Micro:bits delivered to schools

September 4, 2023

At the beginning of the school year, we have initiated the activities of the Digital Literacy Revolution project.

Last week, we sent micro:bits to all schools, and soon we will start teacher training sessions.

Almost 300 primary schools are participating in the project, to which we have sent more than 13,000 micro:bits, ensuring that all schools have enough equipment for use in classroom teaching.

The idea is for micro:bits to be available to all students in the libraries, and primary school teachers can “borrow” them for use in their work.

The next step in the project is the education of teachers, school librarians, and computer science teachers, about which we will soon provide more information. Through the project, we plan to organize several training cycles to fully equip school staff for working with this technology in classroom teaching. 

The equipment distribution is organized through a donation from the Croatian Post, which has supported our work and this project in this way.

“The Digital Literacy Revolution” is a project of the Rotary Club Zagreb Centar in partnership with the Institute for Youth Development and Innovation – IRIM and the Ministry of Science and Education, with the support of The Rotary Foundation, Rotary District 1913, and 35 Rotary clubs and districts from Croatia and abroad (USA, Japan, Taiwan, Brazil, and the Netherlands). The project is valued at nearly 390,000 USD and is supported and sponsored by leading Croatian ICT companies. Other project news coming soon.
