Talking about hacking secondary school education in Spain at Coderdojo conference
Coderdojo is a global collaboration providing free and open learning to young people, especially in programming technology. Last weekend David Cuartielles from the Arduino team went to Slane Castle in Ireland to make a brief presentation to the CoderDojo conference about the Castilla project and how we are hacking Secondary School education in Spain.
Here’s the blurb:
During the Spring term 2013, Arduino Verkstad, is working in analyzing how to bring open hardware and software as a way to transform education at secondary schools in the region of Castilla La Mancha, Spain. This talk will describe the way content is being created and validated in an experiment involving 24 schools, 30 teachers, over 500 kids, and a 6-members design team. There are many similarities between the ecosystem at a classroom and the one to be found at a typical CoderDojo group. The author will draw parallels and explain how the content generated for the above mentioned experiment can be applied to mentor in learning about electronics in one-to-one educational scenarios.
The room was packed and they had quite some fun listening to the stories from Dojos all around the world where kids are learning about technology supported by mentors. Specially touching was the presentation about Black Girls Code who started just a year ago with a series of summer camp sessions for over 650 kids across the US.

But, internet radio offers a whole lot more than just your favorite music online.
In my case I listen to all music that is submitted to me before I include it on my
playlist. Closed at heels, all the interruptions of RJs too can be
kept aside, thanks to odysseystreaming.

As long as poets continue to write poetry new ones
will be created to categorize the person’s poems. These are reaching thousands of people at a time who recognize the self help benefits and pass them on to friends who do the same and they become viral. However, believe it or not poems about getting back together actually can be quite powerful when attracting your ex back into your life.
