Week 8 – First CoderDojo Interview & Progress Report

Posted: December 21, 2012 in Weekly Project Progress

This weeks schedule included the following:

Weekly Meeting (Skype –  12/12/2012):

This week we have our first CoderDojo interview at the Institute of Technology Blanchardstown (ITB).  This is their end of year session and also involves the childrens’ Christmas party.  This will be exciting as we delve in to the CoderDojo for real and find out just what makes it all tick!
Martyn:

  • Interviewer.
  • Sound.

Guitar:

  • Interviewer.
  • Sound.

Jonathan:

  •  Videoography.
  • Photography.

Niall:

  • Club Liaison Contact.
  • Equipment Requirements Check

We have 15 to 30 minutes to interview both students and children and to get a feel of what CoderDojo is all about.   This is a little bit hard on the nerves as we have little or no experience in real life video interviews.

All of our other work on this project is moving along and we are seeing results from all members of the group.  The project proposal is near completion and the research has been completed and we can now see that there is a good story to be told here.

Work continues on prototypes for promotional media products and weekly meetings are working out well with all members attending at least 3  out of 4 meetings.

The group also communicates by email and Skype online to ensure that all queries or issues are sorted out in a professional and timely manner.

The energy within this group is fantastic and the feedback from the founders, tutors, children and parents has been fantastic; it would seem that all these people really want to see this movement flourish and that it remains a free activity for today’s and the children of the future.
