Twenty national partners have joined the campaign this year. ALL DIGITAL Week 2020 is happening in unprecedented circumstances in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic, when things are changing every day, and all partners have had to transform their work immediately to respond to the crisis. So all the events have been moved online and adjusted to answer the most important issues, the main being schools on quarantine, teachers trying to move to distance learning and parents trying to work from home and entertain and support their kids.
We have already presented the events from some of our national partners, and now we’d like to share what is offered in other countries.
Fondazione Mondo Digitale (FMD), ALL DIGITAL Week partner for the eighth time in Italy, has activated an educative channel to support the distance teaching. It collects webinars, online courses, best practices and tools dedicated to students and teachers: from the online lab on artificial intelligence in collaboration with Microsoft to multimedia resources to talk about bullying and gender violence thanks to the partnership with Google, many webinars are dedicated to coding (Computer Science First Project) and to the safe use of Internet (Be Internet Awesome Project).
