual Conference & Awards Best Youth Engagement - Organization (20+ staff) category. See why for yourself - take the Challenge!
Get the teens from your communities to become Digital Leaders
Digital Leaders is a virtual youth-led discussion roundtable and we are calling on all high school students that are also interested in potential volunteer opportunities with us! If you know a high school student looking to have meaningful conversations with other youth from their communities about real-world problems and how they would like to solve them with technologies, let us know!
Help us transform communities and the world with #GivingTuesday!
This Season of Giving, we have something special planned for all the teachers and educators that participate in our workshops. Because you share our passion for digital literacy, you can help us give the gift of education to youth across the country. Stay tuned for our #GivingTuesday announcement this November 29th.
Giving Tuesday is a global generosity movement where individuals rally together to make a big difference in their communities. Every tax-deductible penny you donate will support the infrastructure needed to broaden access to high-quality digital literacy.
KCJ was at the Halifax Regional Center for Education Innovation Day
Susan Sharpe, our Education Program Owner, attended the HRCEID on November 4th and 5th. She delivered workshops on Scratch, Artificial Intelligence, and micro:bits.
By combining AI and micro:bits, participants were able to set up a greeting bot as teachers came in the classroom door to the session. Check out the great discussion on Twitter under #HRCEID2022 and join in on this great professional development workshop.
