2019: All Romanians Digital

Already a partner in all previous campaign editions, EOS Foundation again, for the tenth time, was the Romanian national partner for ALL DIGITAL Week 2019.

The 10th edition of Hai pe net! (national name) digital inclusion campaign was implemented by EOS Romania Foundation as national partner together with a large and active community of schools, public libraries, NGOs, public access points, computer clubs for seniors and children.

150 centres registered this year for the campaign in order to develop literacy and digital inclusion activities in their local communities and they organised in total more than 200 online and offline activities for over 11,000 people.

Many of the centres that joined the campaign are located in small and rural communities, where the access to communication and technologies is limited. Activities and events implemented locally by national partners covered several topics. Some of this topics were suggested and written by EOS in the campaign guide which was delivered before the start of the events at national level.

From the topics suggested by national partners, activities which marked digital inclusion week in Romania and attracted a big number of participants were related to:

  • First click: more than 80 courses, workshops and activities for absolute beginners were implemented with the aim to support people that never used a computer in their journey to a digital life;
  • Digital competences? No Problem! This category of activities aimed to test digital competences for secondary and high school students using IC3 simulations which were provided by Certipro Education. 730 IC free simulations were taken during the campaign week;
  • Creative programming through Minecraft Education Edition: school students learned how to code and to create their own games using Minecraft tutorials for beginners. More than 30 Minecraft workshops were organised in schools and public libraries.
  • Programming with Micro: bits: with the help of their teachers, school students learned how to code using Micro: bits tutorials and understood in a creative way how to create their own products. This activity was organised for the first time within the campaign and was a great success among secondary and high school students – 54 workshops attracted over 2,000 participants!
  • Online training courses for e-facilitators, teachers and librarians: more than 200 exams were registered on the Microsoft platform and over 20 workshops on this topic were sustained.

Other topics and activities which had great success within the ALL DIGITAL Week were: Code kids – a big number of workshops on this topic were held thanks to the partnership with Code Kids Romania. A range of workshops were organised on topics, such as Robotics, Online Safety and Cybersecurity, and last but not least activities and courses for seniors and elderly people.

Over 110,000 people were reached through media. The EOS Team has tracked over 90 media instances, including:
