The publicly available outcomes of the WOMENPOWERCODE project are listed below. This will be updated throughout the progress of our project.
Outcome 2 - A new curricula in adult education and a new expert profile
O3 - Training kit
Definition of Framework: Guidelines for the development of the Training Kit
The training kit will be developed on Moodle and will be a training course with 2 Modules, one teaching users about about 3D printing and one about Internet of Things. Here you will find the final Training Kit content in the following languages:
O4 - Training Course and Open Badges
So far we have developed the designs for the Open Badges.
Next Steps are to develop the Moodle training course and extend the module on how to use Minecraft Pi (Raspberry Pi Edition of Minecraft). As well as the Moodle training course, we will build a game using Minecraft which will work with the Raspberry GPIO through either Scratch or Python. The game will be interactive and the learners will use a breadboard on which they will wire buttons and LEDs which they will connect to the Raspberry GPIO and use them through a simple interactive Minecraft game. This kind of game will serve as a first-class introduction to the Internet of Things world while at the same time it will revive hands-on educational play which has many benefits especially in relation to education.
O5 - Social Learning Community
The Women Power Code Social Learning Community (SLC) is set up as a complementary learning tool to the online training developed by the project consortium. To this end, the SLC was integrated into the same cloud-based learning management system as the online training, called Moodle. Moodle is a learning platform designed to provide educators, administrators and learners with a single robust, secure and integrated system to create personalised learning environments. This tool was selected because it allows to create in the same online platform a set of learner-centric tools and a collaborative learning environment that is easy to use and empowers learning.
The Women Power Code Social Learning Community is created using the forum activity provided by the Moodle platform and it allows learners (and teachers) to exchange ideas by posting comments as part of a 'thread'. Learners can both comment on an existing thread or they and start a new thread of discussion depending on their interests. Files such as images and media can also be included in forum posts to increase the repository of learning resources.
Users dispose of a series of settings that they can use to personalise their use of the forum activity, including display options, replying to discussions options, subscribing to forum discussions or track read and unread forum posts.
The access to the Women Power Code Social Learning Community is made through the https://academy.womenpowercode.eu/ platform, where users need to register. Once they create a profile, they are automatically registered to the SLC and can start interacting with other users.
