There are two simple ways public libraries in South Australia can get involved to support children in their community on their journeys toward digital empowerment:

Libraries can run their own Commissioner’s Digital Challenge program.

Key Dates

The Challenge commences on 28 January 2020 and closes on 25 September 2020. All programs need to take place within this period.

Programs can be offered in the Term 1 or Term 2 school holidays or after school.

Certificates

Every individual participant who submits their complete Coding Record Form online will be sent a Learn to Speak Robot Certificate of Achievement from the Commissioner.

Libraries running programs are asked to encourage all individual participants to submit their online Coding Record Forms by 25 September 2020 to receive their certificate from the Commissioner.

LIBRARIES CAN REGISTER TO RUN A PROGRAM HERE

Libraries wishing to run a program are asked to register so their details can be included on the Challenge website as a participating library. Libraries can register here.

Participating libraries will be sent the exclusive ‘Official Commissioner’s Digital Challenge Destination’ Seal to display in their library and on their social media.

 

Libraries can promote the Challenge using our free material

Even libraries not running a Challenge program in 2020 can support digital empowerment for children in their community by printing and displaying or sharing any of the free Challenge promotional material:
