2019: Digital transformation from a fun, inclusive and creative perspective!

AUPEX: FOLK-HIGH-SCHOOL ASSOCIATION OF EXTREMADURA  for the first time was the regional partner for ALL DIGITAL Week, after their first participation in the campaign in 2018.

AUPEX has contributed to the ALL DIGITAL WEEK 2019 with four training events that have helped to promote media literacy by developing critical thinking, digital literacy and trust in technology, by developing cybersecurity skills and, enhancement of employability by developing the right skills for the new digital jobs.

Don’t be fooled

DON’T BE FOOLED! A talk-debate to highlight Media Literacy as a key competence for the empowering of citizenship. The activity is based on a test called “Don’t be fooled! (¡Que no te la cuelen!) to self evaluate critical thinking against disinformation, fake news, etc. The session includes a powerful presentation that guides participants through new concepts and dynamics to better understand the risks of disinformation.

ALL DIGITAL CHALLENGE. A two-phase training with a collaborative approach that has helped to improve participants’ skills, engagement and motivation to make the most of digital technologies, understanding their own way to self-empowerment in a glocal digital world:
– Phase 1 – Workshop I: Digital Content generation workshop + QR code.
– Phase 2 – Workshop II: Introduction to coding with AppInventor.

3D Dare

3D DARE. Maker Culture, DiY, DiWO are concepts that still need to be reinforced in Extremadura, especially among those with low level of digital skills. This training action is designed to boost creativity, innovation and foster collaboration and co-creation dynamics within AUPEX digital competence centres. A practical workshop takes users through an introduction to this topic, identifying potential uses of 3D printers at a local level, and helping participants desing their own creations. A regional contest was held during the ALL DIGITAL WEEK. AUPEX acknowledged the best design with an Arduino kit. Designs are shared on Youtube and a public voting (through Menti.com) decided the winner.

ALL DIGITAL RING 2.0. Last year’s ALL DIGITAL Week Best Event, THE ALL DIGITAL RING, presents its 2.0 version in 2019. For this campaign, users created their own – local – digital content and connected this Scratch project with the Raspberry Pi, so correct and wrong answers will activate green and red LEDs, respectively. A fun way of making the most of this awesome game.

All Digital Ring

Each of the 75 Digital Competence Centres has organised at least one ‘Don’t be fooled!’ talk-debate + another activity (#RetoAllDigital, #3Ddare, #AllDigitalRing). Altogether there were 169 events for over 2000 people.

You can read about each of the events in the blogposts using the links below

Digital Competence Centres have become real Social Innovation Labs, where participants in the different events not only have improved their digital skills and confidence, but also have worked on the value of their own digital cultural heritage and have gone a step forward in the digital transformation of their own towns.

16 local apps, over 40 3D designs, over 40 digital rings, participatory activities, users as protagonists of the digital literacy actions. Their own interests and motivation have run the variety of workshops and discussions.

A campaign with a great impact in the region that will, for sure, inspire new ways of empowerment, training a citizen participation.

2020: Digital Skills for critical thinking and employability

AUPEX: FOLK-HIGH-SCHOOL ASSOCIATION OF EXTREMADURA  for the second time is the regional partner for ALL DIGITAL Week.

AUPEX will contibute to  ALL DIGITAL WEEK 2020 with training events that will promote media literacy by developing critical thinking and digital literacy, build safety and trust in technology by developing cybersecurity skills, and enhance employability by developing the right skills for the new digital jobs.

All training actions will be designed from a collaborative and participatory approach where all AUPEX team will participate by sharing ideas, motivations and feedback from previous campaigns.

AUPEX is working in the design of meaningful actions that will help e-facilitators motivate young people, adults with low level of digital skills and other vulnerable groups to improve their digital skills, focusing on the priorities of the campaign.

For AUPEX, media literacy is a priority, so the main efforts will address the lack of critical thinking, although employability will aslo be at the core of the campaign.

Digital Transformation and labour market require new digital skills but specially confidence and attitude that allow us to benefit from digital technologies, so for AUPEX, it is essential to raise awareness on the issues tackled by the campaign, disseminate promotional and learning materials available online, run training, workshops, and debates and encourage local and regional organisations to participate in all those events.

Since AUPEX works closely with Somos Digital and ALL DIGITAL, the activities proposed by both organizations will also be part of the All Digital Week in Extremadura, and each of the 75 digital competence centres of the network will involve in their turn a number of local and regional stakeholders.

