Technology for a Cause - Enhancing Skills Empowering Kids
Hi People :) just an update on the Techy Kids Show. It was the 16th Episode of the Techy Kids Show today (live) with Kids at the Ranaa Child Welfare Foundation. Four of the kids namely Asad, Danish, Musa and Fawad demonstrated how to make a Clicker and 2 player game in Scratch. Amidst electricity concerns kids were able to make the games simply working on one laptop and an internet connection. They began by sharing different uses of Scratch and what are the different functions they can do in Scratch. They were able to add sprites, change size of spites, change background, write code to move sprites in different directions, create a score variable to record score etc. Kids engagement throughout is appreciated like anything.

Implementation steps

Discuss and Share the Idea

Consider the following questions:

1. Purpose of starting and online show?

2. Availability of resources? space availability? timings?

3. Topics to  be discussed and shared?

4. Consider parents approval and feedback regarding use of social media for a live show?

Forming Teams
Assign different roles and responsibilities to students and shuffle every week. Students can be Program Directors, Tech Guros, Teachers, Students, Assistants , Hosts etc. Discuss their roles with them. They will learn resource management, organizing space, learn to share and collaborate, be more confident and responsible. Assign at least one teacher to a group of 5 - 6 students.
Check for resource availability

Once the idea is approved, teams formed, next step is to check resource availability. The show can go live with just one computer or laptop, an internet connection, a mobile device for recording/live session,  mic, speaker, need a space/room where students can conduct the show,, minimal furniture required. They can discuss with the school head and request for a room for the weekly show. 

Set up a space for live show

Flyers, posters, banners could be created and displayed in the room. Furniture and equipment could be set in any way both students and teachers are comfortable. Round tables could be used for group discussions about the show (before and after). A talk show like arrangement can also be made. Let students arrange furniture and equipment, give responsibility to take care and arrangement of resources.

Demo Sessions / Practice Sessions

Encourage students and teachers to practice sessions, write down the rough scripts and practice as much as possible. Carry out a short demo session live to check resources, network availability, any technical errors that may arise during the show. Consider asking teachers/students/parents to join in the demo show. Take their feedback and make changes accordingly.

Live Show Time

Consider sharing invites to show through social media, share flyers and posters about the show with all concerned. Use schools social media outlets for sharing with parents and the community. Support and encourage students no matter how they perform, encourage questioning and explaining the tasks in details with examples and links to daily lives. Start and end on a polite note. Keep all data intact, safe at the end of the show.