Due to the state of alarm situation in the country, AUPEX has adjusted the ALL DIGITAL Week activities by modifying some of the actions to an online version and creating new ones that can be developed by only using the Internet.

  • ICT experience: experts connection “Rethinking and co-creating future gastronomy from a digital perspective in innovation ecosystems”
    Digital technologies are changing the world of gastronomy. This 1-hour webinar will analyze the impact the new skills required by those professionals in the world of cooking: soft skills such as creativity or adaptability to change or digital skills that foster innovation and open new horizons in a vibrant world where food is considered the most tasty digital content. The interview to José Francisco Pelaez will show new ways of rethinking and co-creating future gastronomy from a digital perspective in innovation ecosystems as Labe > https://www.labe-dgl.com/es/ on 26 March at 12h CET
  • Infopirina, natural remedy against disinformation
    Due to current circumstances, the 2-hour awareness raising activity about the importance of AMI – media and information literacy – and the impact of disinformation on today’s society is adapted to the digital environment. During this exceptional ALL DIGITAL WEEK, we will focus this event on providing resources to citizens so that, online, they acquire knowledge and skills that promote a critical and reflective attitude.
    We will take as a reference for this action the website www.infopirina.org, which helps to understand the phenomenon of information manipulation, including risks, effects and guidelines to fight it.
    Skills to search, critically evaluate and responsibly use information are the only way to guarantee a solid online reputation that, in addition to contributing to a committed digital citizenship, help us improve our own personal brand, as a key element in the improvement of employability.
  • Makers against Coronavirus
    We believe that now, more than ever, developing skillsets for the workforce affected by digital transformation is essential, so starting from this point, together with different organizations working in the field of 3D printing training, in the frame of the Coronavirus Makers project, our 3D printers are participating in the fabrication of different medical supply, especially face shield for healthcare workers.
    Each of our digital competence centre having a 3D printer will coordinate with healthcare services to produce a number of these face shields in order to contribute to stop Corornavirus spread.
  • Online Assistance
    Due to the health emergency caused by CoVID-19 (Coronavirus), the Digital Competence Centers (#NCC) will remain closed to the public until further notice.
    To continue helping you with our support in the use of #technologies, we offer an ONLINE ASSISTANCE  SERVICE if necessary.

  • MIL trainning course (media and information literacy)
    Now, more than ever it is essential to access verified and truthful information. In crisis situations it is essential to have the appropriate tools and skills to face the phenomenon of disinformation. We are all exposed to make decistion in the wrong way if we let ourselves be carried away by information that we believe to be true.
    In this sense, a 20-hour online training about Media and Information Literacy (MIL) has been developed for all e-facilitators of the Digital Literacy Programme of Extremadura, so that the team improves its critical thinking skills and go step futher as experts in the fight against disinformation, boosting a more engaged and better informed digital society.

The following face-to-face actions that were planned to be carried out during the ALL DIGITAL Week are postponed to the end of the state of alarm, when the centers open again:

  •  Augmented reality in your resume
    This 10-12-hour workshop aims to provide participants with knowledge in augmented reality application, so that they can apply them both to their CV and to their professional profile.
  • Digital transformation and security: Escape room “Decode the message”
    This awareness raising session about Key Enabling Technologies (KETs) will be followed by a escape room activity (message decode in different steps using digital technologies and working in groups), where participants will work and improve their safety skills, will better understand the basis of digital transformation and will discover how to improve their employability through the development of skills for new “digital jobs”.
  • Design and play with #AR: Filters for Instagram
    The generation and management of digital content are key competences for the inclusion in a changing labor market. Using technologies in a creative way and combining them with the use of social networks is the “perfect formula” to develop those skills needed to improve employability. In addition, the use of current concepts such as Augmented Reality introduces users to some of the requirements of “new digital jobs”. With this 6-hour workshop, participants, in a fun and game-like way, will understand how to use augmented reality through the creation and generation of digital content to be implemented and used in social networks.
  • Trust and security. Fingerprint and data protection
    This 2-hour interactive talk gives importance of data protection, and raise up some advice on being responsible when publishing and sharing personal information on the Internet. The main objective is to learn how to take care of our fingerprint (and the one of our children, youngsters…) and protect our online reputation.
  • Mbot: Code your robot and face the challenge
    With this 4-to-6-hour workshop, users will learn how to use the mBot robot through intuitive and simple platforms, that will introduce them into coding, computational thinking and creative ways of using technolgies thanks to a fun and interactive methodology.
